Children should enjoy visiting the dentist!
We believe it's important for our young patients to have positive early dental experiences so they're more likely to create and maintain healthy dental habits to last throughout their life.
We make it our mission to help children feel comfortable and secure at our dental office. Our friendly team will welcome you and your child, and our reception area has books and toys to keep kids busy while they wait for their appointment.
We're Here for Your Kids
When it's time for your child's appointment, the hygienist and dentist will explain the process and discuss their oral health in language that is easy to understand. They will take the time to answer any questions your child may have and ensure they are comfortable.
We always strive to work at your child's pace and will take breaks if needed.
Every child grows 20 primary teeth, usually by the age of 3. These teeth are gradually replaced by the age of 12 with a full set of 28 permanent teeth, and later on, four molars called wisdom teeth. We'll help keep all of your child's teeth healthy as they develop and grow.
Services for Children
Oakmount Dental offers the following treatment options for children:
- Cleanings & Checkups
Children should have regular dental checkups and cleanings, just like adults. To help prevent issues from developing, children should see the dentist every six months. This also helps to catch any problems that may have developed and treat them early.
- Monitoring Baby Teeth
Primary (baby) teeth help children to chew and eat properly, as well as aid in speech. They are important to healthy development, and also guide permanent adult teeth when they erupt.
A child should have their first dental visit by the time they celebrate their first birthday.
Baby teeth should be protected until they are ready to fall out naturally and be replaced with adult teeth. Visiting the dentist regularly can help preserve the health of your child's primary teeth.
- Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride is a common dental treatment used to strengthen enamel. This helps prevent cavities and tooth decay. At Oakmount Dental, we provide fluoride treatment for children to help protect their teeth and keep them strong. Learn More
- Dental Fillings
Even with careful brushing and flossing, kids can sometimes develop cavities. Our goal is to properly preserve and care for a tooth's health, so we will look after a child's cavity in the same way we would for an adult.
Your child's dentist will remove the decayed material from their baby tooth and fill it to prevent further decay. Learn More
- Dental Sealants
To further prevent cavities, we can apply a coating of dental sealant to the molars and premolars. These teeth have deep fissures that make proper brushing more difficult for children. Using sealants, we can cover the tooth so that plaque and bacteria aren't able to build up inside them.
- Early Orthodontic Treatment
Your dentist will evaluate and monitor your child's growing teeth at every visit. If signs of misalignment begin to develop, the dentist may be able to intervene early enough to prevent it from getting worse. This could potentially reduce the need for more invasive orthodontic treatment when your child is older.
- Oral Hygiene Guidance
Our hygienist or dentist will review proper dental care techniques with your child at every visit, including brushing and flossing instructions. This ensures that your child's teeth are being cleaned well at home too.
