We’re dedicated to providing a welcoming environment where everyone feels comfortable and safe while receiving dental treatment – including our youngest patients.
Here at Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we recommend bringing your child in for their first appointment when their first tooth comes through, or by the time they turn one – whichever occurs first.
We believe in preventive dentistry first and foremost, and that preventive dental care starts from a young age. The younger your child is when we first see them, the greater chance we have of preventing any future dental problems and the more likely they are to have a happy and healthy smile.
We also think starting children young with visits to the dentist is a good idea because it can help prevent any phobias, fears, or anxieties around the dentist from developing.
Our range of preventive treatments for children includes fluoride treatments, fissure sealants, and instructions on how best to care for their teeth at home.
The easiest and best way of helping maintain the good oral health of your children’s teeth is to simply encourage them to brush their teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Setting an example by doing the same yourself will also help, and of course, limiting their intake of sugar can help reduce the chances of tooth decay.
