Children’s Dentistry

Has your child had their first visit to a dental office? It may seem like it isn’t that important to care for “baby teeth” that are just going to fall out, however, this is far from the case! At Wheatland Dental, we recommend that children see us for their first appointment when their first tooth erupts. This allows us to properly monitor your child’s oral health from the start, creating any treatment plans necessary to maintain optimal oral health.

Importance of Children’s Dentistry

At Wheatland Dental, we believe that dentistry is an essential part of getting your child on the right path for optimal oral health. Although baby teeth eventually fall out, it is important to make sure they are properly cared for. Decay in baby teeth can actually affect the health of your child’s permanent teeth, while baby teeth that fall out too early can actually result in alignment and spacing issues with permanent teeth. When it comes to your child’s dental health, prevention and early detection can be immensely important.

For children that experience dental anxiety, we offer inhalation sedation. Ready to visit our dentist? Schedule your appointment with Wheatland Dental today.

Common Treatments

Wondering what treatment options are common when it comes to dentistry for children?

  • Dental Exams & Cleanings are an excellent way to ensure your child’s smile is as clean as possible, and there are no risk signs for any dental problems.
  • Dental Sealants are a preventive dental service which can be performed in just a few minutes, providing your child’s smile with extra protection from decay.
  • Fluoride Treatments are another preventive dental treatment which can be performed in only minutes. Fluoride can help strengthen teeth, stop demineralization and even reverse early signs of decay.
