Do I Have to Have a Family to See a Family Dentist?

Absolutely not! If you’re a single individual or part of a childless couple, our Lexington team gladly welcomes you to receive essential dental care at our office. Visiting a family dentist, even without a family, still allows you to benefit from a lifetime of skilled care dedicated to keeping your smile healthy over time.

When Should My Family Visit the Dentist?

We begin treating patients as young as three. Both our team and the American Dental Association recommend that you and your family visit the dentist every six months for routine cleanings and oral health exams. Our goal at Welcome Family Dentistry is to help you and your loved ones achieve beautiful smiles and lasting oral health no matter your age or current dental health situation.

What Does a Dental Visit for My Family Include?

During first visits to our office, Dr. Tumbarello takes the time to discuss your concerns and goals for treatment. He gently examines your smile using an intraoral camera to look for signs of tooth decay, damage, wear, gum disease and educates you on his findings. Our team takes a series of digital x-rays to gain precise images of the underlying health of your teeth, roots, gums, jaws, and more. During exams, he also evaluates your medical and dental history and asks questions about your diet and lifestyle.

During the first visits, you can expect:

  • A warm and inviting atmosphere paired with modern technology to maximize your comfort
  • A genuinely friendly staff to greet you
  • A complete tour of our practice to help relieve feelings of intimidation or anxiety
  • Oral health and hygiene education using easy-to-understand language for all ages
  • Compassionate and respectful attitudes with you and your children

First visits can also include nutrition and behavior counseling for you and your children. This helps you as the parent, break unhealthy oral health habits in your children, and promote positive ones.

Making Dental Care Safe and Fun for Children

We work closely with parents and children to build foundations of trust. We love helping parents feel at ease when bringing their young ones to our practice. We also enjoy making children feel comfortable and confident, so they are excited about visiting us.

Our team makes sure to use kid-friendly language and teach kids the best ways to keep their smile healthy in terms they can understand. Educating kids on the importance of caring for their teeth and gums helps instill positive dental habits that protect their smiles for many years to come.

What Kind of Dental Issues Do Adults and Seniors Face?

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss, and the risk for developing the condition increases with age. Gum disease has been linked to causing issues with diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.

Years of inconstant oral hygiene, taking certain medications, and genetics can increase the chances of developing gum disease. Older patients tend to have problems with dry mouth due to various medications and may also experience difficulties with old restorations.

What Services Do You Offer Adults and Seniors?

Portrait of a beautiful senior woman with healthy smile sitting at the dental officeBecause some adults and many seniors have more difficulty healing, it’s important to consider how each treatment could impact their short-term and long-term oral health. Our dentist carefully evaluates your options and makes recommendations based on helping you keep your natural smile as much as possible.

We rely on innovative technology, such as safe digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, to help us create the right treatment plans for our patients. Our cosmetic and restorative treatments use top-of-the-line materials that are designed to provide safe and natural-looking results.

If your needs include root canal therapy or tooth extraction, Dr. Tumbarello applies gentleness, precision, and skill. When helping to replace one or all missing teeth in your smile, we provide beautiful and life-like crown, bridge, and denture restorations to complete your smile like new.
