It’s important to take your child to the dentist early in life. This will enable them to feel more comfortable at the dentist office and they’ll learn good oral health habits at a young age. Good dental health is just as important as good physical health. Our dedicated pediatric dentists have spent at least two additional years in specialized dentistry for children so they’re experienced and knowledgeable about kids dental care.
Dental Associates of Florida – Central Brandon is dedicated to the needs of very young children. We want you to feel comfortable entrusting your child’s dental health to us.
What’s the Earliest Age My Child Should See a Dentist?
Your child should visit a children’s dentist as soon as he or she develops a tooth. Any tooth is subject to decay and when two teeth abut, they can develop other issues as well. Flossing a baby’s teeth may not seem easy but our children’s dentist in Central Brandon can show you how to easily and efficiently floss your baby’s teeth. Your child’s dentist can advise when it’s time for baby teeth cleaning.
Infants and children usually drink lots of milk and juice, both of which have a high sugar content. Children should never go to bed with a bottle or sippy cup for two reasons. First, both contain high sugar content that can promote cavities and decay. Second, the bottle or cup can damage the structural alignment of the jaw.
What Should My Child Expect When Visiting a Children’s Dentist?
We care about kids dental care. Your compassionate and caring dentist will check the alignment of your child’s jaw and teeth. If there’s any issue, such as cavities or decay, your child may need x-rays. The preliminary exam can be done either in the dentist’s chair or while the child is in your lap.
Some of the ways our dentistry for kids can help keep your child’s smile healthy are through the following services.
Our hygienist can clean your child’s teeth. They can also clean baby teeth, which will help maintain good oral health.
Fluoride is nature’s defense against cavities and a topical treatment can help fight decay. A fluoride treatment for children can help maintain your child’s oral health.
If your child has a cavity, our dentist can remove the damaged area and fill the tooth. We also can provide pediatric crowns.
We can perform root canals on very young children. If your child needs a root canal, we’ll perform the surgery and then construct a crown or cap to replace the tooth or teeth.
A dental sealant can help protect against decay and cavities.
If your child is active in physical contact sports, then you might consider a mouth guard that will protect against damage.
Our children’s dentist in Central Brandon can answer any questions you may have such as, “When will the baby teeth be coming in and when do they fall out?” or “What can cause a toothache in a child?”
