Why go to a separate practice in Salt Lake City when you can bring your kids to the children’s dentist at Creek Dental Group? We have general family dentists and children’s dentists on staff, so you have the convenience of being able to bring your whole family to one dentist’s office.
Children’s dentists are specialists who receive years of extra training to be able to treat children. We recommend children visit a family dentist for the first time at around 6 months of age, or earlier if teeth begin developing sooner.
One of the most important aspects of children’s dentistry is psychological; kids’ dentists are trained to communicate with children on their level, making them feel comfortable.
Time was, going to the dentist was synonymous with fear, but modern children’s dentistry has made that idea a thing of the past. Today, kids look forward to going to the dentist, where the staff is fun and friendly and they get treats for being good.
While kids’ dentists have a bag of tricks that make it easier to treat children, they also learn specific methods of treating special-needs patients. What works for many kids does not work for all, and this can be difficult and frustrating for parents of special-needs children. Worse, if they cannot find a children’s dentist who can manage their child, they may go without the dental care they sorely need.
Here at Creek Dental Group, our children’s dentists are well-trained in treating special-needs children.
Besides knowing how to manage kids and their varying temperaments, our children’s dentists are trained in child-specific dental anatomy and physiology. Unlike with a general dentist, this extra training gives them the ability to evaluate whether a child’s jaw and teeth are developing correctly and to spot any issues if they are not.
That’s one of many reasons our children’s dentists don’t want parents to wait until they see a problem to bring their child into our dentist’s office. Some developmental issues are hard for the untrained eye to spot. In fact, many problems can be prevented altogether by bringing children to the dentist early.
Further, it’s a good idea to get children acquainted with going to the dentist as early as possible. This way, they become used to the experience and don’t have the opportunity to consider whether it might be scary. By bringing your child to the dentist early, you help them to develop a lifelong love of dental visits, and that means their teeth will stay healthier and stronger for longer.
We work together in-house with Burg Orthodontics, so if your children require braces at any point, you can get all your treatment in one place. Give your kids the best chance possible at having a healthy bright smile — call today to make an appointment with Creek Dental Group’s children’s dentists, serving the Salt Lake City and Layton areas.
