Posted on June 29th, 2015

After all, important dental care habits are often established at a young age, but a child’s teeth will take some time to come in. Going to the dentist can also be a scary prospect for a child who is not used to the tools and practices that go along with a dental visit.

At Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, many members of our pediatric dental team are parents as well, so we understand firsthand the quality care, gentle manner and respect that your child deserves, just as if they were an adult patient. Establishing pediatric dental visits with your child can be started as early as age three, and can help establish habits to prevent oral issues, including:

When your child visits Family & Cosmetic Dentistry’s Cary, NC dental facility, we can give them fluoride treatments, use sealants to prevent tooth decay on the back of their teeth and teach them measures to keep their smiles sparkling and white.

If your child has dental issues that we are not able to address, we have a list of pediatric dental specialists in the Cary area that we would recommend in our absence.
