Your child should see a pediatric dentist once their first tooth erupts or no later than their first birthday.
Our dentists treat patients of all ages and have plenty of experience treating babies, children, and teenagers.
Our pediatric dentists can help your child understand the importance of teeth brushing and flossing so they can build a strong foundation for oral health early in life.
Benefits of Pediatric Dentistry
Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease for American children, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As a result, our pediatric dentists do everything they can to help protect your child’s oral health. For example, we offer dental sealants to protect back teeth from cavities. We also can help your child learn healthy oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.
If you have any questions about your child’s oral health, don’t hesitate to call our office or bring it up during their next appointment. We offer dentistry for children because we understand the unique challenges that come with providing dental care for growing smiles. For example, we may recommend wisdom teeth removal if your teenager’s wisdom teeth are set to come in crooked. This is just one of the many ways we look out for your family.
We provide quality dental care for the whole family. To learn more about dentistry for kids or to schedule your child’s first appointment with one of our Westland pediatric dentists, call Parkside Dental Team at (734) 261-6060.
