Pediatric Dental Care for Ages 1 and Up
Children should see a dentist when their first tooth erupts, or by their 1stbirthday. At Battle Creek Family Dentistry, we believe that early preventive care helps your child enjoy their trips to the dentist and experience fewer dental problems over time.
Some of our pediatric dental services include:
Cleanings and Exams
Low-key, enjoyable trips to the dentist are what we want for every child. We focus on education, prevention, and helping your child enjoy every visit with us so that we can help them enjoy disease-free smiles.
Early imaging of your child’s teeth helps us evaluate their tooth development, eruption patterns, and decay for earlier (and less invasive) treatment.
Sealants block out cavity-forming bacteria from the deep grooves in your child’s back teeth and also make it easier to keep the teeth clean.
Primary (baby) teeth are usually much weaker and prone to decay. Fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel to make it resistant to cavities. It also encourages proper enamel formation.
