Your little one needs to see a children’s dentist in Tallahassee a lot sooner than you might think; usually around the age of one, or within six months of their first tooth coming in. At this initial visit, one of our trusted dentists will make sure your baby’s mouth is in excellent health. After the first visit, you should bring your child in every six months for a checkup and professional cleaning to get their teeth shiny and healthy.
Many adults who are scared of the dentist cite early childhood experience at the dental office as the reason for their anxiety. Offices that appear cold and clinical can instill fear in children. That’s why we make sure our office is as kid friendly as can be. This can drastically reduce the risk of your child growing up with a dental fear. As a result, they’re going to be more excited about getting proper dental care and have better oral health as an adult.
The most common services that are performed at your child’s checkup are a routine cleaning and exam. One of our dentists will thoroughly look over your kid’s mouth to make sure everything is going swimmingly. Then one of our hygienists will make your child’s teeth shine.
Your child may also require sealants and cavity fillings. Dental sealants are plastic-like coatings that are painted onto the grooves of your child’s back teeth to seal out cavity-causing bacteria. Fillings are used to treat cavities, which little kids are often prone to, especially if they’ve recently started brushing their own teeth. Don’t worry, we’ll make the whole experience a breeze for them.
Finally, it’s important that your children’s dentist in Tallahassee offers emergency dentistry services. Kids have dental emergencies all the time, whether it’s a toothache or breaking or knocking out a tooth during sports practice. You want to be able to call your dentist at any time and trust that your child will be in good hands.
