Early dental experiences are vital in helping children develop a positive attitude about dental care. At Alpharetta Smile Care, we love helping kids in the Alpharetta, GA area form healthy oral hygiene habits to last their lifetime. We provide fun, friendly dentistry for children for that is appropriate for each life stage—from your child’s first dental visit through late adolescence, Dr. Worful and our team of dental professionals make each dental visit a positive experience while ensuring that your child has great oral health.
Early dental visits
While it can be easy to think that your child’s baby teeth are not important because they eventually fall out, they play many important roles in your child’s development. Baby teeth help your child say certain speech sounds and chew correctly, save space in your child’s mouth for their permanent teeth to grow in, and help them feel confident about their smile.
For this reason, we recommend that your child visits us for their first dental appointment by the age of three. These early visits are primarily designed to help acclimate your child to sitting in the dental chair, getting their teeth gently cleaned, and ensuring that their oral development and health is on track through examinations. In addition, we take the time to answer any questions you may have about your child’s oral health and how best to take care of their teeth and gums at home.
Preventive care for kids
Dr. Worful provides dental care that is appropriate for maintaining optimal oral health throughout each stage of childhood. Preventive care is paramount throughout your child’s development to help ensure that their teeth and gums stay healthy:
- Routine cleanings eliminate built-up plaque and tartar that contribute to gum disease and cavities
- Regular check-ups allow us to monitor your child’s oral development and detect any issues at their earliest stages when they are easiest to treat—early intervention can make a big long-term difference when it comes to pediatric oral health!
- Dental sealants for kids help prevent cavities from forming in the deep nooks and crannies in their permanent molars by “sealing” them off with a protective coating that blends in with their smile
