When you held your little bundle of joy in your arms for the first time, the last thing on your mind was the kind of dental care they would need as they grew. Sure, you knew that they would eventually sprout cute little white buds that would only serve to enhance the cuteness of their grins, but you probably didn’t think about how that little bud would, one day, need to be professionally cleaned, protected from cavities, or even extracted due to a crack or infection.
Despite your lack of dental planning from the womb, your little one will, one day, need the professional and skilled services of a family dentist in Rochester.
Your child is ready for their first dentist appointment as soon as they begin to grow teeth. However, it’s recommended that you wait until at least two years of age so that they are old enough to interact with the dentist and sit unassisted in the dentist’s chair (although a parent is encouraged to be close by to calm their child). During your child’s initial visit, the dentist will do an exam to check for proper growth, teeth that haven’t broken through yet, misaligned teeth, or teeth that are missing under the gums. After the exam, most dentists will allow your child to dig through a ‘treasure chest’ filled with stickers and child safe toys.
Family dentistry doesn’t just cover small children, it also includes teenagers, adults, and seniors, – anyone and everyone in your family can be cared for with experience and skill by a dentist. Family dentistry treatments include deep cleaning and exams, teeth whitening, dental crowns and bridges, TMJ/TMD treatments, dentures, and dental implants.
Your family’s dental needs have been developing since they were born, and a caring and skilled dentist will be delighted to provide your family with quality dental care throughout all stages of their life.
