The name Family Dentistry of Lyons says it all: this is a dentist office that is well-suited to handling the needs of every member of your family. You can feel confident that kids, adults and seniors will all receive top notch care from Dr. Emmanuel Puddicombe, one of the Rochester area’s kindest and most talented dentists. Whether you and your loved ones need a cosmetic or restorative dental procedure, or just general dentistry care, Family Dentistry of Lyons is here for you.
Biannual Examinations and Cleanings
Every person in your family should have a dental checkup twice per year in order to protect the ongoing health of his or her teeth and gums. Obviously, flossing and brushing your teeth are the best first defense to keep away harmful bacteria, but those good habits cannot do as much as a deep, professional cleaning. At Family Dentistry of Lyons, our hygienists use the best tools available to clean areas in the mouth that you and your children cannot reach on your own. Removing tartar and plaque will reduce your risk for cavities and gum disease.
During these appointments, Dr. Puddicombe will also inspect your mouth for problems and irregularities. He is keen at noticing signs of infection, tooth decay and periodontitis, even if the symptoms are so minor that you and your children did not recognize them on your own. In the event that Dr. Puddicombe does discover an issue that needs treating, he will be able to take care of it promptly to restore both the functionality and appearance of you and your family members’ mouths.
Most adults who are great brushers and flossers started these habits as children. Dr. Puddicombe understands the importance of instilling lifelong habits as early as possible. He is an effective communicator with kids of all ages, which helps kids to not only be unafraid of dental procedures, but also commit to brushing twice each day. The American Dental Association (ADA) suggests that you start bringing your children to the dentist by the time they are one years old — sooner if their first tooth appears before that.
Why It Makes Sense to Choose a Family Dentist
While many dental practices focus on treating either adults or children, those offices do not offer the convenience of bringing in the whole family for concurrent appointments. Not only will that save you time and trips to the dentist, it spares you the hassle of having to arrange childcare. Moreover, kids are more likely to take their own oral health more seriously if they can witness your own commitment to the process.
Because Dr. Puddicombe is skilled at handling general, cosmetic and restorative dental needs, you will not need to worry about searching for specialized dentists when one of those needs arises for you or a family member. It is undoubtedly comforting to know you can develop a rapport with a single dentist who has earned the loyalty of countless patients throughout his career.
