One of the biggest benefits of choosing a Woodbury dentist who offers family dentistry is that it’s a convenient time saver. You don’t need to run the children to one dentist, parents to another, and seek yet another specialist to care for older family members. Everyone in the family can get a regular dental checkup at the same time.
It’s also a health advantage when one dentist treats every member of an extended family because some dental problems tend to be inherited. As Dr. Brayman encounters these conditions in adults, she can take extra steps to help prevent them from occurring in children.
With our warm and welcoming environment as well as being conveniently located close to home for many of our patients in Woodbury, Syosset, Oyster Bay, Huntington, Melville, or even Plainview, we hope to see you in our dental clinic and show you why so many people feel that Kate Brayman DDS is the best choice for their family’s dental needs.
Gum disease: Up to 30% of the population may inherit a tendency to develop gum disease. Teaching dental care to children and screening for gum disease at checkups will help prevent it from developing.
Misaligned teeth: Genetics has a role in determining the size of your jaw, which influences whether your teeth are crowded, have gaps, or don’t fit properly when you bite down. Most teens are good candidates for Invisalign aligners, which are available through Dr. Kate Brayman.
Dr. Brayman and her staff understand how important it is to establish good dental habits in young children while preventing excessive dental anxiety or phobia. We can make the experience easier by having your child come in before an appointment to meet Dr. Brayman, tour the office, experience our massage dental chairs, and hear the sounds of tools.
Children should go to the dentist by age 1 or within 6 months after they have their first tooth, so if they’re a regular patients, we’ll be able to build a relationship over the years. In addition to routine dental check-ups and cleanings, digital X-rays that lower exposure to radiation, fluoride treatments or sealants, and repairing cavities, we will help teach your child about proper brushing and flossing, and the importance of avoiding sugar and acidic products.
Adults face unique dental problems as they age, but Dr. Brayman is prepared to help them. Two common issues that arise include:
Dry mouth: About 30% of adults older than 65 years develop dry mouth, which makes it more likely they’ll develop cavities. A dry mouth is often caused by medicines because it’s a side effect of more than 500 medications.
Root caries: Older adults are more likely to have recessed gums, which puts them at a higher risk for root caries.
Our advanced technology can enhance diagnostic accuracy and treatment precision – leading to better patient outcomes, reduced discomfort, and better communication.
We aim to foster trust with you as our patient, which enables you to actively participate in your overall dental health journey.
