Pediatric dental exams and cleanings in Northampton

Northampton family dentist

It's essential for optimal oral wellness that your child come in for a dental exam and teeth cleaning every six months. Here at Modestow Family Dentistry, we have made it comfortable and welcoming here, so that your child will feel right at home. Our staff is friendly and patient, and our Northampton family dentist goes the extra mile to ensure that she or he does not experience pain while here.

The first time you bring your child in, he or she will become acquainted with the equipment that is used as part of a dental exam and cleaning. When things are familiar, they seem less scary. Our Northampton family dentist will do a thorough examination and take x-rays to determine if there are any cavities that need treatment. Baby (primary) teeth are susceptible to tooth decay, and it is vital to stay on top of their condition, because those teeth are supposed to fall out on a particular schedule. If they come out early due to the effects of decay, it can result in shifting of teeth and improper room for adult (permanent) teeth to erupt later. Teeth cleanings may produce anxiety at first, but that's more for the sound than anything else. He or she will become accustomed to it, and our Northampton family dentist will take the time to explain to your child the reason why it's being done and what to expect. Teeth cleanings are key in the prevention of tooth decay, removing plaque and tartar that escaped your child's brushing and flossing. It's like hitting the reset button and getting a brand new start on dental health.

Let us schedule you and your child for a visit to our office for a dental exam and cleaning. Call us right now. Your child's teeth are too important to wait.
