Another benefit of family dentists is that they offer a wide range of services. While some services might be more common for one age group than another, they can often help patients of all ages.
For example, a frenectomy is often recommended for children, but sometimes adults benefit from tongue-tie release. Having access to this service from your regular dentist makes it easy to get treatment, rather than hunting down a different dentist for the procedure. Similarly, while dentures are common for the elderly, sometimes children need them.
