Children should begin seeing the dentist as soon as signs of their first tooth become evident. Children grow and develop quickly, and starting a consistent oral hygiene routine during their formative years of life can help protect your children from developing complex dental health concerns. Manassas Smiles is dedicated to helping you and your children build a stable foundation for the enjoyment of lifelong oral health.
Dr. Hassan encourages parents to bring their children to the dentist by the age of 1. Bringing children into the dentist at an early age gives them ample time to adjust to the new setting and can help reduce dental anxiety. We often recommend parents bring their babies into the dentist with them so that they know the dentist office is a safe, comfortable place they can trust. We encourage parents to lead by example for the benefit of their child, and their oral health.
Early exposure to the dentist also allows Dr. Hassan to track the development of your child’s teeth and bite, allowing for early intervention of potential concerns. Our dental care team always tries to make your child’s dental health exam comfortable, calming and fun. We focus on patient education and disease prevention to help your children understand the importance of taking care of their teeth and gums.
Biannual Pediatric Dental Health Exams
It is important to bring your child to the dentist at least once every six months. Biannual dental health exams and tooth cleaning help maintain your child’s beautiful, natural smile. Regular dental health exams may also help to prevent childhood tooth decay.
Did you know that nearly 50% of children in the United States have tooth decay?
Tooth decay is a growing health epidemic in children. Tooth decay is a progressive infection of the tooth that often leads to more advanced dental health concerns. Children with tooth decay are more likely to develop gum disease, gum recession, or even tooth loss. Our Manassas, VA dentist office offers dental sealants and professional teeth cleanings to help keep your children’s teeth clean and healthy.
