A Welcoming Environment for Kids
At West Market Dental, we make it our mission to provide children with positive dental experiences, so that they're more likely to maintain healthy dental habits, and feel good about visiting the dentist in the long-run.
We also offer a children's play area for your little ones to enjoy while you wait for their appointment to begin.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should be seen by a dentist after the first six months of age, and at least by the child's first birthday. By this time, the baby's first teeth (primary teeth) are beginning to erupt. It is essential that a child's primary teeth are healthy, because their development sets the stage for permanent teeth.
Your Child's Developing Smile
Every child grows 20 primary teeth, usually by the age of 3. These teeth are gradually replaced by the age of 12 with a full set of 28 permanent teeth, and later on, four molars called wisdom teeth.
Dental Services for Kids
Regular dental care is just as important for kids as it is for adults.
At West Market Dental, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
- Hygiene Cleanings & Oral Exams
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when your child is young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by the permanent teeth.
During each appointment, your dentist or hygienist will also review proper oral hygiene techniques with your child to ensure that their smile is getting the proper care at home.
- Fillings & Sealants
If your child is at risk of decay or develops a cavity, your dentist may also recommend treatment options such as dental sealants or fillings.
- Mouth Guards
If your child is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend a mouth guard as a treatment option.
- Frenectomy (Lip & Tongue Ties)
Our dentists also perform frenectomies for babies and children when the frenum in the mouth is restricting oral function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied or lip-tied.
