It can be difficult and overwhelming to try to find a different dentist for each member of your family, especially when they range in age from very young to adult. That’s where a dentist specializing in general dentistry, like Dr. Michelle Munoz, can step in! Dr. Munoz provides dental care that covers all stages of dental development and is suitable for the whole family.
Benefits of a Family Dentist
Because general dentists often have training in many specialized areas, like orthodontics, root canal therapy, cosmetic dentistry, and more, they can provide treatment options that cover a wide range of dental issues. One main advantage of general dentistry is that it is proactive dentistry. Instead of waiting until a dental problem comes up, Dr. Munoz works to reduce your risks and keep you healthy your entire life through preventative dentistry.
To efficiently provide treatment for a wide range of ages, Dr. Munoz uses state-of-the-art technology. One example is the digital X-ray tech that protects against unnecessary radiation. Compared to older film-based X-ray systems, digital systems are faster, reduce radiation exposure by up to 80%, and provide more detailed images that can be enhanced for better visualization.
It used to be hard for children — and adults — to sit still for the messy, gag-inducing, mold-making process necessary for some dental procedures. The TRIOS Scanner used in Dr. Munoz’s practice allows gag-free dental impressions, with the added benefit of being more precise and accurate.
Other technology used includes cone beam imaging and an intra-oral camera. Another advantage of all this advanced technology is that it is less invasive and reduces time spent in the chair — both benefits to the young and the old who may have some anxiety about the dentist.
Dr. Munoz and the team take the time to get to know your family and your needs and are there to answer any questions you may have. Since Dr. Munoz isn’t tied to a specific specialty, she isn’t going to try to push a specific treatment. You can trust that Dr. Munoz will look at the whole oral-health picture and come up with a treatment plan that is right for you and your family.
