Typically, children’s dentistry means any preventive measures or dental treatments performed on children younger than 14 or 16 years of age.
At Hosaka Family Dental, we believe in acclimating children early to the dental experience. This helps them feel comfortable with treatments early on, which may lower their risks for dental anxiety in adulthood.
Early dentistry means bringing your child to our dentist in Smyrna, GA around their first birthday. These initial appointments allow the dentist to see how teeth are erupting and monitor jaw health and development. We also use these early appointments to acquaint your child with the dental setting, establish a relationship with him or her, and make their dentistry a positive experience.
Additionally, we talk to you about all findings and provide tips and advice for at-home oral care, including brushing techniques and nutrition information. When your child is old enough to transition to independent brushing, we can help with that as well.
