Tall Ones, Short Ones, Big Ones, Small Ones
We see kids of all ages – from infants and toddlers to young children, tweens, and teens. In addition to regular exams and cleaning, we offer treatment for a wide variety of children’s dental problems such as tooth decay, bite problems, crooked teeth, and emergency care.
Baby and Early Child Visits
Baby Teeth (“Milk Teeth”)
Baby teeth start to erupt through the gums between 6 and 9 months of age. These first teeth are important & why the American Dental Association recommends parents bring children to the dentist for their first visit soon after the baby’s first tooth comes in.
Healthy Baby TeethHelp children eat and learn to speak They support development of the jaw bone and muscles Save space for the permanent teeth and guide them into place - If a baby tooth is lost too soon, permanent teeth may come in crooked
Decayed Baby TeethThey can cause pain and infections Left untreated, the infections can spread to the permanent teeth
Always Gentle Care
All our care is provided with a gentle touch. But some children become extremely nervous and anxious when they come to the dentist. Especially very young ones
