At Beffa Dental, we see children of all ages. Usually we like to have their first dental appointment around age three. Not only to check for any major problems, but to get them used to and comfortable with the dentist, the office, and the staff. A first visit usually involves a ride in the dental chair, an introduction to the different sights and sounds of the office, and a simple teeth cleaning if possible. We like to keep visits with children short and stress free, but it is also important to make sure the child and the parents know the importance of proper diet and home care, and the complications that can arise due to poor at home habits.
All children under the age of 18 receive topical fluoride treatment with each cleaning to help promote healthy, strong teeth. Also, when permanent teeth begin to erupt, sealants are placed to protect them against acids and decay-causing bacteria.
