A lifetime of excellent oral health starts at a young age. Even when your child still has their baby teeth, their relationship with the dentist can help build a foundation that will help them maintain strong, healthy teeth for years to come. At Central Family Dentistry, we offer high-quality pediatric dentistry for the youngest members of your family.
Pediatric dentistry is focused on caring for the dental health of children from an early age through their teenage years. Children require the same dental services as adults – cleanings, x-rays, and cosmetic treatments like braces and aligners. However, children also have unique needs, and we recommend certain preventative treatments like sealants and fluoride because they are more prone to developing tooth decay.
Children need dental health care as soon as they have teeth to care for. We recommend that parents bring their children for their first check-up within six months of their first tooth erupting. After the first visit, kids should see the dentist at the same frequency as adults – at least one visit every six months.
The Central Family Dentistry team is excited to show your child that there is nothing to be afraid of when they visit the dentist. We approach every treatment with care and compassion. Give us a call today to get started!
