WHAT IS PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY?
Pediatric dentistry covers the range of children’s treatments and services. Baby teeth are very important in a child’s early physical, social, and psychological development; they help your baby chew, speak and smile! And though they eventually fall out, baby teeth are very important place-holders for a child’s developing and permanent adult teeth. It is also important to establish a dental home for children early on so that they do not foster dental anxiety and, most importantly, so that they learn to develop good oral habits for decades to come.
From infancy through adolescence, your child has specific care needs at every stage of their development. Be sure to take your child to a dentist you can trust to help them achieve optimal oral health.
At our family-friendly office, we offer a variety of children’s dentistry services, including:
Preventive Fluoride Treatments
Custom-made Mouth Guards
How Often Should I Take My Child to the Dentist?
We recommend that your child is seen by a dentist by their first birthday or within six months after their first tooth comes in. This will help them develop good dental hygiene habits and practice good at-home care.
