The First Appointment
The American Dental Association recommends that children visit their family dentist in Alexandria by the time their first tooth grown in. After that, it’s important to bring them in every six months for routine checkups and cleanings.
Our team works to create a fun and relaxing environment for your child to learn more about their oral health so they can build a positive relationship with dental care. During their very first visit, we’ll make sure that it’s completely stress-free and introduce them to brushing and flossing. Dr. Salumbides will examine their teeth and gums and talk about the importance of keeping them healthy with your child. Our team is also more than happy to work with parents and offer at-home dental hygiene suggestions and recommendations for kid-friendly dental products.
Kid-Friendly Dental Treatments
At Vienna Smiles, our goal is to ward off cavities and other common oral health problems that are common culprits for declining oral health. During one of your child’s checkups and cleanings, we may suggest one of these preventive kid’s treatments.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel and protect your little one’s teeth from decay. If we notice that your child’s enamel isn’t quite as strong as it should be, we may recommend fluoride treatment to keep cavities away. The procedure takes only a few minutes and is completely pain-free.
For children who are at a higher risk of cavity development or who have a sweet tooth, we may recommend dental sealants. These are small shields that harden over your child’s molars to prevent sugars and carbohydrates from settling on them and attracting harmful oral bacteria. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and the sealants can last for years with the proper care.
