Teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and good dental health begins with general dentistry at Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL.
We recommend a child’s first dental visit be early in life: as soon as the first tooth comes in, or by the first birthday. An early check is the first step in preventing troubles and setting the stage for lifelong dental health.
As children begin this lifelong journey, we start keeping meticulous records of their dental health, including the development of their jaws. This usually includes dental x-rays. We also share information with parents.
The condition of a child’s teeth can change fairly quickly. A slight change in diet or behavior, like thumb sucking, may be noticeable after just six months. Such issues can make the child vulnerable to tooth decay or jaw development problems. The sooner we can identify them, the better.
Lots of parents wait too long to start bringing their children in for a checkup. This can have serious consequences. Kids should see the dentist twice a year, just like their parents should.
At Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL, our general dentistry can identify problems before they get serious. We want all our patients to enjoy excellent dental health. Patients from all over North Athens, East Mooresville, and South Cullman also come to our office for cosmetic dentistry. Request an appointment today!
