At Newman Dental, we understand how important it is for children to feel comfortable when they walk through the door. That’s why we strive to create an inviting atmosphere and provide genuine service with a smile. We also want to ensure they have access to the best preventive care available so they can continue enjoying their healthy, beautiful smiles for many years. Our goals are to exceed expectations while helping parents and children develop a lifelong relationship with us – our Tucson dental facility is where quality dental care always comes first.
Teaching Children the Value of Good Dental Health
Good dental health care should begin as early as possible, so we love seeing young patients visit us to start their journeys! At our office, we’re exceptionally experienced in helping children learn the value of dental hygiene. We’re also highly skilled at designing and performing general and other treatments to suit children’s unique oral health needs and concerns.
Children’s Dentistry in Tucson, AZ – Guiding Healthy Smile Development
Like adults, children need consistent care to keep their smiles healthy, including daily brushing and flossing at home. By the age of three, children should also begin attending regular dental exams and cleaning appointments, usually as often as adults (at least once every six months). However, unlike with adults, a child’s routine exam includes specific inspections of their oral health development, including the health and development of the permanent teeth that form underneath their baby ones. Every visit also includes fun lessons on how children can improve their hygiene routines at home!
Extra-Attention for Preventive Care
Because children are less experienced in dental hygiene than adults are, they may be more prone to missing spots of plaque on their teeth when they brush and floss. We have preventative measures that can help, including the following.
A fluoride treatment is a great way to protect your child’s teeth from cavities and strengthen enamel! Fluoride can work wonders, so you should ensure your child stays up-to-date on routine treatments. Visiting us every six months will help ensure your child always receives the necessary treatment their teeth need.
Dental sealants can be an essential part of a healthy smile. Dental sealants are thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth. This coating acts like a shield for the teeth, creating extra protection against cavities by sealing off crevices where food and bacteria can get stuck. Sealants are especially beneficial for children, and adults can benefit too! Ask us if dental sealants could be the right choice for you or your family – we’ll be happy to help keep those smiles healthy!
Expert Restoration when Trouble Arises
When children develop a problem, such as tooth decay, you must address the problem as soon as possible. For example, unlike treating an adult cavity, the health, and position of the tooth and its permanent replacement underneath must also be taken into account. Baby teeth are smaller and less resilient than permanent teeth, and placing a filling in one is a delicate process. It’s also a necessary one, for if the decay is ignored, it can not only cause the tooth to fall out prematurely but can also spread to the underlying permanent tooth structure. You can trust us to handle this and any other restorative needs your child may have with the utmost care and attention.
