At All Smiles Bethesda, we understand the unique dental needs of children, and we can help them maintain a healthy mouth from the very start of their oral care journey. Ideally, a child’s first dental visit should happen by their first birthday. Your child’s first dental visit gives us a chance to see how their teeth and gums are developing and if there are any possible issues that need to be addressed. We also take the time to educate parents about how they can keep their baby’s mouth clean and healthy.
As children grow, they need to visit our office for regular checkups and cleanings. These checkups help us to keep track of their oral development and treat or avoid potential problems at the right time. We will also teach your child correct brushing and flossing techniques. Preventive treatments such as dental sealants and topical fluoride applications may be administered during your child’s regular dental checkups. Sealants help in preventing cavities by sealing out the pits and fissures on the surface of the back teeth. Fluoride applications help strengthen the enamel and make it resistant to decay.
If your child’s teeth are affected by cracks, chips, cavities, or other damage, our office offers restorative treatments such as tooth-colored fillings and crowns to help restore them in a natural-looking way.
We also offer emergency dentistry services for children in case of serious, unexpected dental needs including severe tooth pain and teeth getting knocked out due to an injury.
A child’s journey towards having a healthy mouth begins at home and is aided at a dentist’s office. Pave the way for great dental health for your children by introducing them to the quality oral care solutions offered at the office of All Smiles Bethesda.
