You want to keep your child healthy, and that includes your child’s smile. Your dentist is your partner in safeguarding your child’s oral health. Dr. Kyle Whitson of Concord Dental Group offers a full range of dental services to take care of your child’s smile.
Your pediatric dentist is an expert at taking care of children’s smiles. You want a kind, caring dentist taking care of your child. You want Dr. Whitson.
Your dentist can perform:
- Initial and routine pediatric dental examinations, including x-rays; you should bring your child in for that all-important first visit within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth. By bringing your child in early, you help ensure easy, productive dental visits for your child in the future.
- Initial and routine pediatric teeth cleanings; these are important visits during which your child can learn the best way to take care of a healthy smile at home, including brushing and flossing.
- Fluoride treatments and prescriptions for fluoride supplements; providing adequate access to fluoride either through fluoridated water or supplements help ensure decay-resistance to keep a healthy smile.
In some cases, tooth extraction may be necessary, either because of decay or damage or as a precursor to orthodontic treatment.
