Generally speaking, pediatric dental appointments are the same as adult dental appointments. We will first clean your child’s teeth and then have the dentist inspect their teeth and gum line to detect any enamel problems or gum disease. The goal of pediatric dental care is to get your child comfortable going to see the dentist.
We understand that some children can be nervous interacting with strangers. We also offer Netflix viewing during appointments for children. We will work with parents to help children relax and have a positive experience.
One of the most important aspects of pediatric dental appointments is detecting early warning signs of dental issues. Common dental problems for children include improper tooth eruptions, cavities, bite misalignment, and retained baby teeth.
Regular child dental appointments can identify and monitor these issues, so they do not become permanent and create lasting damage. We can address these issues to make sure children grow up with happy, beautiful smiles!
Dental care as a child can significantly affect oral health as an adult. The best option is to get children used to going to the dentist as early as possible. Regular children’s dentistry checkups will keep their teeth in good condition and educate them about proper oral care.
The more a child learns the importance of good oral health, the more likely they will have good dental health as an adult. Regular dental checkups and cleanings are the best way to teach children good habits that will last a lifetime.
