A lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles begins with your child’s first checkup with our pediatric dentist in Post. At Post Family Dentistry, we emphasize the importance of preventive care, as the best way to help to keep your child’s smile cavity-free from the start. At every checkup, we help your child feel at ease, making our office a fun place for every member of your family to visit.
Studies show that children across the United States lose 51 hours of school each year due to dental disease. By scheduling a back-to-school checkup for your child with our pediatric dentist in Post, you can both ensure they maintain excellent oral health as well as prevent any dental-related setbacks during the school year. Starting with your child’s first visit to our office, our dentist will track the growth of development of the teeth and jaws, and check for the earliest signs of tooth decay or other oral health problems. For babies, we teach parents how to clean and care for new emerging teeth, reduce the discomfort of teething, and discuss how to prevent early pediatric dental disease, such as baby bottle tooth decay. As your child gets older, we’ll teach them more about the importance and responsibility of brushing, flossing and making the right nutritional choices for healthy teeth and gums. For more protections against tooth decay, we provide periodic fluoride treatments, which strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities. Once your child’s permanent molars erupt, we recommend dental sealants, which are protective coatings applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth to shield the teeth from decay-causing plaque and debris. At every visit, we compassionately address any anxiety or worry your child may be experiencing.
Preventive care with our pediatric dentist in Post helps your child spend less time in the dentist’s chair and more time learning and having fun. At Post Family Dentistry, we provide the personalized, compassionate care your child deserves. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
