Children’s Dentistry at It’s Best
Every dentist has some experience working with young patients, and our entire team is dedicated to making patients of all ages feel calm and comfortable from the moment they arrive. However, pediatric dentists are trained in a dental specialty dedicated to caring for infants, children, and adolescents. Most pediatric dentistry specialists complete two or more years of training in addition to their doctoral education, learning the ins and outs of developing smiles from your child’s first tooth. In addition to education and training to better understand the way that smiles develop and grow, pediatric dentists also have specialized training in children’s behavioral and cognitive needs. That means they know how to keep your little ones smiling. Dr. Duron works with kids in both of our practices to ensure your child gets the best care.
Your Child’s First Experience
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association recommend that parents bring their children to the dentist within six months of their first tooth eruption, or by the age of one. This first visit, sometimes called a happy visit, is quick and easy. As you hold your child, our pediatric dentistry specialist gently examines his or her developing dental structures. If there are no signs for concern, that’s all there is to it! These visits allow us to diagnose potential concerns in their earliest stages, provide education for optimal at-home hygiene, and lets your little one get used to the sights and sounds of a dental practice.
Dental sealants may just be the fastest, easiest way to protect your child’s teeth for up to ten years. Sealants are a thin coating of clear plastic that can be applied during any checkup. As the name suggests, sealants seal out bacteria and plaque, protecting your little ones from tooth decay. With proper care, dental sealants stay in place for as much as a decade, keeping your child’s smile healthy and happy as they learn to care for it.
