How the dentists at Dr. Kevin Brown and Associates can help your child’s smile.

Children are special—and their smiles are too! The services and caring treatment available with dentistry can help your child enjoy a pediatric dentistrylifetime of great, healthy smiles. You can help this by ensuring that your child receives pediatric dental services. Dr. Brown and
Dr. Deedy-Lee in Ayer, Massachusetts are committed to providing excellent dental care for your child.

Dentistry for children is different than dentistry for adults, especially when it comes to the approach of providing care. Children need a calming, comfortable atmosphere and relaxed environment. They need the gentle, soothing expertise of dental care providers who are used to treating children.

When Should My Child First See the Dentist?
Your child should see the dentist for an important first visit within 6 months of the eruption of the first primary tooth, and at least by the first year. During this first visit, your child can get comfortable with dentistry, laying the foundation for easy, relaxed dental treatment at subsequent visits. This initial visit is also a great opportunity for you to ask questions about your child’s dental health, brushing, and any other concerns you may have regarding pediatric dental services.

The truth is, your child is never too young to experience tooth decay. In fact, the minute your child’s first tooth erupts, you need to pay attention to their dental care. Your dentist can help by providing necessary pediatric dental services such as:

  • Yearly examinations and x-rays to diagnose dental problems before they become painful
  • Regular professional cleanings and fluoride treatments to protect your child’s teeth and gums
  • Nutritional counseling to ensure your child is limiting sugar intake and eating healthy foods
  • Dental sealants to protect your child’s permanent teeth from cavity-causing bacterial acid
  • Oral hygiene instructions to protect your child’s smile while at home
