Your child’s dental health is vital to their overall health and vitality. At The Fayetteville Dentist, we practice kid’s dentistry, and love working with our youngest patients. Why? The health of a child’s teeth and gums can affect their speech development, eating habits and self-esteem.
We recommend bringing your child in for a first exam before age one, or when their first tooth erupts. During the initial visit, we can discuss dental treatments such as sealants, fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing techniques, and orthodontics.
Children’s dentists also counsel parents about thumb-sucking, pacifier use and other habits that impact your child’s dental health. We can also help you keep your child’s teeth protected during sporting activities.
We can also provide tips on encouraging good dental care in your children at home. Establishing a positive dental routine early in life is one of the most important factors in dental health. Teeth are meant to last a lifetime!
