In our dental office, we offer dentistry for all age groups, and this includes children.

Our dentists like to start seeing children around their fourth birthday and before they start school. This way, most or all of their baby teeth have emerged, allowing your Brentwood, TN dentist to see how the teeth have lined up, check on jaw health, and make sure there are no tooth health conditions like cavities.

Our Pediatric Dentistry in Brentwood, TN

We offer the services children need to achieve and maintain healthy smiles. This includes preventive and general dentistry.

Our preventive dentistry calls for regular exams and teeth cleanings. When age-appropriate, we also do x-rays when necessary and start children on regular professional teeth cleanings.

We may also suggest dental sealants or fluoride treatments to combat cavities and strengthen teeth.

General dentistry takes care of the maintenance, which includes tooth-colored fillings if cavities develop. We also offer dental crowns and extractions—the latter as a last resort following severe decay or trauma.

A Partnership with Your Child’s Dentist

Aside from in-office dentistry, your child’s dentist or our hygienist will talk to you about best practices for at-home brushing and flossing. When it’s time for your child to transition to independent brushing, we can also provide guidance.

In some cases, if your child is prone to cavities, we may provide nutritional counseling as well.

Your dentist also takes the time to answer your questions and address your concerns. And we always share findings with you following your child’s dental checkup.

Between your efforts at home and our quality children’s dentistry in Brentwood, TN, we can help your child enjoy a healthy smile.
