School starts in Hoboken on September 8th, giving you just enough time to squeeze in a dental cleaning for your child before the year begins. Give our office a call at 201-792-9400 to schedule their next appointment and let us help your kiddo start the school year right!
Early Dental Care Matters
Even when children have primarily (or only) baby teeth, professional dental care is an important part of their oral hygiene routine. These visits allow for cleanings and examinations, along with pediatric dental services such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants that can help ensure their teeth remain strong and healthy.
Routine visits also allow for services such as dental fillings, to treat small issues before they become larger problems, and allow our experienced family dentists to begin planning treatments that may be needed to help ensure proper tooth and jaw development as your child ages.
Routine dental visits allow us to provide age-appropriate daily hygiene tips and to help educate your child on the importance of taking care of their teeth. Perhaps most importantly, they set a foundation for optimal comfort when visiting the dentist, helping to avoid dental phobia and instill a life-long dedication to peak oral health.
How Often Should My Child Visit the Dentist?
Just like adults, children should undergo preventive services every six months. These visits help patients avoid gum disease, tooth decay, and root chamber infection, and are an important part of every oral hygiene routine. Most dental insurances pay 100% for preventive care such as cleanings and examinations, but we offer a variety of financing options, including a cash discount, for any out-of-pocket treatments. We can discuss this with you in greater detail during your next visit.
