Comprehensive Care for the Whole Family Pacific Plains Dental is happy to provide dental care for your entire family. We want to make your children’s visits a positive experience to promote a lifetime of good oral healthcare. Dr. Duede has extensive experience in pediatric dentistry, having worked in a pediatric practice for over four years. He has gained invaluable knowledge and skills that he is happy to bring to the families of Pacific Plains Dental. Your Child’s First Dental Visit We encourage you to bring your child in for their first dental visit by the time they reach their first birthday. This check-up will help your child become comfortable with our dental team and with people looking in his or her mouth. These initial visits familiarize children with the dental office environment so that it becomes a natural part of their healthcare routine. Dr. Duede will evaluate your child’s teeth and the rest of their oral environment. We will also educate you on properly caring for your child’s teeth at home now and as they grow. We will share valuable information about what to expect with their future tooth development. Pediatric Dental Care Older children will also receive regular exams and cleanings to ensure that their “baby teeth” transition into healthy adult smiles. Check-ups for our young patients are important to detect potential problems or concerning habits (such as thumb sucking) so that we can address them early on. We will perform digital dental x-rays and fluoride treatments when necessary. Digital x-rays allow us to monitor your child’s dental health, look for any potential conditions, and recommend orthodontic treatment if it becomes necessary. Regular dental care during your child’s growing years is essential to ensure excellent health and proper development. We will work with your child as they grow to teach them proper brushing and flossing techniques and share with them the importance of proper home care. Of course, we will still need assistance from conscientious parents to make sure home care is happening. Until about your child’s eighth birthday, they will need assistance with brushing and flossing. Some kids need help for longer. Many of our young patients can also benefit from dental sealants. We can provide sealants to protect your child’s back teeth, primary or permanent, from decay. To learn more about sealants and the best home-care essentials for your family, please speak to one of our team members!
