Cary, North Carolina family dentist Dr. Adam Moore is pleased to offer cleanings, examinations, and other age-appropriate services for the youngest members of your household. We can begin seeing your child for pediatric dentistry visits as soon as his or her first tooth appears to help ensure proper development and to begin acquainting them with dental visits. We recommend not waiting longer than your child’s first birthday to make an appointment, even if very few teeth have erupted. These visits are essential for helping children feel confident and comfortable with routine dental care.
If your child is due for a routine dental visit, please contact Moore Family Dentistry online or call our office at (919) 772-1811 to schedule an appointment today.
Dr. Moore caters pediatric services to meet the needs of each child. Depending on where your child is developmentally, this may include:
- Checking for proper tooth eruption
- Cleaning and fluoride treatment
In some instances, fillings and similar general dental treatments are appropriate for children as well. This, as with all aspects of your child’s dental care, will be based on his or her specific needs and never performed without your permission.
Education and Comfort
During pediatric dentistry visits, we take time to provide age-appropriate education that empowers children to take charge of their oral health. In this way, children can begin to understand the necessity of daily care and to take greater control over their general oral health.
We have created an environment that is welcoming and comfortable, enabling us to provide for all of your child’s needs without their feeling restless or anxious. This is particularly important for combatting dental phobia which can prevent older children and even adults from seeking necessary dental care. By showing your child that dental visits are safe, painless, and fun, we can help set the tone for future care and ensure a lifelong commitment to maintaining dental health.
