Services For Children
Making your child’s first dentist visit a great experience!
What To Know
The dentist’s office can seem like an especially scary place for children, but it doesn’t have to. Our staff of pediatric dentists are not only specially trained to treat your child’s primary, or “baby” teeth, but are also educated in child psychology and behavior management to make your child’s visit as comprehensive and relaxed as possible.
It doesn’t matter if your child’s needs are as simple as a routine cleaning or as extensive as full mouth braces, your pediatric dentist will be able to handle their fears, questions, and of course, care with ease. Our goal here at Coral Springs Dental Center is to make your child’s dentist visits a stress free experience, for both them and you, and to establish good dental hygiene habits early on!
Why Does My Child Need To See a Dentist?
Children are recommended to see a dentist within six months of their first tooth breaking the surface of the gums and every six months thereafter. Many parents wonder why children so young should see a dentist, but there are largely preventative reasons for this.
Not only will our pediatric dentists be able to detect and help prevent any early dental problems, such as baby bottle tooth decay, but they will also be able to inform you about how to best care for your child’s changing mouth as they age.
When nearly half of all children ages two to eleven show some extent of tooth decay, it is easy to see how important creating a good relationship with the dentist and adopting oral hygiene habits is at a young age.
Our Pediatric Dentistry Services Include
For children with extreme dental phobia, we also offer the safe and monitored use of Nitrous Oxide to calm them and make visits less daunting!
