Natick Children’s Dentist Starts Smiles off Healthy
At Papageorgiou Dental Associates in Natick, we offer oral healthcare for children starting at the age of two. We believe it is critical to give every child a positive first dental exam. We understand that the experience in our office will be carried with your child for a lifetime of oral health. Regular checkups every six months and establishing good oral hygiene habits will help ensure your child’s overall dental wellbeing.
What can you expect from your children’s dentistry visit? At Papageorgiou Dental Associates, we will:
- Assess overall oral health
- Examine teeth for signs of decay or infection
- Look for gum disease or other periodontal issues
- Determine need for orthodontics
- Check for jaw or bite problems
- Educate about brushing and flossing
- Optionally apply fluoride treatments or dental sealants
Fluoride treatments and dental sealants are two safe, effective processes that can protect your children’s teeth against cavities. Fluoride treatments consist of a gel or foam placed in mouth trays. They only need to be worn for a few minutes to produce the best effect, and can be applied during your child’s regular dental visit. A dental sealant is a thin plastic layer painted over your child’s molars, and these protections can last for years! Also, thumbsucking devices have been a wonderful tool to use for children who can't stop sucking their thumbs.
At Papageorgiou Dental Associates, we offer comfortable, effective, and safe children’s dentistry. At our Natick office, we provide oral health services for the whole family. If you live in Natick, Framingham, Wayland, Sudbury, Wellesley, or surrounding communities we invite you to experience the best that dentistry has offer. Please make your appointment today!
