At Montrose Dental the dentist will be happy to educate about dental health for children. It is recommended that a child visit the dentist six months after the appearance of a first tooth or by the first birth date. This allows for early determination of tooth decay, right instruction around dental health care and habits, and information on growth and development. Long term benefits of dental health care from a young age include early detection and corrective treatment to ensure dental health development is addressed and provided.

Children’s Dentistry: We Care About Kids!

When it comes to children’s dentistry, our team works hard to relieve a child’s anxiety before any kind of procedure. We use cutting-edge techniques and deliver treatment with care and compassion. Our team inspires children of all ages to cultivate, correct dental hygiene at home, and we teach them how to do so. We like to see them at age two for their first visit and hope to enjoy their return visits as we help them keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.

At Montrose Dental we provide a broad range of dental care services and treatments tailored specifically for the oral health needs of infants, children, and adolescents. Our aim is to promote good oral hygiene habits, prevent dental issues, and provide age-appropriate dental care to support the overall health and well-being of our young patients.

Dental Checkups: Regular dental checkups are an essential component of general children’s dentistry. This typically includes a thorough examination of the teeth, gums, and oral tissues. X-rays may be taken to assess dental development and detect any issues not visible during a visual examination.

Cleaning: Professional dental cleanings are performed to remove plaque and tartar from the teeth, preventing cavities and gingivitis. Cleanings are performed by our dental hygienists who are trained to work with children.

Preventive Care: We place a strong emphasis on preventive care to help children maintain optimal oral health.

Our dentists and hygienists will provide guidance on proper nutrition and oral hygiene practices at home. This education helps instill good oral health habits from a young age. We also commonly employ dental sealants and fluoride treatments to protect your child’s teeth from decay.

Treatment of Dental Issues: Children’s dentistry involves the diagnosis and treatment of dental issues that may affect children, such as cavities, gum disease, and developmental concerns. Early intervention is key to addressing these issues before they progress.

Behavior Management: Children’s dentistry involves skill in managing the behavior of young patients during their visit. We use child-friendly language, positive reinforcement, and age-appropriate explanations to create a comfortable and positive experience.

Orthodontic Guidance: Monitoring the child’s development is an important aspect of the care we provide. This   includes early orthodontic evaluations to identify potential orthodontic issues and provide guidance on the timing of orthodontic treatment if needed.

Emergency Care:  We are equipped to handle dental emergencies involving children, such as toothaches, dental trauma, and other urgent oral health issues.

Dentistry is a critical component of a child’s overall health and well-being. By introducing your child to dental care early on, you’re setting the stage for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Regular check-ups, preventive measures, and a supportive dental team can make the journey to good oral health an enjoyable one for both you and your child.

Calming Dental Fears

We desire for all of our young patients to be reassured about their dental treatment and to relish their visits through adulthood. Our many appreciative parents have told us their children find our office a pleasant and relaxed place to visit. No matter the age or needs of your children, we can assist them in conquering their dental anxieties.

Protecting Vulnerable Teeth

Children’s teeth are more vulnerable to cavities than adults. They often do not brush appropriately, and they eat more frequently during the day. As a result, acids, bacteria, and plaque will expand rapidly. If teeth are already not as clean as they need to be, the resulting increased exposure to acid will accelerate the rate of cavity development. Through children’s dentistry, we encourage parents to oversee their children’s daily dental routine until they can clean their teeth correctly by themselves.

Preventing Child Tooth Decay – The Easy Way!

Even the most careful brushing does not encompass all the back areas and unique contours of teeth. As bacteria and plaque increase, decay will happen. Even a minuscule amount of decay will need to be removed and filled, and for larger deposits of decay, a crown. This children’s dentistry is integral to proper dental hygiene that your children will take carry with them for the rest of their life!
