At Blacksburg Smiles in Blacksburg Virginia, our staff is dedicated to also practicing children’s dentistry. We believe that foundation of strong teeth and oral hygiene can be guaranteed if properly managed from the early childhood. Our team of dentists are qualified in children’s dentistry for this purpose. Good oral health is necessary for child’s overall healthy growth.
At Blacksburg Smiles in Blacksburg Virginia, we not only treat the children but also make their parents aware of the importance of their children’s oral health. Our dentists advise the parents to visit us at least once after the child’s first tooth. The children should be taken for regular oral checkups so that they develop a good relationship with their dentists and start to feel themselves at home with the checkups and treatments. In this way, this practice will stick with the child for lifetime.
We provide an extremely warm and pleasant atmosphere for the children at Blacksburg Smiles, so that they may not feel frightened or nervous during the checkup or treatment. Most of the time, the treatments are carried on in the presence of parents in the consultation room so that the child may feel secure.
Regular checkup may involve a thorough dental exam, cleaning, topical fluoride application, and x-rays. X-rays are mostly avoided unless there is no option left. A complete history of the child’s checkups, treatments and assessments are kept with the dentist and the parents are conveyed the information regularly and future treatments are also discussed, if any are being foreseen by the dentist.
