Why should children go to the dentist?

If you want your children to have healthy dental care for their entire lives, you should start bringing them to the dentist as soon as possible. According to the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, every child should get a dental checkup by age 1, or as soon as their first tooth comes in.

Dr. Salem understands that optimal oral health begins early. Salem Dentistry knows how important it is for your child to feel safe and comfortable and works hard to provide a friendly atmosphere.

At Salem Dentistry, toys and TVs in the waiting room keep your child entertained while you wait. Dr. Salem’s warm chairside manner will help your children relax and create an enjoyable experience for them. They’ll love going to the dentist!

Why is it important to see an orthodontist at a young age?

Orthodontics may straighten crooked teeth and improve your bite by correcting a misaligned jaw. It’s critical to take care of orthodontic concerns during adolescence or childhood years to avoid problems later in life. Optimal results may not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have finished growing.

Dr. Salem provides orthodontic services, too, so you can check that off your list of concerns. Salem Dentistry has it covered. For added convenience, Dr. Salem has office hours into the early evening, so your child doesn’t need to miss school for dental or orthodontic appointments.

You need an experienced general dentist who can care for your whole family, so make an appointment online or give Salem Dentistry a call today.
