Can I Find A Good Children’s Dentist Near Me?
If you’re searching the internet for a good pediatric dentist, we think you’ve found what you’re looking for in our office. Our dental office provides dental services for young children, and patients of every age. Pediatric dentists have completed a minimum of two additional years of dental training.
All of our caring and dedicated dentists want to ensure that your child has a positive experience in our office. This will encourage them to develop lifelong good oral health habits.
When Should My Child Have His or Her First Dental Visit?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children begin visiting the dentist when they develop a tooth. Even one tooth can develop a cavity and two teeth that abut should be flossed. Your pediatric dentist can show you how to floss your baby’s teeth.
Babies and toddlers are prone to develop a problem called baby bottle tooth decay, which stems from the high sugar content of the milk and juices they consume, usually from a bottle or sippy cup. Children should never go to bed with a bottle or a sippy cup. This can lead to the formation of cavities and possible misalignment of the jaw or teeth.
What Should I Expect When Visiting a Children’s Dentist in Lakeland with My Child?
When you and your child visit our kid’s dentist in Lakeland, the dentist will first examine your child’s teeth and jaw to see if there are any issues that need to be addressed. If the dentist finds anything slightly wrong, your child may need an x-ray, although most children don’t.
Our kids dental care program is comprehensive and includes the following:
Kids teeth cleaning
Good dentistry for kids starts with regular cleanings and we encourage our first-time clients to schedule a cleaning visit for their child.
If your child has a cavity, our kid’s dentist can remove the damaged area and fill the tooth.
If your child needs a root canal, we can help him or her. We have successfully performed root canals on very young children.
Caps and crowns
If your child needs a cap or crown, we can fabricate one specifically tailored to your child’s dental impression.
We can apply either a fluoride treatment or a thin layer of plastic sealant that will prohibit food particles from becoming trapped between teeth and thereby causing cavities.
If your child grinds his or her teeth at night, or is engaged in sports involving physical contact, a mouthguard can help prevent damage and injury. Ask your children’s dentist in Lakeland about a mouthguard for your child.
If you have questions about baby teeth coming in, baby teeth falling out, or the causes of toothache in your child, be sure to ask your childrens dentist. We want to ensure that you and your child have a positive experience in our office and that we keep you as a lifelong client.
