Your Child’s First Visit

Your child’s first dental visit can be an anxious time for both parents and children. However, it is essential to remember that children’s dentists are friendly and highly trained providers to help meet children’s dental needs. Here are a few practices and tips for making your child’s first pediatric dentistry visit a positive dental experience.

  • Talk to your child about the dentist ahead of time. Let them know that the dentist will look at their teeth and gums and teach them how to brush and floss correctly.
  • Don’t force treatment. Instead, explain that the appointment will not take long and that they will get a prize afterward if they are brave!
  • Schedule an appointment with our dental team for a time when your child is feeling well-rested and relaxed.

Preventative and Diagnostic Care

Preventative and diagnostic care can help keep your child’s teeth healthy for a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups are essential for the early diagnosis of any problems. We offer comprehensive care to kids ages at our dental practice. We will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your child’s needs. We also offer sedation dentistry for children to increase comfort.

Restorative Treatment

Did you know that dental problems are the most common health problem among children? According to the CDC, dental decay is the most preventable childhood disease. Early detection and treatment of dental problems are essential to ensure a healthy smile for life. Our pediatric dentists offer restorative treatments and specialized procedures to restore their teeth to their natural function and appearance.

Early Orthodontic Evaluations

Many children can benefit from an orthodontic evaluation at an early age from orthodontic specialists, not a general dentist. A thorough assessment is a great way to identify any potential teeth and jaw alignment problems. In many cases, orthodontic issues can be detected and fixed when the child is still young with orthodontic services. This means that treatment will not be as extensive or lengthy, and it can also prevent more severe issues from developing down the road.

Early intervention is often the best way to go, so do not hesitate to seek help if you think there could be something wrong. 

Building a Foundation For Healthy Oral Habits for Life

Dental hygiene is essential at all ages, but it is crucial to start children off on the right foot for oral care. We encourage parents to teach their children how to properly brush and floss their teeth to help them maintain healthy smiles for life.

Here are a few great tips for building a foundation for healthy oral habits in your little ones.

  • Make sure they get in the habit of brushing their teeth twice daily
  • Encourage them to floss once a day
  • Make regular dental check-ups a priority
  • Avoid sugary foods and drinks to prevent cavities
