Dentistry for Kids

With the professionals at The Smile Suite at Towne Square, we go above and beyond to provide a warm and comfortable environment specifically catered toward children. This will help provide them with the necessary confidence to feeling safe and secure as they receive dental care.

The Focus of Pediatric Dentistry

Specializing in pediatric dentistry requires the dentist to concentrate on the dental care of children up and into adolescence. In order to become a specialist, a dentist is required to attend at least two additional years of specialized training following dental school. These additional years include training within a hospital so that they get the patient experience of those with severe dental emergencies and who will require the need for oral surgery by a pediatric oral surgeon. Having a pediatric dentist for your child allows them to work side by side with your family dentist and pediatrician so that the specialized care can be obtained as needed.

The Importance of Children Needing to Go to the Dentist

Having an oral health care plan for your children early on is always a good idea. This is especially true when it comes to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Having your child see the dentist allows them to receive their first cleaning so that their gums remain healthy, and any plaque buildup is removed to prevent early cavities and decay to their baby teeth. The pediatric dentist is also able to advise parents on proper methods the child should use while brushing and flossing.

Timeframe for Children Going to the Dentist

The age that a child should have their first dental exam should be by the time they turn one year old. As they have their exam, our pediatric dentist will examine their gums, mouth, and teeth, to assess their oral health. We will look for any indication of tooth decay or gum disease. After the exam, a cleaning will take place to remove any bacteria and plaque that may be present along the gumline and teeth.

Although some children may be afraid of the dentist, it is important for them to start seeing us early on. We provide a kind, caring, colorful, and relaxed environment for children to come in and see us. We want their experience with us to be a positive one so they learn the important of oral health care from a young age.

What Takes Place During a Pediatric Dental Appointment?

During your child's dental appointment, the pediatric dentist will assist in developing a plan specifically based on the child's needs. After getting a detailed history, the child will have X-rays obtained, a dental cleaning, and a full oral evaluation by our fully trained pediatric dentist. As the parent, you will be able to inquire about issues surrounding teething, how sucking on thumbs affects the teeth, and any other questions you may have.
