Prevent Problems Before They Start
One of the main reasons that children should see a local pediatric dentist is to prevent problems before they occur. A dentist will perform a comprehensive exam and do a cleaning during your initial visit. The American Dental Association has stated that children should see a dentist once every six months.
There are several benefits that can be gained from seeing a dentist for children.
- Prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease
- Avoid costly procedures in the future
- Reduce the amount of time that one has to spend in the dentist office
- Have a healthy smile that will last a lifetime
Our local pediatric dentist will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth and gums. We will look for signs of tooth decay and gum disease and our pediatric dentist will also take x-rays in order to see what is below the surface to provide further recommendations.
Our dental hygienist will carefully clean your child’s teeth, which will remove plaque and tartar. We will also floss and use a fluoride treatment during your appointment Cleanings shouldn’t cause any pain, but if your child has any fear, then you should let the dental team know.
