Pediatric Dental Check-Ups & Cleanings
We focus on preventive pediatric dental care to help each child grow a healthy smile that will last a lifetime.
Routine visits to the dentist are just as important for children as they are for adults, if not more so.
Like adults, it’s important that your child has a dental check-up and cleaning every six months.
Our goal is to make going to the dentist a positive experience for your children so they develop lasting oral hygiene habits, look forward to going to routine dental checkups, and prevent the onset of potential dental issues, such as cavities and gum disease.
Our staff is highly trained and we work with children of all ages. We strive to make every visit to our Cockeysville dental office as educational and enjoyable as possible for both the child and the parent.
At What Age Should My Child See a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentistry is very important for children to ensure good health and hygiene habits early on.
The ideal time for your child’s first visit to our dental office is around age 2+.
The first pediatric dental visit allows us to evaluate your child’s new teeth, help stop or prevent any harmful habits, and teach proper oral care techniques.
What to Expect during a Pediatric Dental Exam at Our Cockeysville Office
It’s important that our young patients and their parents fully understand what is being done during a pediatric dental checkup and why.
We work hard to address all parent concerns about your child’s dental health. We take the time to explain your child’s unique oral health situation and what type of treatment is recommended to keep their beautiful smiles bright and healthy.
During each pediatric exam we will:
- Review your child’s health history
- Take any necessary images
- Clean your child’s teeth
- Conduct a thorough exam of your child’s teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue for any signs of tooth decay or any other signs of potential dental issues
- Teach your child age-appropriate oral hygiene habits they should be following at home to keep their teeth strong and their gums healthy
Our dental hygienist are trained to gently, but effectively remove any plaque or tartar buildup on your child’s teeth.
