At Attentive Dental Care, our Morris Plains general dentist and the rest of our staff believe that it is never too early to get your child started on the path toward a lifetime of optimal oral hygiene. As soon as your child’s first teeth start to erupt, you can begin regular cleaning routines. Before your child first visits our Morris Plains general dentist, it is important to let them know exactly what to expect. Many children experience feelings of fear or anxiety before visiting the dentist, but in some cases this can be prevented with proper preparation beforehand. We also work hard to create a welcoming, lighthearted, and fun environment for all of our pediatric patients, so that they understand that the dentist is a good place to be and to relieve any worries that they might have about their visit.
When it comes to dental services for our younger patients, they mostly fall under the category of preventative and hygienic care. This includes regular visits for cleaning and examinations, dental sealants in order to protect permanent molars from decay, dental fillings for teeth that have already decayed, gum treatments if periodontal disease or damage is evident, and other procedures as they become necessary. In addition to the procedures, we are sure to instill useful information about oral health and hygiene at each visit. Our Morris Plains general dentist believes that education and prevention are invaluable aspects of pediatric dentistry.
