Pediatric Dentistry

It is an honor to provide dental care to the wonderful children of our community. We provide a comfortable environment that is free from pressure and is focused on patient comfort. The first dental visit is suggested by the American Dental Association at one year(s) old. At this time, it is important to introduce tooth brushing and minimizing toothpaste usage. In addition, we will evaluate dietary habits and encourage sippy cups to be used with water only. Your dentist at ThoroughDent Smiles will take a look at the child and look for any abnormal growth patterns or early oral pathology. Of course, our office does not pursue any pediatric treatment or exams without both parent and patient consent. It is imperative during these developmental stages to gain trust from our pediatric patients and encourage them to see the value of having clean, pain-free teeth. Our office suggests discontinuing thumb sucking or any non-nutritive oral habits by the age of three to avoid skeletal development deficiencies. Also, it is important that parents stay involved in tooth brushing and oral hygiene regimens until the eighth birthday. Lack of guidance prior to the eighth birthday may lead to early childhood caries.
