At Legacy Dental in Salt Lake City, Utah, we strive to provide dental care for your entire family. We understand that each phase of life has a different set of dental concerns. We believe that introducing and getting your child acquainted with a dentist early helps to create good oral hygiene habits and build positive relationships so that they spend less time in the dental chair over their lifetime.
Our dental team has experience and expertise in treating patients of all ages. This means that your child can grow up seeing familiar faces, increasing the chances that they will maintain their good oral hygiene habits into their teens and adulthood. Also, since we provide dental care for all ages, your entire family can come in so that we can reinforce those positive habits that start at home.
We offer a variety of dental services, including:
Approximately 80% of dentists practice "general dentistry" and while many of them do treat patients of all ages, they are often more restrictive in the age groups they work with.
At Legacy Dental, we are a family dental practice. Therefore, we have the experience and expertise to work with your entire family- from infancy to senior adult. This means that we can get everyone taken care of in one appointment and you don't have to run around town to different offices to have your teeth taken care of.
Typically, a general dentist will treat younger children that don't require specialized dental treatment. These dentists often handle cleanings and basic dental care. On the other hand, if a child requires specialized treatment, they are often sent to a pediatric dentist, who only treats children under the age of 18.
If you prefer to visit the same dentist with your child, a family dentist may be the better choice. This way, you can schedule all appointments in one day and have everyone taken care of. At Legacy Dental, we don't treat just one age group. We have the experience and expertise for treating oral issues in all age groups.
Once your baby's teeth start coming in, and even before, they are vulnerable to oral diseases, including tooth decay and cavities. After the first tooth comes in at around 6 months, it's important to begin regular dental visits. By starting oral care early on- both by visiting a dentist and practicing proper oral hygiene at home- you help your baby develop good habits as they grow.
As they naturally begin to lose their baby teeth and their permanent teeth erupt, your children will require specialized dental care. During this phase of life, it's critical that you establish and reinforce good oral hygiene habits and schedule routine cleanings- at least annually, but preferably every 6 months. This will prevent issues such as cavities and tooth decay, as well as reduce the risk of other serious dental conditions.
Depending on their diet, lifestyle, and oral hygiene habits, many teens are vulnerable to cavities and decay, as well as gum disease. Therefore, it is critical to continue routine dental care throughout this age. Also, we can monitor for issues, such as malocclusions and recommend braces or aligners, like Invisalign, to rectify the problem before it progresses too far and requires surgical intervention.
We understand that the older you get, the busier you get- which can make it easy to skip your routine dental care appointments. However, it's important to keep in mind that oral care is just as important for an adult as it is for children and teens. In fact, after the age of 35, your risk of tooth loss due to periodontal disease or tooth decay increases. Other issues that are common for adult patients include TMJ, breakdown of fillings, oral cancer, and more.
As your body continues to age, especially beyond the age of 65, new oral challenges will begin to present themselves. Some of the most common issues include oral cancer, serious gum disease, root decay, dry mouth, and attrition. However, you can reduce your risk of these and other issues by practicing proper oral hygiene habits and regular dental visits.
