You and your spouse are having your first child. It’s a big responsibility, and it gives you a lot to think about. One thing you should consider is finding a place to meet your family’s oral care needs, a place like Beaumont Family Dentistry.
Our dentists have three offices in Lexington, KY, that serve families throughout Central Kentucky. We care for patients of all ages, but we encourage you to bring your son or daughter for his or her first dental visit around his or her second birthday.
By this time your little bundle of joy will have most of his or her primary teeth, which makes this a good time to have them checked by a dental professional.
To make an appointment at one of our dentist offices in Beaumont Centre Circle, Hamburg, or Leestown, just call or contact us with the online form for the location most convenient for you.
A Happy Visit With Our Family Dentists
We know that first visit to the dentist is a milestone for your whole family. As parents, you are taking a big step in trusting us with your child’s oral health.
It’s a big step for your child, especially if this is the first time he or she has ever been to a dentist office. We will do everything we can to make this a “happy visit” for your son or daughter. We want children to know that our dentist offices are safe places where every member of our staff cares about them.
At Beaumont Family Dentistry, our dentists are not going to push your child to do anything he or she isn’t ready to do. If all we get to do is look at his or her teeth during that first visit, that’s OK. If your child is ready for a cleaning, then we will do that, too.
We will work at a pace that helps your son or daughter feel comfortable with each step we take.
Call or contact us online to ask any questions you may have or to make your child’s first appointment today.
Family Dentists Who Can Meet Your Child’s Changing Needs
As children get older, they grow. As part of this growth, their teeth change, too.
Our dentists can monitor those changes if you bring your child to see us for routine dental visits. Our team will provide professional cleanings and examine your child’s mouth for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. We also will watch for any alignment issues as his or her primary teeth fall out and are replaced by permanent teeth.
Our staff at Beaumont Family Dentistry can provide orthodontic treatment for your child as well. We offer traditional braces, Invisalign®, and Fastbraces® as well as what is called preventive orthodontics.
Through preventive orthodontics, we can take action to address potential alignment issues early. In some cases, this minimizes your child’s need for orthodontic care. In other cases, it can eliminate the need for traditional orthodontic treatments when your child is older.
By bringing your child to Beaumont Family Dentistry, you can count on quality dental care at every stage of their lives.
Family Dentistry Should Be More Than Just Cleanings
We encourage your entire family to visit our dentist offices a few times every year for routine cleanings and examinations. This along with your daily oral hygiene routine will help you keep your mouths as healthy as they can be.
But we can go beyond the basics as well:
✦ Athletic Mouthguards
Many children play sports, and it’s good that they do. Sports are a fun way to exercise and help your children stay healthy.
Sports that involve a lot of contact, a lot of running and changing directions, and a lot of jumping are considered high-impact sports. This sports can increase the risk of injury to your child’s teeth or jaw.
We don’t want your child to give up those sport, but we do hope you will take precautions, like wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard that we can create at our office.
✦ Dental Sealants And Fluoride Treatments
Both of these services can reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities. Sealants form a barrier between your child’s most vulnerable teeth and the bacteria that cause cavities. Fluoride treatments help to strengthen their enamel and can even fix minor problems.
