Children need extra attention when it comes to their oral health. A kid's first visit to the dentist should happen shortly after their first tooth erupts. Even though baby teeth eventually fall out, healthy teeth in kids are important. They allow your child to eat and speak properly.
What Is a Kid Friendly Dentist?
Kid friendly dentists focus on dental care for kids and teens, as well as kids with special needs. These dentists can treat children's teeth, gums, and mouths. They also know how to talk to kids and teach them about developing good oral hygiene habits at a young age.
At our dental office we recommend bringing your children to our dental office when they are 3-4 years of age and before that if they develop any dental issues. Dr. Lage will examine your kid, and if they need any specialized care, he will refer the child to a pediatric dentist.
What Services Does a Kid Friendly Dentist Offer?
Our kid friendly dentist is able to treat or diagnose tooth decay, gum disease, misaligned teeth, problems with speech or swallowing, developmental disorders of the jaws and face, problems with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), thumb-sucking habits, and various other issues related to the health and development of the smile.
Our kid friendly dentists also provide a wide range of preventive dental treatments. These include cleanings, topical fluoride treatments, nutritional counseling, and more. They can also provide appropriate restorative treatment such as fillings, dental crowns, root canals, and more.
In some cases, our kid friendly dentist will even be able to treat more advanced conditions, such as sleep-disordered breathing, with oral appliance therapy. In other cases, the child will be referred to a specialist for ongoing care. Our kid friendly dentist is able to provide children with quality preventative and restorative care so that they can have healthy smiles throughout their entire childhood and well into adulthood.
