From the time the first tooth arrives, children need special care for their new tooth. Even though baby teeth only last a few years, they are vital for oral development, paving the path for a child’s permanent smile. At SmileBuilders, Inc., we love working with children and their parents to achieve beautiful, healthy smiles that will hopefully last them a lifetime. We offer pediatric or children’s dentistry at our dental offices in Canton, Byram, and Lucedale, MS.
Each stage of your child’s oral development is vital. Teeth are crucial for chewing the foods they need to grow, but they are also vital for proper speech. Pediatric dentistry focuses on protecting the teeth and gums through the various stages of tooth growth, providing treatment when necessary to remove decay or repair damaged teeth.
Dr. Preston Cobbins and our entire team at SmileBuilders, Inc. welcome the chance to see kids at our office. We love teaching children about their teeth and how to care for their smiles. Our office is kid and family-friendly, and we take the time to ensure both parents and kids feel comfortable during every visit. Dental education is one of our top priorities, which is very important for our young patients.
Sedation Dentistry for Children
In some cases, children will need more invasive procedures that may require sedation. We offer sedation dentistry when necessary at a local hospital. Long or invasive procedures can be too much for any child to endure. Sedation allows them to sleep while we perform their needed treatments. We also can use sedation dentistry for children with special needs, which may be less stressful for young patients with certain conditions.
Your child’s smile is an important part of their uniqueness and vital to their overall health. For exceptional options in children’s dentistry, come see us at SmileBuilders, Inc. Our dental practice accepts most types of dental insurance, and we welcome kids of all ages. Contact our dental practice to schedule your child’s next checkup.
