BABY TEETH MAY BE TEMPORARY, but they’re incredibly important!
Baby teeth perform many functions, including:
We recommend kids come in on their first birthday or by their first tooth. During this appointment, our experienced doctors can make sure your child’s teeth are growing correctly. Bringing your child in at this age helps them feel more comfortable being in a dental clinic. We at Mitchell Dental are here to relieve and prevent pain as well as promote a healthy mouth. Early visits help ensure your child feels comfortable knowing that we are here to help him or her.
This is also the perfect time for parents to ask questions about how they can help promote a healthy mouth at home. At Mitchell Dental, you are welcome as the parent to stay with your child throughout their entire visit. We want to make sure both you and your child are comfortable throughout your entire visit.
The staff at Mitchell Dental is well equipped to make your child’s appointment as easy as possible. Not only has Mitchell Dental been seeing both kids and adults since opening our doors in 1992, but we also have team members that have experience with pediatric-specific clinics. For example one of our hygienists,Abby Reeves joined us after four years in a pediatric clinic and knows how to make your child’s visit a great experience.
We want to be your go-to resource whenever you have questions about your family’s dental care. Call our office today to set your child’s first appointment. We can’t wait to see you!
