Healthy teeth are the result of proper maintenance. Early intervention, prevention and learning about home oral health care are the ways to ensure a lifelong healthy mouth. Therefore, children’s first dental appointments should be scheduled when they are between 6 and 12 months old, or as soon as teething begins, whichever comes first. This is a perfect chance for the parents to get a checkup as well.
At Kids & Family Dental in Albany, New York, our team of pediatric dentists focus on children, teenagers and their parents. The younger a patient is, the easier teeth are to manipulate. From fluoride treatments to regular exams, the sooner a problem is caught, the simpler and more affordable it is to treat.
Ideally, a pediatric dentist will be with you for two decades. From your children’s infancy to their college years, your pediatric dentist is by your side, ensuring your kid’s teeth are developing correctly. Establishing proper brushing techniques and a flossing regimen can help nurture your child’s winning smile, as can getting routine cleanings and fluoride treatments.
A great smile has been linked to higher self-esteem, better job prospects, more success, and — eventually — better romantic prospects. Smiles are what people notice about one another first, which is why Albany parents choose Kids & Family Dental ― they are committed to giving their children and themselves the best possible.
Kids & Family Dental is your local, leading pediatric and family dental team. Each member of our crew is passionate about working with kids and families. We understand that sometimes dental appointments can be scary, especially if it’s a child’s first time, and that’s why we encourage parents to accompany their children inside. A little “show and tell” with the dental instruments can help calm fears in little ones, and we always explain exactly what everyone should expect.
