Keeping Young Smiles Healthy in Richmond
At Saba Road Dental Center, our team of dental professionals pride themselves in providing your child with positive early experiences of visiting the dentist. Positive attitudes to oral health established in childhood will last your child a lifetime.
Early Oral Health
You should bring your child in for their first examination as soon as they begin teething. Visiting the dentist will be easier going forward if you start visits while they're very young.
Bringing your child in for an early initial visit can help us to diagnose, monitor and/or treat, any developing issues before they become more serious.
Kids, like adults, should have a professional exam and cleaning every six months. Every child is different and each smile is unique, that's why some children may require more frequent appointments than others.
Services for Children
Regular professional cleanings and examinations starting from an early age are crucial when it comes to establishing and maintaining excellent dental health as children grow up.
To support your child's dental health, at Saba Road Dental Center, we provide the following services:
- Regular cleanings and examinations
- Specialized advice for children's dental hygiene routines
- Protect sealants
- Fluoride treatments
These treatments and services work together to help form the foundation of good dental health from childhood into adulthood.
Preventive Care for Kids
Your child's teeth are susceptible to tooth decay as soon as the teeth begin to erupt through the gums. For our younger patients, the prevention of decay, or cavities, is often our primary focus.
Regular Brushing & Flossing
Baby teeth need to be brushed twice a day, just like adult teeth. As soon as your child's first tooth comes in you should begin brushing.
As soon as they have two teeth side by side, you should also begin flossing your child's baby teeth once daily.
