Are you doing enough to ensure your child receives the proper pediatric care? Caring for your child’s teeth and gums at a young age is a task that requires advanced care. However, you do not need to go through this time alone, as our team is here to help you provide oral health care for your child.

Never neglect your child’s oral health, as their teeth are susceptible to damage as soon as they are visible. Around the age of six months, your child’s first tooth will begin to appear. During this time, you may need to provide proper oral health treatments and alleviate any discomfort that may be felt when teething is present. When a tooth is visible, clean it daily to ensure that further damage does not occur.

For additional help for your child’s pediatric care, you will want to bring them into our office. A pediatric dentist receives up to three years of advanced training beyond traditional dental school to allow them to apply complex procedures and treatments to restore or protect a child’s smile. Furthermore, pediatric dentists can help assist with teething, baby bottle tooth decay and thumb sucking.

To learn more about pediatric dentistry, or to schedule an appointment with your child’s pediatric dentist at Haymarket Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, call us at our office in Haymarket, Virginia, at 703-754-0727. Dr. David Mortvedt and our team are here to help your child get the healthy smile they deserve!
