Kids and Children Dentistry - Lynnfield MA
A child’s early visits to the dentist and lessons about oral hygiene become the basis for a lifetime of good dental health. Ensure that these early memories are positive one— and guarantee your kids a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime—with pediatric dentistry services at Lynnfield Family Dental.
Children’s Dental Care
Dental care for infants, children, and adolescents is different from dentistry for adults, but it addresses similar concerns. The most important thing is that children learn to maintain good oral health, and that they are given the chance to ask questions and experience dentistry as a positive rather than a scary experience.
In a typical pediatric dental appointment, Dr. Krothapalli will talk with you and your child about:
- How to keep teeth and gums healthy
- Foods that do and that don’t promote good oral health
- Braces, Invisalign, and other orthodontic options (for teenagers)
Pediatric Dentist Specialties
The focus of dental care for your children is substantially different from the kind of care that you’ll receive as an adult. First and foremost, a pediatric dentist is responsible for educating your kids about the correct ways to brush, floss, and take care of their teeth. Even though their baby teeth will eventually fall out and be replaced with adult teeth, it’s important that children get in the habit of good oral care when they’re young.
For our teenaged patients, Dr. Krothapalli focus on the importance of proper oral care in preventing bad breath, tooth discoloration, and other cosmetic and practical aspects of good dental health. If teeth straightening is necessary, we can discuss and provide options for orthodontia, such as Invisalign or traditional braces. We also offer wisdom tooth extraction.
