Advanced Dental Care of Mandarin
3667 Crown Point Road, Jacksonville, FL 32257
Taking your child to a kid’s dentist in Mandarin is as essential to their overall health as taking them to a pediatrician. By establishing a regimen of good oral health at an early age, you can help them establish lifelong good health habits.
Our dental office in Mandarin provides comprehensive dental care for children in the area and each children’s dentist at our office is dedicated to helping you and your child achieve your dental goals. All the dentists in our office can provide dentistry for kids but our pediatric dentists specialize in providing dentistry for children. A pediatric dentist has completed a minimum of two years of specialized dental training beyond that required for general dentistry so you can be sure that your child will receive the best dental care possible. Call our office today at (904) 638-7181 to schedule an appointment for your child.
Children should begin to see a dentist when they have one tooth that has fully erupted according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. A single tooth can develop a cavity and if there are two teeth that abut each other, decay can start. Teaching your child to floss at an early age is the best defense against cavities and decay. Your children’s dentist can provide you with helpful hints on teaching your child how to floss.
Sending a child to bed with a bottle or sippy cup of milk or juice has contributed to an increase in baby bottle tooth decay. This is a very bad practice because the sugars and acids in these substances can cause decay and cavities in your child’s teeth. If you must use a bottle or sippy cup, make sure it has only plain water. Call our office in Mandarin for more information or if you have more questions.
During your child’s first appointment in our office in Mandarin, your children’s dentist will examine your child’s jaw alignment and teeth to assess their condition. The examination can be performed while your child is on your lap or in the dental chair, whichever makes you both the most comfortable. We can take x-rays if necessary but most children don’t need them.
Good oral health is important no matter your age so we offer our young patients the same services we provide to our adult patients. Some of our kids dentistry services include:
Baby teeth can begin erupting as early as four months of age but usually start to appear around six months of age. The bottom two front teeth are usually the first to appear but teething patterns will vary by child.
Baby teeth can start falling out when a child is as young as 5 or 6 and they’ll usually disappear in the same order as they appeared. Each child’s tooth pattern is unique to the child but your pediatric dentist can answer your questions during your appointment in our office in Mandarin.
Several factors can influence the onset of a toothache in a child. Whether it’s a one-time occurrence or if it’s a chronic condition will also make a difference. If your child is experiencing one or more toothaches, call us for an appointment with a dedicated children’s dentist in Mandarin.
