Parents must encourage their children at a young age to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. The earlier children learn to care for their teeth and gums, the more likely they are to keep these habits throughout the rest of their lives. It is important for parents in Greensboro, NC to consider dentistry services for their kids to give them the foundation they need to get the most out of their dental care.
At Triad Dentistry, we provide family dentistry. We have a board certified pediatric dentist at our practice, Dr. Sona Isharani, who can provide dental care for the youngest of patients. We use a gentle touch, a compassionate attitude, and respect for all the individuals who visit our practice, while handling children with a friendly, upbeat manner.
Parents are encouraged to have their children visit a pediatric dentist as soon as their primary teeth emerge from the gums. This can happen before the first birthday. By bringing the child to the dentist for an exam, parents can rest easy knowing their children’s dental development is on track for a healthy smile. It also gives the dentist an opportunity to find anything unusual before it becomes a serious problem. Children who visit the dentist early and often are typically less apprehensive about the dental environment and more trusting of the staff. This ensures trouble-free, positive visits that encourage continued results.
We provide many services for children, including education for preventative care, sealant and fluoride applications, and monitoring the primary and permanent teeth as they break through the gums. During the initial visit, children undergo a simple examination and get to view the office to get familiar with their environment. Follow up visits may require x-rays, cleanings, and application of sealants and fluoride. Parents are also educated on how to care for their children’s teeth and gums while learning what to expect as their children’s smiles develop. Parents, dentist, and children are on the same page when it comes to their oral health care.
