If you want your child to form a great lifelong habit for oral hygiene, it’s best to start having them see a dentist at a young age. Tamarack Dental Associates recommends your infant come in for their very first dental exam once their first baby tooth makes its appearance. During this first exam, the dentist can check for certain risk factors and give you some recommendations on how to help with potential dental problems, including diet suggestions.
One of the best treatments you can have is prevention. That’s why Tamarack Dental Associates can offer your child dental sealants on their molars and premolars. These teeth tend to have deep crevices, and sealants can help stop cavities in their tracks. Fluoride treatments are also a recommendation that can help your child have strong and healthy teeth. We can even help if your child is still sucking their thumb or using a pacifier.
Bite problems and alignment issues are documented and then corrected as soon as it’s possible. This will help decrease treatment times. You can look into traditional braces for your child or Invisalign. There are also other orthodontic devices available that can help make your child’s smile as perfect.
Sometimes accidents are unpreventable. That’s why we can help with emergencies for your child; whether it’s a knocked-out or a fractured tooth. We can even help with severe toothaches!
