Associated Dentists has been treating children and families since 1962. We know how to make your child comfortable at the dentist. Your Child's Dental Care Children Ages 1 - 3 We enjoy seeing children of all ages beginning after age 1. Generally, the under 3 year old visit is very brief. We'll evaluate growth and tooth development, check for decay, and evaluate the soft tissues of the mouth. Your child's dentist will also review fluoride, oral hygiene, and diet. This visit is as much for the parent as it is for the child. Children Ages 3+ A regular teeth cleaning is attempted around 3 or 4 years old. These children are scheduled with one of our dental hygienists to remove any plaque and calculus (tartar) that has accumulated on the teeth. Oral hygiene is always reviewed and we take time to educate our young patients on proper brushing and flossing habits. We'll also discuss healthy food and drink choices. A fluoride application is normally applied towards the end of the visit. Pre-Teens And Teenagers At your teenager's cleaning appointments we will put a lot of emphasis on oral hygiene. We try to motivate teens to focus on plaque removal and flossing. We'll also have a discussion about food and drinks that are harmful to the teeth, such as soda pop, candy, and other acidic or sugary drinks/foods. A fluoride application is also done at these visits. Tooth Decay In Children Under 5 Is On The Rise Unfortunately, our children are not only the most vulnerable to tooth decay, but they are normally the most difficult patients to treat. Early prevention and proper diet are the best proactive ways to reduce tooth decay in children.
