Do you treat children?
The youngest members of your family are important to us, and we welcome patients of all ages to our Miami, FL, dental office.
In most cases, your child should have their first visit by the age of three. At three years old, your little one is old enough to cooperate and we can provide an exam and a professional dental cleaning as well as discuss home care habits with you.
Early dental appointments benefit your child in two ways:
First, we can familiarize your child with the dental office and help them feel comfortable for their routine appointments. We will speak to them in a way they can understand and avoid frightening terms such as needle, poke, or hurt. Our team will make their dental appointment fun and interactive so that they can participate in their oral health.
Second, by encouraging dental appointments at a young age, we can detect and treat any oral conditions that develop during their earliest stages when they are less invasive and easier to treat. This helps your little one stay healthy from the start and can create a foundation for a lifetime of good oral health.
As your child grows, we will implement other preventive dentistry such as fluoride treatments, sealants, and digital x-rays.
