Why Your Child Needs Pediatric Dental Cleanings

In this post from Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville, we review dental cleanings for kids, one of our pediatric dentistry services. Even if your child brushes and flosses twice a day, regular cleanings are essential to maintain good dental health, just like with mom and dad.

We encourage patients to practice preventative dentistry by:

  • Brushing—help your toddler brush their teeth then clean thoroughly afterwards
  • Flossing—start as soon as your toddler has two adjacent teeth
  • Healthy diet–limit sugary snacks and beverages
  • Regular pediatric dental cleanings with a fluoride treatment
  • Regular examinations

Dental cleanings increase the effectiveness of daily oral care by removing the plaque and tarter that can build up even with proper oral hygiene.

No matter the patient’s age, we want everyone who sits in one of our dental chairs to enjoy good dental health. Our services include children’s dentistry, and general and cosmetic dentistry. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

Excellence In Pediatric Dentistry

Excellence In Family Dentistry At Freedom Village Dental

At Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville, we are proud of our record of excellence in pediatric dentistry. Just as you would take your children to a pediatrician for basic health care, so should you remember us when it comes to their dental health.

We treat children from infancy through high school age, at which point they’ll be ready to transition to a family or general dentist. Our primary goals with your youngsters are maintaining good dental health, which comes down to prevention and treatment.

Another big part of our mission as pediatric dentists is educating parents on the best ways to treat their kids. An infant needs special dental care even before any teeth come in. And once they do start coming in, we’ll want to see them to make sure everything is growing as it should.

Many parents wonder when their child should start seeing the dentist. The answer: as soon as the first tooth comes in, or the first birthday, whichever comes first.

Tooth decay is extremely common in children, but the good news is that it is preventable. With proper brushing and flossing at home and children’s dentistry at Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville, your youngster can be assured to good dental health. We also offer complete general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment for your child today!

At Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville, we are proud of our reputation for excellence in pediatric dentistry. We know that no kid really enjoys going to the dentist, so we’ve created a welcoming environment.

From Infancy Through Adolescence

We serve toddlers, young children, and teenagers. We focus on preventative dentistry and helping families establish healthy dental habits for life.

A Member of Your Child’s Healthcare Team

A pediatric dentist is an indispensable member of your family’s healthcare team. Regular dental visits starting no later than 12 months of age is just as essential as well child check-ups with your pediatrician.

Proactive Preventative Dentistry

We are dedicated to early detection and treatment of dental diseases. Plus we stay abreast of the latest in pediatric dentistry.

Because most children and teenagers have at least a few fillings, it may seem that cavities is an unavoidable part of childhood. The truth is that during childhood (or any stage of life) tooth decay is 100% preventable.

There is much you can do to keep your child’s primary teeth and adult teeth healthy and cavity-free.

Setting a Good Example

When it comes to practicing careful dental health habits, we can all set a good example for our youth.

A Lifestyle For A Healthy Smile

Do they see us brush and floss carefully? Do they find water bottles in our car cup holders or empty soda cans? Do they see us limit sugary snacks? Do we see the dentist twice a year?

At Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville, we want all our patients to enjoy good dental health. Our services include children’s dentistry, and general and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!

Lasting a Lifetime: Dentistry for Children in Jacksonville

Teeth are meant to last a lifetime, which is why early dental care is so important. At Freedom Village Dental in  Jacksonville NC, we are committed to providing excellent dentistry for children.

A big part of keeping teeth and gums healthy is daily care. That means teaching your youngsters good brushing and flossing habits. It also means bringing them in for a checkup and cleaning every six months. The American Dental Association says children should have their first visit within six months of their first tooth coming in, and no later than their first birthday.

Keeping teeth and gums healthy also means having a balanced diet that is low in sugar. More and more children are showing signs of early tooth decay. It has even been called the most common chronic childhood disease. By minimizing sweets and establishing a good dental health routine, they can be limited.

A good tool for protecting teeth is dental sealants. It’s a thin protective layer of plastic material applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where tooth decay is most prevalent. Along with brushing and flossing, sealants go a long way toward preventing cavities.

Early dental care is vital. The children’s dentistry provided by Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville NC  helps to ensure your youngster’s teeth and gums will stay healthy throughout their lives. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry. Make an appointment with us today.
