It's important to keep your kids safe as they grow. Peery Family Dentistry extends their care to your sons and daughters during children's dentistry visits. Dr. James M. Peery, Jr. and his son, Dr. James M. Peery III, want to care for your entire family by welcoming you to ours! Our kind children's dentistry staff is ready to assist your loved ones as they begin their journey to achieving optimal oral health. Please call our office if you would like to schedule a children's dentistry appointment.
We like to begin caring for your child with children's dentistry when their teeth have fully grown in, which is usually around the age of two or three. However, if you have noticed something unusual about the way their pearly whites are developing prior to this age, please call our children's dentistry office. Our staff will examine your child to check for any problems.
During your child's first children's dentistry examination, a Peery Family Dentistry staff member can calmly show your child around the exam room and answer any questions they may have. We'll count each of your child's teeth and Dr. Peery will look for signs of decay. If he does find anything, there's no reason to worry! Our children's dentistry team knows that children love sugar and may sometimes forget to brush properly. This is the perfect recipe for decay. We can treat the area with a filling, as well as explain to your little one why it's important to properly care for teeth.
After Dr. Peery has finished examining your child's teeth, a children's dentistry hygienist can perform a gentle cleaning and explain proper brushing and flossing techniques. We've found that children need to understand the importance of these practices to create good dental care habits, and our children's dentistry team can make sure your son or daughter is provided with this crucial instruction. Lessons from our children's dentistry office can help your child develop good dental habits.
As your child grows, we can incorporate fluoride treatments as a normal children's dentistry service. Fluoride is an important mineral for developing teeth, and it helps strengthen teeth. When your child's adult molars come in, our children's dentistry staff can paint your teeth with a clear dental sealant as well. This can add an extra layer of protection against cavities and harmful bacteria. If you child plays a sport, we can create a customized athletic mouthguard to protect their teeth from trauma. Peery Family Dentistry wants your kids to get the most out of children's dentistry from our practice!
