As the parent of a young child, you may not yet be thinking in terms of long-term dental care for him or her…but Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics of Virginia does exactly that for you. Our office follows a child from his first visit through his teenage years, providing comprehensive care under one roof.
Your whole family can benefit from a practice that offers pediatric dentistry and orthodontics. In today’s busy world, most of us appreciate “one-stop shopping” for outstanding dental and orthodontic care for our kids.
Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics of Virginia provides early orthodontic treatment starting as young as ages 7-8. This early treatment helps identify potential issues concerning bite and jaw problems. Being proactive about your child’s bite helps malocclusions be addressed early, so that possibly your child can give orthodontic care a miss later in her late teens or adulthood.
In the meantime, you as a parent can model and teach great oral health care habits from your child’s infancy through childhood. You may already be helping your child with the following pediatric oral hygiene skills and services:
- Brushing, flossing and gargling (if old enough).
- Providing a healthy diet and offering healthy snacks.
- Visiting your child’s pediatric dentist every 6 months.
- Considering application of dental sealants to protect young teeth.
