The team at Grandridge Dental strives to provide a fun and comfortable environment for patients of all ages. We know how important it is to provide children with a positive dental foundation that will last for their entire lives. Whether your child is about to receive their first dental visit, needs a complete dental checkup or requires emergency treatment, Grandridge Dental will be there every step of the way.
The First Dental Visit
Parents are advised to schedule their child’s first dental visit by the time they turn one year old. By setting up a dental visit at this young age, children are able to become familiar with the process early in their development. This helps to establish a level of trust and comfort for future visits.
The first dental visit is an important time for parents to address any concerns they have about their child’s oral care regime. We also use this opportunity to provide parents with information about teething, cavity prevention, brushing and flossing habits, thumb sucking and more.
Various proactive preventative treatments can go a long way towards protecting your child’s teeth from serious damage further down the road. By starting early, our goal is for your child to require significantly fewer dental treatments later in life. Some of the most popular preventive dental treatments for children include dental sealants, fluoride applications, spacers and mouth guards for children who participate in contact sports.
Dental emergencies can affect patients of any age. Our caring staff will make every effort to help your child remain calm and relaxed during this potentially scary event. We promise to provide your child with the best immediate treatment available. Although nobody wants to experience a dental emergency, you can rest assured that your child is in the best possible care with Grandridge Dental.
