Dental Health Care For Children
We encourage parents to monitor their child’s dental health development and ensure they are seen by a professional dentist once their first baby tooth grows in. The sooner your child is seen by a professional dentist, the sooner we can begin monitoring their teeth, gums, and jawbone. This allows us to catch minor dental concerns in time for parents to adequately prepare for available treatment options. It also allows us to treat minor concerns before they get the chance to become major concerns.
Parents can help their children develop good dental health habits early on by encouraging a strict at-home hygiene routine. Brushing and flossing at least twice a day goes a long way in ensuring the longevity of your and your child’s smile. By encouraging good oral hygiene habits at home, and bringing your child to their regularly scheduled dentist appointments, you will be setting your child up for a lifetime of good dental health.
When your child is in the dental chair, rest assured our team members will take good care of them. We understand that visiting the dentist can be anxiety-inducing, especially for younger patients. Because of this, we make sure to explain everything we do in kid-friendly terms so that they are never taken off guard.
Additionally, we will move at their pace and take as many breaks as they wish while performing necessary procedures. We can also offer sedation dentistry solutions for patients who experience above-average dental anxieties. Talk to your child’s dentist about age-appropriate sedation dentistry solutions when scheduling their next dental appointment.
Age-Specific Dental Care
Children aren’t the only individuals that need unique dental care. We’re more likely to encounter certain dental issues based on our age. In the late teens or early twenties, the wisdom teeth develop. Usually, our mouths are too small to support this extra set of molars. This can cause crowding and other issues with your smile. We’ll monitor your wisdom teeth to determine if they’re going to need to be extracted to avoid further dental problems.
In our senior years, we’re more likely to suffer from discolored teeth. The impact of aging and lifestyle habits cumulates in these years. Our teeth are stained by years of coffee and the natural enamel thinning that occurs as we age. Solutions like professional teeth whitening or porcelain veneers can be used to get back a more youthful, whiter smile.
We’re more likely to have missing teeth as we get older as well. Missing teeth can age your face prematurely and negatively impact your oral health. It’s recommended that you replace missing teeth as soon as possible to avoid these consequences. We offer a variety of different replacement options, including dental implants. We’ll do an exam and discuss your budget and smile goals to determine the solution that’s best for you.
Schedule An Appointment
Patients of all ages should see a professional dentist at least twice a year to ensure proper maintenance. We recommend scheduling appointments once every six months for routine care. Please schedule your appointment online, or contact us directly if you have questions. We look forward to seeing you and your family soon in our Asheville, NC dentist office.
