At Pure Smiles, our Team of Dental Providers takes great pride in offering Children’s Dentistry services for children of all ages. We follow the recommendation made by the American Dental Association for children to have an assessment by a dentist within six months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age.

We Combat Tooth Decay

Did you know that tooth decay is considered the most common chronic childhood disease and accounts for hundreds of hours of lost school time? Tooth decay is also preventable with regular visits to see your dentist. When we assess your child every six months to one year, we are able to identify and treat active areas of concern with restorative procedures. We also provide preventative dental treatments such as fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth between teeth cleanings and checkups.

In addition to diagnosing dental disease, we have the ability to monitor concerns such as proper nutritional intake due to an improper bite, developmental concerns related to speech development, offer habit control intervention for children with thumb sucking habits and many other dental-related concerns that may impact the health of the teeth and gums. We are also able to identify potential concerns involving how the permanent teeth are erupting and plan for future orthodontic intervention.

Educating your child on the importance of proper brushing, flossing, and how eating a healthy diet impacts their oral health is a priority for us. Our goal to help both you and your child maintain healthy teeth and gums that will last them a lifetime!
