A Lifetime Of Smiles Starts With A Good Foundation

Healthy smiles play a crucial role in your child’s growth from their early years to adulthood, though managing a busy family life can be challenging. With work, school, and daily responsibilities, finding time can often seem impossible.

We aim to make your dental visits as easy and stress-free as possible. We’re pleased to offer flexible scheduling and convenient grouped appointments to fit your busy family’s needs.

As your child grows, they’ll experience many dental milestones: their first dental check-up, losing baby teeth, their adult teeth coming in, and ultimately handling their dental appointments solo. We’re excited to be there for every new development.

Contact us today

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

Children typically start teething around 6 months. It’s advised to bring them to the dentist by the time they turn 1 or within 6 months of their first tooth emerging. If your child is showing signs of pain or discomfort, or if something doesn’t seem right, don’t hesitate to make an appointment. A child’s first dental visit can happen at any age.

Primary teeth play a critical role, comparable to adult teeth. They do more than just reserve space for future permanent teeth; they shape a child’s facial appearance, their smile, and their willingness to smile. Confidence and smiling freely in early years often carry through to later life. Dental discomfort can negatively alter how children eat, affecting their chewing abilities, food choices, and the amount they consume.

The length of your child’s first dental appointment will vary depending on their needs and their cooperation during the exam. However, it usually takes about one hour.

Just like adults, toddlers, children, and teens should visit the dentist regularly. We suggest a dental checkup and teeth cleaning every 6 months, unless advised differently. Should your child experience any tooth or jaw pain, frequently touch their jaw, or avoid hard or cold foods, please schedule an appointment earlier.

Cavities start as small holes in teeth that expand over time. They may cause pain or sensitivity, but this isn’t always the case. Prompt treatment of cavities is vital to prevent further complications or infections, even in baby teeth. The main culprits behind cavities are bacteria and dental plaque, which are aggravated by consumption of sugary or acidic foods and drinks. Certain people might also be more cavity-prone.

Your mouth is more than just teeth; it encompasses a complete system that includes your teeth, tongue, gums, cheeks, glands, ligaments, joints, and bones. If one part of this system is compromised, it affects your overall oral health. Symptoms like swollen, itchy, sore, or bleeding gums can signal the onset of more severe issues.

We know family schedules can be busy! We can arrange for your whole family to have appointments concurrently. Just give us a call, and we’ll be glad to set this up for you.
