Proper Dental Care Starts in Childhood

As children, our teeth are constantly growing and changing, helping us to eat our first solid food and later falling out and making room for our fully-formed adult teeth. Make no mistake: Although our “baby teeth” fall out and are replaced between the approximate ages of 6 and 12, teaching and maintaining proper oral hygiene is still incredibly important during a child's formative years.

The health of baby teeth and gums is just as important as the health of adult teeth and gums. After all, cavities can affect baby teeth just as they can affect permanent adult teeth. A professional pediatric dentist can help you maintain your children's dental health as they grow.


Does your child need dental work?

At Manassas Smiles family dentistry office, we are dedicated to the oral health of children—no matter how old or young they may be. From infancy to young adulthood, it is our goal to ensure your child's smile is healthy and beautiful. We understand that going to the dentist may not always be fun, especially for younger children. Our team is dedicated to making each office visit comfortable and calming so your child will feel comfortable returning to our Manassas children's dentist office.

We believe optimal oral health should start when a child is young. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends a child's first visit to a dentist should be by twelve months of age. This is to evaluate any possible risk factors and create a relationship between dentist and patient. The sooner you can start helping your child to understand the importance of oral hygiene and become comfortable with having his or her teeth examined and cleaned, the more prepared and relaxed he or she will be upon future visits throughout childhood (and even into adulthood).

When you bring your child to our pediatric dentist office, we can provide:

  • Evaluation of oral health
  • Testing for oral diseases/conditions
  • A dental plan specifically for your child
  • Cleanings

Regular office visits for general dental needs may help prevent your children from getting dental cavities and periodontal diseases. By catching these issues early, we can treat the problem, prevent damage to permanent teeth, and instill children with a better sense of the importance of good oral hygiene. Whatever the case, we look forward to caring for your child's dental needs!
