What can I expect?

From the age of 12 to 16, children can generally brush their teeth on their own. Their permanent teeth are all generally present, so it is important to protect these teeth. During dental visits, we will monitor jaw development, tooth position, and orthodontic issues. If the child needs early orthodontic care, we can discuss which options will work best.

Pediatric dentistry is different because it focuses on children’s teeth. Children have developing jaw and teeth, which can impact the type of care they need. Unlike an adult dentist, a pediatric dentist focuses entirely on the child’s needs.

In general, children should see their dentist at least every six months. Sometimes, the child may need to have dental appointments every three months instead.

Children can continue to see a pediatric dentist for their entire childhood. We typically see children from birth to age 16.

The best thing you can do to prepare your child for the dentist is to get them used to brushing their teeth each day. You can talk to them about what to expect during the dental exam so that they are prepared. Once your child arrives at the dentist, our team knows how to put them at ease.
