Pediatric Dentistry Q & A
What can a pediatric dentist do for your child?
Your family’s ages might range from young to old, but don’t worry: Dr. Attipoe knows how to care for everyone’s dental health concerns.
To keep your child’s teeth and gums healthy from day one, Amazing Grace Family Dentistry offers a wide variety of pediatric services to fit your family’s needs:
Standard Dental Cleaning
Once you notice your child’s first tooth growing in, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a dentist who specializes in pediatric dentistry. Routine checkups and cleanings are essential in ensuring that your child’s teeth stay in the best possible shape from birth through their teens.
Sealants are a great way to protect your child’s molars — which emerge around 5-7 years of age — from cavities and tooth decay during the chewing process. Dr. Attipoe knows kids have a hard time cleaning the back of their molars, which is why he recommends discussing sealants early on to provide your child with maximum tooth protection.
Mouth guards are necessary to protect your child against structural damage to the cheeks, mouth, and jaw, especially if they play sports like:
While an over-the-counter mouth guard may protect your child’s mouth from contact, a custom-fitting guard feels far more comfortable for them and allows for easy breathing.
When it’s time to discuss orthodontics, like braces, Dr. Attipoe can work with you and your child to determine the best option for your family. Crooked teeth become more susceptible to tooth decay and plaque over time, so it’s important to schedule an appointment as soon as possible if you think your child may need braces.
Why is it important for kids to see a dentist?
If you want your children to have healthy dental care for their entire lives, bring them to the dentist as soon as possible. Every child should get a dental checkup by age one, or as soon as their first tooth comes in, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dental Association.
Optimal oral health for your children starts with you. To get them started, take your children to see Dr. Attipoe. He works hard to ensure your child feels comfortable and safe in a friendly atmosphere.
Dr. Attipoe’s warm chairside manner helps your child relax, creating an enjoyable experience that encourages good dental health as they grow.
