At Vicksburg Family Dental, we welcome patients of all ages, including children. We are pleased to provide children’s dentistry to help you keep your child’s smile in good health. We encourage you to help your child establish good dental habits while they are young, and our knowledgeable dentists are dedicated to educating you, the parents, on good oral hygiene for children. Most children have all of their “baby” (primary) teeth by the age of 3. Our dentists recommend that you bring your child for their first dental visit around the age of 3.
Your child’s first visits to our dental office are focused on ensuring that your child feels calm and comfortable with the dentist. We will gently clean your child’s teeth and check for signs of dental problems, such as tooth decay. We work hard to provide an enjoyable dental experience for your child, but some children may feel anxious about visiting the dentist. If needed, we may recommend nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to make your child’s visit more relaxing. Nitrous oxide is very safe for both children and adults. For more information on children’s dentistry and how we can care for your child, we welcome you call or visit us soon.
