Children’s Dentistry for Westford, MA, and Surrounding Communities
Successfully treating children requires being passionate about children, which we are. Each child has their own precious personality which, through years of dedication and experience, we have mastered the art of interpreting. We then use this information to build custom relationships — relationships founded on caring, trust and, of course, just the right amount of humor. We relate to kids and kids relate to us! During children’s dentistry visits in Westford, Massachusetts, Dr. Dheeraj Pamidimukkala and Dr. Shivani Patel help make sure your child is comfortable and having fun with dental care.
Our Westford dental office can begin children’s dentistry for kids as young as two years old. Of course, if you notice that your child has a problem with his or her teeth or gums prior to this age, please schedule an appointment. You may also want to bring your child to your or a sibling’s dental checkup so that your child can become familiar with the sights, sounds and friendly helpers in our dental office. We call this a “Happy Visit.” Your child’s independent children’s dentistry checkup will involve a tooth-by-tooth inspection and gum exam. Our dentists will check for proper growth and development, as well as tooth decay and other areas of concern. Our continued goal is to foster strong relationships and positive experiences through gentle and compassionate children’s dentistry care.
As your child grows, they will need regular children’s dentistry checkups and hygiene visits to ensure optimal oral health. Our team will teach and encourage homecare techniques so that your child can learn how to effectively brush and floss, with your help at first, then on his or her own. The dentist may recommend dental sealants or fluoride supplements as part of your children’s dentistry program. Sealants are thin, clear coatings that protect hard-to-clean back teeth from the sugars and bacteria that cause tooth decay. Fluoride helps to strengthen tooth enamel and ward off cavities. Because most bottled water does not contain fluoride, your child may be deficient in this important essential mineral. Sealants and fluoride supplements are quick and easy protective measures that can save your little one from cavities.
Let us help your children learn the importance of optimal oral health from a young age. Call 978-692-6326 to schedule a “Happy Visit” and children’s dentistry checkup today! My Smile Care will help you make the best choices for your child’s unique and precious personality.
