Child dentistry is a vital aspect of maintaining your child’s oral hygiene, preventing serious oral health issues in the future. It’s also important to choose a kids dentist who understands exactly how intimidating the dentist’s office can be for a little one and takes steps to mitigate your child’s stress.
At Hampden Dentistry & Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on our family-friendly practice. We offer several children’s dental services to maintain your child’s oral health while ensuring the visit is as enjoyable as possible.
The Benefits of Children’s Dentistry
Children are impressionable so it is essential to familiarize them with the dentist at an early age so that they are at ease with the experience. This reduces the fear and anxiety that many people feel, even as adults when they need to visit the dentist. It is also crucial to instill the need for, and importance of, dental care at an early age.
Regular preventative dental care is a key part of optimal oral and overall health. It is also a powerful tool within parents’ control to help their children avoid serious dental issues. In addition to offering gentle dental care to children, Hampden Dentistry & Orthodontics is able to offer orthodontic care as well. Keeping a watchful eye on a child’s teeth as they emerge and develop is important in terms of assessing the need for possible orthodontic treatment in the future.
When Should Children First Visit the Dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children have their first visit to the dentist when their first tooth appears or no later than their first birthday. The dentists at Hampden Dentistry & Orthodontics are ready to meet your little ones and show them how peaceful and fun a visit to the dentist can be. We will take the time to teach and reinforce the importance of good oral hygiene in an age-appropriate manner and provide you with pointers on how to do the same at home.
Many parents believe that they don’t have to worry about their children’s teeth until their permanent teeth come in. However, your child still has to meet several oral health developmental milestones, and proper oral care is essential from the first year.
During this visit, we’ll look for early cavities and discuss your child’s developmental milestones. We’ll also provide you with information about how to begin and maintain proper oral hygiene practices as your child grows.
Preventative care is just as important for children as it is for adults. We offer several services tailored to help your child develop normally and have strong teeth and healthy gums.
Our most common preventative care procedures include:
- Age one dental visit
- Dental sealants that coat the back teeth and prevent the development of cavities
- Fluoride treatments to supplement your child’s exposure to fluoride
- Space maintainers that will hold the space open for the permanent tooth if your baby loses a baby tooth
- Mouthguards to prevent sports-related injuries such as chipped or fractured teeth
Accidents happen, which is why we also offer several services to help restore your child’s smile and ensure a happy and healthy mouth. These services include:
- Cosmetic bonding to repair broken or chipped teeth or to hide discoloration
- Fillings to prevent and repair the symptoms of tooth decay
- Crowns to repair damaged baby teeth
We strongly recommend orthodontics in children, since earlier treatments are shorter and more effective. Since children develop so quickly, a childhood orthodontic treatment can make big changes and prevent pain and suffering in the future.
Dr. Eunice Lee is our certified orthodontist who has an impressive record as both an MIT and Harvard Graduate. She believes that the science of orthodontics has many applications and can significantly improve a person’s quality of life.
