With regard to child dental care, children have special needs that are best addressed by a qualified dentist. The dentists at Long Wharf Dental Group understand these special needs and work hard to make your child feel comfortable throughout the dental visit. Make sure your child gets the appropriate dental care to develop a healthy set of teeth and a life-long habit of routine dental visits.
Making children more comfortable in the dentist’s chair.
At Long Wharf Dental Group, we take special care to ensure your child feels at ease while visiting our dentists. Our family-friendly dental offices are designed with both the child’s and the parent’s comfort in mind. In addition, our child-friendly staff have specialized training in the demonstration of proper dental hygiene and in the delivery of the routine child dental care necessary for the development and maintenance of your child’s healthy smile.
The importance of seeking specialized child dental care.
Children have unique needs that require specialized techniques and training. The dentists at Long Wharf Dental Group take the time to appropriately address these needs.
We speak the language of children.
Our dentists know how to explain proper dental hygiene and routine dental procedures in language your child will easily understand. We will instruct your child on the proper way to care for teeth and gums and explain all necessary dental procedures in terms appropriate for his or her age.
The importance of early child dental care.
Help your child get the appropriate child dental care right from the start. The American Dental Association recommends a first dental exam within six months of the first tooth, and definitely no later than your child’s first birthday. Trust the pediatric staff at Long Wharf Dental Group to provide the pediatric dental guidance your child needs for proper tooth growth and development.
Pediatric dental treatment for cavities.
Cavities are particularly prevalent among children. The dentists of Long Wharf Dental Group have specialized training in the prevention of cavities and in the restoration of your child’s affected teeth. We offer protective resins to shield young teeth from decay, as well as amalgam or natural tooth-colored fillings to correct existing cavities. We also provide a variety of crowns for teeth in need of more substantial treatment.
Addressing the causes of childhood tooth decay.
Tooth decay in children stems from many different causes. The most common include improper oral or dental hygiene, unhealthy food choices, and a lack of routine professional dental care. Whatever the cause, your Long Wharf Dental Group dentists offer a number of effective solutions, including the most frequently recommended ones—drilling, laser treatment, and microabrasion. After a thorough assessment of your child’s teeth, your dentist will recommend the best treatment based on current tooth condition and the present level of decay.
Get appropriate child dental care from child-friendly dentists.
Ensure your child’s oral health from the very first baby tooth, through the proper development of permanent teeth, through necessary braces and beyond. The dentists at Long Wharf Dental Group will prepare your child for a lifetime of good oral hygiene, routine dental care, and healthier, more beautiful smiles.
