It’s important to start your child early with good dental hygiene and oral habits that will last well into their adult life. Most children begin teething around six months and usually get all of their baby teeth by the age of three. Protecting your child’s oral health is important. At Congressional Dental Care, we take prevention and education seriously and believe in promoting strong foundations in prevention and home care. We offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of your family.
Family Dental Services
Our comprehensive dental services are tailored to all stages of oral health. General dental services include a comprehensive oral health exam, dental cleanings, and disease screenings. Bringing your child to the dentist is essential for their oral health and development. Helping a young child develop a healthy and beautiful smile can support their overall development and even boost confidence in their appearance.
- Dental Cleanings– Children, teens, and adults should get their teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year. Dental cleanings help to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.
- Dental Fillings– Dental fillings are a conservative treatment option for repairing a decayed tooth. Dental fillings can be color matched to blend with your child’s natural smile for a beautiful result.
- Mouthguards– Mouthguards can protect your child’s teeth and jaw from injury while playing sports. All athletes from childhood to adulthood should wear custom sports mouthguard to prevent tooth loss.
- Wisdom Tooth Removal– Wisdom teeth are typically removed in the late teens or early twenties as they begin to emerge. Wisdom tooth extraction is a routine dental procedure that can prevent overcrowding or relieve impacted molars.
Dr. Ali Sarkarzadeh recommends that you schedule your child’s first appointment when they turn one or when the first tooth appears. By starting early dental care, your child is less likely to develop complex dental concerns such as:
- Gum disease
- Tooth Decay
Routine dental checkups are key to protecting your child’s oral and overall health.
What to Expect
At the first visit, your child will be examined for cavities, oral injuries or other problems such as tooth decay. Your child’s teeth will be cleaned, and the dentist will discuss concerns such as teething issues, pacifier use, or finger/thumb-sucking habits. Our pediatric dental team will help you and your child learn fun and entertaining ways to promote good oral hygiene. Remember, starting early will help promote healthy oral habits.
We look forward to serving you and your family.
