At Thomas & Thomas Dental, we strive to provide a warm and inviting environment for patients of all ages. We love serving children and teens and providing them with a dental foundation that will benefit them throughout their lives. When you bring your child to Thomas & Thomas Dental, you can be sure that they will receive top-quality, gentle care.
The First Visit
We advise parents to bring their child in for their first dental shortly after their first teeth begin to emerge. By doing this, we can get an early look at the development of your child’s teeth and gums and make sure that everything looks normal. During this time, parents are encouraged to ask questions and address any concerns they have about the oral care they are providing for their child. Our experts also typically use the first visit as an opportunity to provide parents with useful information regarding teething, cavity prevention, brushing and flossing techniques, thumb sucking and more.
Kids’ Complete Checkups
One necessary component for maintaining great oral health is to receive regularly scheduled complete dental checkups. Children and teens should visit our practice at least twice per year for this very reason. We use these visits as a way to stay on top of your child’s oral health and to provide timely treatment in the event that it is ever necessary. A complete checkup is also a great time to examine the child’s mouth for any signs of cavities or tooth decay and to provide parents with important information on how to properly care for their child’s teeth.
Many dental treatments are provided for children as a way of making them less likely to require extensive procedures down the road. Such preventive treatments tend to work best when they are applied early on, so getting started as quickly as possible is very important. Some of the preventive treatments we offer for children include sealants, fluoride applications and mouth guards.
It can be very devastating for a child or teen when their teeth become damaged. A severe dental injury can ruin their appearance and cause them to feel uncomfortable. That is why our experts consider dental restorations for young patients to be particularly important. Our team works hard to provide children and teens with outstanding restorations that leave their teeth looking great and functioning better than ever before. If your child ever needs a filling, crown, bridgework or a dental inlay, you can be sure that Thomas & Thomas Dental will provide them with the best possible result.
A visit to Thomas & Thomas Dental will put your child on the right path for great oral health. Please call our office at (602) 598-0338 to schedule an appointment.
