What services do you offer to children?
At Dr. Fairfax & Associates Family Dentistry, we love to see children at our practice. Our goal is to make every experience they have with us exceptional so they'll look forward to future visits!
We like to see children around the age of one year old for their first visit. As your child gets older, Dr. Fairfax may recommend some additional services to help build and protect small teeth.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps teeth remineralize and strengthen as they develop. We may recommend fluoride treatments for your child during their routine cleanings and checkups. Dental sealants are a thin coating of composite material that we use to cover the chewing surfaces of your child's molars as they get older. Sealants help protect these vulnerable areas from tooth decay, which minimizes cavities for your child.
If your child participates in sports, Dr. Fairfax is happy to discuss the right protective wear for your child. Because sports injuries or accidents account for 40% of dental emergencies, it's important to be proactive about protecting your child's mouth and teeth from injury.
We look forward to building a relationship with your child and teaching them the importance of their oral health. Contact our office today to schedule their next appointment.
