Did you know that children should start seeing a dentist by their first birthday? Not only can the dentist make sure your child’s mouth is healthy, but kids can also learn to be comfortable at the dentist, which encourages a better attitude toward oral health.
Proper dental care during the formative years is imperative to avoid a lifetime of complications or pain. We focus on early detection, prevention, and oral health treatment. Patient education is key to good oral health for a lifetime. Our dentist teaches your child the importance of daily oral care and teaches them how to maintain a good daily regimen. Parents are informed about a wide range of topics, from the diet, the best type of toothpaste, and thumb sucking cessation if needed.
Our Care Dental Clinic also provides orthodontic dental treatment (dental braces, clear aligners, Invisalign, etc.) for kids and teens. Our early age orthodontic approach help kids prevent the orthodontic problem from getting bigger and can avoid the need for braces (or orthodontic treatment) in the future.

Answers to questions
It takes a special person to work with children, especially when it comes to their dental needs. Pediatric dentists specialize in working with children to make sure their mouths are healthy and their teeth are coming in properly.
At Care Dental Clinic, we take extra care with our youngest patients so that they learn good oral health habits early. Our pediatric dentists received two or three years of extra training to work with our youngest patients. This training includes some education on child psychology so that they can better understand how children think and feel.
A child should first visit a dentist between the ages of six months and one year. That’s because primary teeth are extremely important for chewing, talking, and preparing for adult teeth to come in. Starting dental care for children early is a critical part of their overall health.
You can certainly take your child to the same dentist you see, but you may want to make sure that they are comfortable treating children. However, pediatric dentists generally have extra training to handle children’s dentistry and may provide your child with a better overall experience.
Tooth decay occurs in children for many reasons, including diet, a water source containing little or no fluoride, and poor oral hygiene. That’s why it is so important to see a dentist regularly, especially for children. Pediatric dentists can watch for early signs of decay and educate your family on ways to prevent future issues, including a good oral care routine.
The treatment for your child would depend on the tooth’s condition. It may require the removal of the damaged tissue and then a filling. For more severe cases, it may require more extensive repairs that could take multiple visits.
Pediatric dental visits cost a little less than adult visits generally. For most of the services like cleaning and common checkup, the prices are affordable. However, some dental treatments can be marginally higher in cost if your child’s dental health is not immaculate
