Pediatric Dentistry

Dental care should begin for children as soon as they have teeth. Teaching your children about oral hygiene at a young age and taking them to semi-annual checkups will promote healthy tooth development. 

Of course, we know dental visits can be scary for children. Before the appointment, you can explain what dentists do. During the visit, we’ll do everything we can to help your child feel comfortable. Our experienced staff loves to make children smile. 

These early visits offer us a chance to introduce dentistry and check for any significant issues and encourage good oral hygiene. Parents must continue teaching their children good oral health at home. 

Children are also extremely susceptible to a disease called Early Childhood Caries if they don’t brush and floss their teeth regularly. Early Childhood Caries can lead to tooth decay and severe gum and tooth problems later. 

Children begin to lose their first set of teeth around the age of 6 or 7, though it’s not uncommon to lose them sooner, and we’ll make sure your child’s adult teeth are growing correctly.

Instilling excellent oral hygiene habits in your children at a young age will help them have healthy and strong teeth as an adult.
