Bayside Implant & General Dentistry offers dentistry for children near Chesapeake, VA. As a family dentist, Dr. Brent Moses encourages parents to bring their children to the dentist early so they can become familiar with our dental office. This will help them establish a solid foundation for long term oral health. Our focus is on preventive dental care and early detection of dental diseases.
Preventing Pediatric Tooth Decay
The American Academy of Pediatrics has made children’s oral health a priority. Early childhood tooth decay (tooth cavity or dental caries) is the number one chronic disease among children. Treatment for tooth decay (a tooth filling for example) cost parents a lot of money and cause students to miss valuable time from school. For this reason, it is important to get your child to the dentist early and continue with a regular routine of visits.
Good habits start early. When it comes to children’s dental health, it is important to establish good oral health routines at home. This should include daily brushing and flossing. These combined with regular professional dental cleanings at our Chesapeake, VA dentist office will protect your child from tooth decay.
Dentistry for Children
Our staff makes every effort to ensure the comfort and safety of our young patients, helping them to develop confidence in their oral hygiene habits and to feel comfortable when they visit with us for routine care. It is not uncommon for children to experience anxiety and fear when visiting the dentist.
One of the best ways to combat this fear is to not be anxious yourself. Children learn by example and can detect the emotions and anxiety of their parents or caretakers. We will monitor the development of your child’s teeth and bite, recommending appropriate care as needed to set the stage for long term dental health.
Routine dentistry for children visits will include:
- Teeth cleaning
- Diagnostic x-rays (as needed)
- Charting of teeth and existing tooth conditions
- Dental caries (tooth decay or toot cavity) screening
- Evaluation of the gums
