At Smile at Coconut Grove, we understand that our youngest patients need a different kind of dental care. We need to provide specialized care that helps children feel comfortable while we help them have the best start with their dental health.
In addition, children have dental needs that are different from adults. They grow in their first teeth, have a set of temporary teeth and then grow in their permanent ones. To provide proper dental care during this unique stage of life, the dental staff needs to be educated and experienced in pediatric dentistry, which we are at Smile at Coconut Grove.
Starting the Right Way
We’re passionate about helping children get off on the right foot with their dental care. By properly taking care of their oral health and teaching them how to do the same, we can create a foundation for a lifetime of improved health.
It’s important for you to bring your children to the dentist early. We can make sure everything is going well with their oral health and make any adjustments early to prevent problems later. We guide your children to help them be excited about taking care of their teeth and gums, now and always. It becomes another important part of their lives. We can also guide you in how to help your children have healthy mouths.
We recommend routine dental cleanings for several reasons. When we perform a professional cleaning, we remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. We also clean the parts of your child’s teeth that are hard to reach, such as underneath the gums.
After a cleaning, we will polish your child’s teeth so that they shine! We can also apply a fluoride treatment, if necessary, to help prevent tooth decay.
