The First Dental Visit
We recommend that parents bring their child in for their first dental visit by the time they turn one-year old. Receiving a dental visit at this early age helps children to become familiar with the process early within their development. This establishes a foundation of trust and comfort that carries over to future visits.
During the initial visit, parents can use the opportunity to ask questions about their child’s oral hygiene practices. Parents are also provided information regarding teething, cavity prevention, brushing and flossing habits, thumb sucking and more.
Complete Checkups for Kids
Patients of all ages should receive a complete dental checkup at least twice per year, and that includes kids. We consider these complete dental checkups to be extremely important because they allow us to keep track of your child’s oral health and provide timely treatment if any serious issues are detected. Our complete dental checkups include a professional teeth cleaning, digital X-rays if necessary and an oral cancer screening. We also use these visits to provide parents with important information on how to properly care for their child’s teeth.
Proactive preventative treatments can go a long way in helping children avoid more serious dental issues further down the road. Some of the most popular preventive treatments offered at Admire Dental Southgate include dental sealants, fluoride applications and mouth guards for children who play contact sports.
As a child’s teeth grow and develop, dental restorations may be required in order to provide necessary corrections. The path of obtaining beautiful, healthy adult teeth is different for everyone, and our team is ready to help your child get there. If your child needs a filling, a crown or any other type of restoration, we will be there with you every step of the way.
Dental emergencies can occur at any time, and we are prepared to provide prompt treatment for patients of all ages. If your child ever requires emergency dental treatment, we will be ready to help them through every part of the process. Our compassionate team of dental health experts will do everything possible to help your child feel safe, comfortable and relaxed during this time, while going above and beyond to provide outstanding treatment. Your child’s teeth are in the be possible care with the team at Admire Dental Southgate.
Sedation Dentistry for Children
Sedation dentistry is offered to children who are undergoing more extensive dental procedures, as well as those who are extremely apprehensive about receiving dental treatment. We will carefully monitor the process to ensure that the child is kept safe throughout the entire procedure. Although most children do not require sedation when visiting our practice, we find that it can be very beneficial for children in certain situations.
Phase 1 Orthodontic Treatment
Phase 1 orthodontic treatment, or early orthodontic treatment, is designed to help children whose permanent adult teeth are just starting to emerge. By receiving orthodontic treatment at this early age, preventive measures can be taken to help the permanent teeth develop without causing major issues. Early orthodontic treatment can also improve your child’s appearance and potentially eliminate the need for braces in their teenage years.
Dental spacers consist of special bands that are worn over the teeth in order to prevent them from moving. Spacers are typically used when children lose their baby molars, and having the surrounding teeth shift positioning could cause unwanted effects.
