The First Visit
The dental care experts at Cambridge Dental Group advise parents to bring in their child for their first dental visit by the time they turn one year old. Visiting the dentist at this early age allows children to become familiar with the process early in their development. This helps to establish a foundation of trust and comfort for future visits.
Parents can use this initial visit to address any questions or concerns that they might have about their child’s oral care practices. During this time, we also provide information on teething, cavity prevention, brushing and flossing habits, thumb sucking and more.
Just like adults, children and teens should visit our practice at least twice a year for a complete dental checkup. These regularly-scheduled checkups are very important for monitoring your child’s dental development and looking out for any serious issues that might require immediate attention. Our complete dental checkups for kids and teens include a professional teeth cleaning, digital X-rays if necessary and a oral cancer screening. These visits are also used to provide parents with information on how to properly care for their child’s teeth.
Children and teens can make use of many proactive preventive treatments that go a long way towards protecting their teeth from more serious issues. Some of these preventive treatments include dental sealants, topical fluoride applications and mouth guards for kids and teens who play contact sports.
As your child’s teeth continue to grow and develop, it may become necessary for some intervention in the form of dental restorations. Not everyone goes through the same path to having beautiful, healthy teeth as an adult, but we are ready to help your child get there. Many children make use of dental crowns, bridgework, braces or aligners to help get them on track for outstanding oral health. With our help, your child can have teeth that look fantastic so that they can feel confident amongst their peers.
You never know when a dental emergency is going to occur, and Cambridge Dental Group provides emergency treatment for patients of all ages. If your child ever requires immediate dental treatment, we will be ready to help them every step of the way. Our caring team of dental health specialists will do everything possible to make your child feel comfortable and relaxed during this potentially scary event, while also providing outstanding treatment and service. Your child’s teeth are in the best possible care with Cambridge Dental Group.
Dental space maintainers are special bands that are worn over the teeth to prevent them from moving. They are most commonly used when children lose their baby molars, and having the surrounding teeth move could cause undesired effects. Spacers are very discreet, and nobody will be able to tell your child is using one unless they specifically show them. Wearing a dental spacer is a fantastic method for preventing a future need for more serious treatment, including braces or oral surgery. We recommend that parents talk to our oral care specialists when their child begins to lose their back teeth to find out if spacers could be a good option to save them trouble further down the road.
