When your child reaches the age of three, it’s time for the first dental visit! (Although please call any time you feel there’s a problem with your child’s smile.) Our team loves working with children and teaching them how to care for their teeth. We also provide tips to make home care hassle-free.
At your child’s checkup, the doctor assesses tooth development, evaluates bite alignment, and checks for decay. To prevent cavities, we apply dental sealants or a fluoride treatment. We take X-rays to check the health of supporting structures, and depending on your child’s age, assess the development of permanent teeth forming below the gum line. If the doctor anticipates that your child may have a problem with permanent teeth erupting into proper position, he may recommend orthodontic treatment. We offer a full line of orthodontic solutions for all ages.
It’s important to set kids on the right path for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Our children’s dentistry team teaches kids the right way to care for teeth and – most importantly – we make it fun!
