There are two important reasons why you should bring your child to our 04401 kids dentist. First of all, as specialists in pediatric dentistry, you can count on us to have all of the particular information that is needed for kids dental care. Many adult dental practices will also see children, but we at Bangor Children Dentistry focus on kids and kids only. The unique circumstance and challenges involved, such as the transition from losing primary (baby) teeth to the eruption of permanent (adult) teeth, and getting a head start on straighter teeth with interceptive orthodontics, are best handled by a dentist who works with kids day in and day out. Second, our office has been tailored to be welcoming and comfortable for children, ensuring that the early experiences your child has with dentistry are positive ones, which will set the stage for a lifetime of visits without undue anxiety.
The very first appointment for your child will be focused on getting acquainted with our office, equipment, staff, and our 04401 kids dentist. The more she or he feels at ease and familiar, the more likely that the session will go well. As part of an initial dental exam, x-rays will be taken to find any cavities that should be filled. A visual inspection of your child’s teeth and gums will be done to detect any concerns to address. In addition, his or her occlusion (bite) will be checked to see if it is properly aligned. And a teeth cleaning serves to remove any plaque, tartar, and food remnants that are between your child’s teeth or hidden in gum pockets. Our focus is on prevention, and few things are more effective than a teeth cleaning in the avoidance of tooth decay and gum disease. Fluoride treatments can also be an excellent method for keeping your child’s teeth strong and healthy.
Our 04401 kids dentist will keep you informed about your child’s progress and provide helpful advice on vital things like nutrition and how it contributes to dental well-being, and how to deal with teething. You should always feel free to ask any questions that you have. Our goal is to be your partner in helping your child to achieve optimal dental health.
