Children's Dental Services
Routine dental care is just as important for kids as it is for adults. The services at our dental clinic in Arthur can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy and happy.
Start Positive Dental Experiences Early
At Arthur Dental, we're committed to helping children feel at ease during their dental appointments so they can maintain good oral health today and into adulthood.
We offer a complete range of dental services for Arthur kids and their developing smiles, and are dedicated to providing your child with the most positive dental experience possible.
We realize that going to the dentist can be an intimidating experience for children, so we strive to keep the environment calm, friendly and inviting. We will work at the pace of your child, take breaks if they get overwhelmed, and explain each step of the process.
Your Child's First Visit
Infants should be seen by a dentist around first six months of age, or at minimum by the child's first birthday. By this time, the baby's first teeth, or primary teeth, are beginning to erupt and it is a critical time to spot any issues before they become big concerns.
Dental Services for Kids
At Arthur Dental, our services can be tailored to meet your child's oral health needs, and keep their smile healthy.
Preventive Dental Hygiene
Visiting the dentist for regular exams and cleanings when children are young will help preserve the primary teeth until they are ready to fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. During each visit, we will review proper oral hygiene techniques for your child's so their smile can get the proper care at home.
Restorative Dental Services
If your child is at risk of decay, develops a cavity, or is experiencing misalignment issues, your dentist may also recommend restorative treatments such as dental fillings or mouth guards.
