Framingham Dentist Delivering Children’s Dentistry
Children need to visit the dentist, too! In fact, even before their permanent adult teeth come in, our children’s dentistry services can help prepare kids for excellent oral health throughout their entire lives. If you’ve got a child and live in Framingham, MA, you may be looking for a family dental office that provides care for patients of all ages – even the little ones. At the office of Mark Fried, DMD, we provide complete children’s dentistry in conjunction with our adult dental care services, making it convenient for your entire family to visit the same trusted name in local dentistry.
Your Child’s First Dental Checkup
Starting around age 3, our office will provide your child with regular dental checkups. We can see them sooner if needed, but many children can’t sit still through a dental visit very well before the age of 3. At these early children’s dental checkups, we can count the teeth that have erupted and make sure everything is developing nicely. Then, we can check for signs of early childhood oral health problems, including baby bottle decay, and provide a home care plan for you to help your child maintain their baby teeth until they’re ready to fall out naturally. That’s right – children can develop cavities in their baby teeth, too! As the baby teeth fall out and are replaced by adult teeth, we’ll be there to oversee the process and look for warning signs or potential problems.
Children’s Dentistry Treatment Options
We can also provide the common children’s dentistry treatments, like dental sealants and fluoride treatments, that protect teeth from decay as your child develops good oral hygiene habits.
