Dentistry for Children
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR CHILD NEEDS BRACES?
Establish your child's dental home with highly trained child friendly staff
A child's first visit to the dentist should be enjoyable. Children are not born with a natural fear of the dentist, but they can fear the unknown. Our office makes a special effort to use pleasant, non-frightening, simple words to describe each treatment. We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at our office.
Children should visit the dentist by their first birthday. It is important that your child's newly-erupted teeth (erupting at six and 12 months of age) receive proper dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits right from the beginning.
Your child should visit the dentist every six months for regular dental cleanings and checkups. We recommend fluoride treatments twice a year along with cleanings to keep teeth their strongest. Tooth sealants are also recommended because they "seal" the deep grooves in your child's teeth, preventing decay from forming in these hard-to-reach areas. Sealants last for several years, but will be monitored at your child's regular checkups.
Incorrectly grown teeth are now fixable. No more children teasing or bullying in school because of unevenly grown teeth. Correcting your child’s smile will promote self-confidence later in life. We employ the latest materials and techniques for a perfect result after orthodontics treatment.
Call Albany Dental today, and schedule your children for their regular and check up, as well as an evaluation to see if orthodontic treatment would be necessary and beneficial to them.
