Pediatric dental care usually begins when a child gets his or her first tooth. At Mertz Family Dentistry in Longmont, CO, we sometimes interfere if a patient is born with a congenital anomaly or needs early dental or oral medical attention.
Many general dentists can perform pediatric dentistry services. Our dentists are trained and qualified to do simple pediatric procedures like apply dental sealants or perform fluoride treatment. At Mertz Family Dentistry, we can provide your entire family with what they need when it comes to dental health.
Our dentists can offer many things, they can give you advice on how to take care of your child’s dental health and the right diet for their teeth. They’ll also tell you how often you should bring in your child for a check-up.
Treatment of any dental caries can be done by the dentists, in addition to preventive treatments like fluoride treatments and dental sealants. These are used to preserve and strengthen teeth and are more important in childhood than they are in adulthood.
Children’s teeth are vulnerable compared to those of adults and need more care. Additionally, a child’s dental health at a young age will influence the state of their teeth later on in life. You can get everything you need and ask any questions you might have when you visit us. Your child’s dental health is our priority.
