Uptown Dental offers a variety of kid-friendly services that can protect and restore your child’s teeth. Once they reach their teen years, our team would be happy to discuss our orthodontic options and wisdom teeth removal with you. Our dental care for kids includes:
The American Dental Association recommends that children begin seeing the dentist by the time they turn one or when their first tooth comes in, whichever happens first. If your child has passed these milestones and hasn’t seen a dentist yet, we will be happy to work with them at a convenient time in the near future.
There are a number of home remedies you can try for a mild toothache before their next appointment. Holding a cold compress to the cheek, taking over-the-counter pain medication, or rinsing with a warm saltwater solution (if they are old enough to rinse and spit) can all work well to relieve tooth pain. If the pain ever becomes unbearable, please bring them in for an emergency appointment.
Dental anxiety is very common among children and adults alike. We always tell parents to speak to their children about dentistry in a positive tone and to emphasize how important it is to have healthy teeth and gums. Our friendly dental team would also be happy to have a chat with your child to explain dentistry in positive terms that are easy for them to understand.
For more moderate to severe cases of dental anxiety, our team also offers relaxing sedation dentistry, like laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation, that can help your child have more pleasant experiences at the dentist.
