At Lincoln Dental Associates we love seeing patients of all ages. It is never too early to start instilling good oral hygiene habits in our children. Children who start early with healthy teeth and gums and proper oral hygiene will have a brilliant, healthy smile that will last a lifetime. We recommend children come into our office for their first dental check-up and cleaning around 2 years of age. After this initial check-up and cleaning, we encourage parents to bring their children in for routine check-ups every six months.
Regardless of your child’s age, if you see something that doesn’t look right or if your child complains of pain, we would be more than happy to see them and give them the best treatment for their diagnosis.
It is very important for your child to have regular dental checkups starting at a young age to help monitor the growth and development of their teeth and jaws. Additionally, small problems with the teeth or behaviors can be identified and diagnosed in the beginning stages, whereby allowing for easier, quicker and more effective treatment.
At Lincoln Dental Associates, we strive to give our patients, both young and old a pleasant, positive dental experience. We know that some children (and adults) have a fear of the dentist which will have a negative impact on their long-term dental care. With the use of sedation dentistry, a friendly staff, a welcoming office environment and top-notch technology and equipment to make your child’s dental procedure quick and comfortable, Lincoln Dental Associates can make going to the dentist more enjoyable for the whole family.
Contact us today to schedule an appointment for your child so he or she can get on the right track of great oral health.
