Your Child’s Smile is Important
A healthy smile at a young age has a huge part to play in your child’s future adult smile and their developing self-confidence. That’s why we offer a full range of pediatric dentistry services, including:
First Time Checkups & Teeth Cleanings - Pediatricians and dental experts recommend that children see a dentist no later than their first birthday. During this appointment, we’ll take a look at their developing smile and discuss any concerns that the parent or caregiver may have. We recommend a checkup and cleaning at least every six months.
Oral Hygiene Education with Caregivers - Little fingers aren’t always able to clean their teeth the way they need to be. We’ll show you methods to help your child avoid unwanted cavities and gum disease.
Sealants - Protective sealants can block out cavity-causing bacteria before they cause decay in back teeth. Most children have sealants placed between the ages of 6 and 12, when their permanent molars erupt. No numbing is necessary!
Space Maintainers - Premature loss of a baby tooth may not seem like a big issue, but it can alter the eruption patterns of adult teeth. Placing a temporary space maintainer in the area will encourage proper oral development and limit extensive orthodontic concerns later on.
Screenings and Referrals for Braces - Experts recommend screening all children starting at age 7 for the potential need for braces. During this assessment, we will evaluate how the developing teeth and jaws may or may not be predisposed to more significant developmental issues that can be corrected through treatment.
