Children's Dental Services

It is important that children receive comprehensive dental care from a young age in order to create the foundation for lifelong oral health. From the moment your child's first tooth appears, we are here to help.

When should my child visit the dentist?

We recommend that children visit the dentist around the time their first teeth begin to appear—generally between 6 months to 1 year of age. 

Typically by the time your child reaches 3 years old, they will have 10 upper and 10 lower primary teeth. It is essential these teeth are cared for in the same way you would care for your permanent, adult teeth. 

The earlier your child begins to visit the dentist, the easier they will be able to understand and become used to the routine. 

During your child's first visit we will examine their mouth for any emerging dental issues, create a treatment plan if necessary, and discuss the proper at-home care for their developing smile. 

Your child should come in for a professional dental exam and cleaning every 6 months. However, every mouth is unique! If your child has any oral health issues that require monitoring or treatment we may recommend that they visit us more often.

Dental Services for Children

When children receive routinely scheduled professional cleanings and exams, it can help them get used to caring for their smiles as they grow up.

 At Valley Dental, we provide the following preventive services for children to help create the foundations of their continuing dental health. You can work with your dentists to decide which services are suitable for your child's unique needs. 

  • Regular cleanings and examinations
  • Advice for children's dental hygiene routines
  • Protective sealants
  • Fluoride treatments

Preventive Care for Kids

Without proper care, tooth decay can begin developing as soon as your child's teeth start to erupt.

For younger patients, we start by focusing on preventing decay and cavities. In addition to professional cleanings, we will talk to our young patients about the importance of proper at-home oral hygiene care.

Brushing & Flossing

Similar to adult teeth, baby teeth need to be brushed twice each day. Start by brushing your infant's baby teeth as soon as they begin to emerge. 

You should begin flossing as soon as your child has two teeth side by side. Speak with your dentist about the tools available to help make flossing comfortable for your child.
