In order to ensure a lifetime of oral health, it is vital that you begin your child’s dental care when their smiles are developing. Our treatments are gentle and fun, and we always create a positive environment for your child so they remember us in a good light. We provide care for children of all ages, from advice regarding your baby’s teeth to regular checkups for cleanings, fluoride, sealants, and restorative care.
Your Child’s First Visit
Typically, we recommend that children begin seeing the dentist around two years of age. Our compassionate team can provide advice on how to deal with teething and ensure that teeth develop properly. We have established a reputation for creating a comfortable and kid-friendly environment equipped with games and toys to entertain children.
Instill Proper Oral Hygiene Habits
You should take an active role helping your child practice consistent oral hygiene habits. Regular visits to our office for preventive care can help with this goal. We teach children how to brush their teeth with a soft bristled brush and a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. The dentist can also determine the proper time to begin flossing.
Common Pediatric Treatments
Your child should become familiar with consistent dental cleanings and examinations to ensure long-lasting oral health. Your child’s first visit for an exam will consist of x-rays and other digital imaging to evaluate the health of their teeth, gums, and bone structure. We also look for any possible concerns with oral development, such as misalignment and bite issues that will require orthodontic correction. After an examination of the general condition of your child’s teeth, we perform a gentle cleaning using kid-friendly flavored toothpaste and quieter hand devices.
