Do you treat children?
As your children’s dentist in Fayetteville, AR, we most certainly treat the young! Good oral hygiene habits start at an early age, so it’s a good idea to get your kids accustomed to visiting the dentist from an early age.
We recommend children come in as soon as their first tooth erupts. We find that is a good time to start teaching them about good oral care. When your child comes in to the dentist for the first time, we are primarily looking to make sure he or she is comfortable in the dental chair. The sights and sounds of a dentist office can be intimidating at first, so it’s important that children feel comfortable around them from a very early age. We will also be on alert for any signs of common dental conditions, including cavities—and yes, we look for cavities in baby teeth.
We work hard to stay ahead of dental problem with regular examinations and cleanings, but when dental issues do arise, we like to treat them as early as possible. When dental issues are addressed early, treatment is almost always less expensive—and less painful! Visit a children’s dentist in Fayetteville, AR, Northwest Arkansas Family Dental!
