Every parent feels dedicated to their child’s well-being and happiness. According to the CDC, practices vital to the healthy development of a child include meeting their healthcare, emotional, social, and educational needs. And dentistry for kids is an important aspect of providing that healthcare during the early years.
You should take your child to see a pediatric dentist as soon as their first tooth appears. It not only helps individuals develop healthy dental routines from a young age but also prevents tooth decay, as children are especially vulnerable to cavities.
At Krengel Dental, we care about your child’s dental care as much as you do. That’s why our dentists provide high-quality care to all our patients, no matter how small.
High-quality healthcare from a young age makes such a difference to overall well-being. Pediatric dentistry prevents potential problems, such as gum disease, tooth decay, and tooth loss. It also reduces the dental anxiety so common to adults.
Starting dentist visits for kids at an early age acclimatizes children to seeing a dentist and having a dental professional place strange tools in their mouths. These dental experiences can be scary at first. But with the experts at Krengel Dental, you can rest assured that your child will adapt to our gentle dental practices in no time.
What procedures do our experienced pediatric dentists perform? We make sure your child always has a healthy smile in the following ways:
Our routine services include teeth cleanings every six months, as well as the following:
Children are prone to cavities and oral conditions if they have diseases such as diabetes or congenital heart defects. We provide screening for oral diseases and conditions to catch things early. We also apply fluoride treatments to prevent cavities and provide fillings or sealants as preventative treatment.
Diagnostic testing reveals your child’s bite pattern. Correctly-aligned teeth can prevent dental pain and teeth grinding, so this testing could catch a problem early. We may suggest braces, Invisalign, implants, and other options to correct any issues.
At Krengel Dental, we have experience with children of all ages, from babies to teenagers. Our dentists have training in how to diffuse children’s (and adults’) fear, explain procedures at an age-appropriate level, and even make dentistry fun! We also provide children with a reward after each appointment to establish a positive connection through these dentist visits.
We want to help establish your child’s healthy oral routine that will continue into their adulthood. If you have multiple children, we will schedule everyone for an appointment together to help them feel braver. No matter how wriggly, nervous, or talkative they are, we’d love to see your kids at the Krengel Dental office!
