NK Family Dental welcomes patients of all ages, and our team takes great pride in providing a warm and inviting environment for children and teens. It is very important to provide young people with positive dental foundations, and our practice is committed to making this possible. When you bring your child to NK Family Dental, you can be sure that they are receiving the best possible treatment and service.
The First Visit
It is recommended that children receive their first dental visit shortly after their initial teeth begin emerging. This will provide us with an early look at your child’s teeth and gums, allowing us to make sure that everything is developing properly. During this visit, parents are free to ask questions and address any concerns. We also like to use this opportunity to provide parents with important information about teething, cavity prevention, brushing and flossing techniques, thumb sucking and more.
Kids’ Complete Checkups
Having your child visit NK Family Dental at least twice per year for complete dental checkups will allow our team to keep track of your child’s oral health and to provide them with timely treatment in the event that any important issues are discovered. Every child who visits our practice for a checkup will receive a professional teeth cleaning, digital X-rays if needed, an oral cancer screening and cavity detection using DIAGNOdent. We can also provide supplemental fluoride treatment for your child if necessary.
By providing preventive treatments for your child, they will be less likely to require extensive dental procedures when they grow older.Some of the preventive treatments we offer for children include spacers, fluoride applications, dental sealants, and mouth guards for children who participate in contact sports.
It’s no secret that children and teens care deeply about the look of their teeth. When a child damages or loses a tooth, it can cause them to lose their confidence. That is why we consider dental restorations for younger patients to be immensely important. Our team works hard to provide children teens with top-quality dental restorations that look remarkably natural and offer outstanding performance. Whether your child comes to us needing a crown, bridge or a filling, our team at NK Family Dental will provide them with the best restoration possible.
