Family Dentist Kalamazoo, MI

Kalamazoo family dentist, Dr. Stephanie Busch-Abbate, values and cares for the dental needs of the whole family.

Have you ever wondered what family dentistry is exactly? Well, simply put, it addresses most if not all of the common dental concerns of families, including children, their adult parents and even the parents of those adult parents (seniors). The goal is to ensure that the whole household has and maintains clean, healthy teeth and gums.

It's ideal for a parent to go to the same office as his child not just for matters of convenience, but also to help children conquer dental fears before it becomes a problem later on in life. A parent can teach Junior how to be brave while sitting in the dentist’s chair.

Kalamazoo teeth whitening and family dentist Dr. Stephanie Busch-Abbate of Gentle Dentistry has designed her practice to meet all of these needs and more for families. Her services include cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, restore implants and dentures for senior citizens.

One of the main concerns of family dentists like Dr. Busch-Abbate is gum disease. Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums caused by bad bacteria that can cause tooth loss, or even certain health problems like heart disease if it goes untreated. In some cases this problem runs in families.

One of the best pieces of advice for families to keep in mind is the importance of both brushing and flossing daily. When you fail to properly remove food from between the teeth, it can turn into the bacteria that cause gum disease.
