Pediatric Dentistry

Our friendly team at Webb City Dental can help your child feel at ease during a dental appointment. We love working with kids, and we can start seeing your child as early as six months after the appearance of the first tooth.

Build Confidence in Dentistry Now

Your child needs to see a regular dentist to maintain good oral health. We love seeing kids smile when they come into our office, and our goal is to keep those smiles happy. As your child continues to visit our office, we work to build a good relationship with your child.

Creating a “dental home” can help your child feel good about returning to the dentist. Your children become familiar with the friendly faces of our staff each time they visit. We continue to provide exceptional dental care you can trust while making your children feel comfortable!

Preventing Cavities and Avoiding Future Problems

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children should see a dentist around a year old, or around six months after the first tooth erupts. When you start early and continue to bring your child in on a regular basis, you can prevent serious dental issues.

During our routine visits we check for tooth decay, teeth grinding, and symptoms of oral cancer. As your child grows older, we start taking digital x-rays and using other dental technologies to check the status of your child’s oral health.

Other issues we might check include:

  • Habits like pacifier and thumb-sucking.
  • Dietary problems that could affect sustainability of teeth.
  • Irregularities in tooth eruption, such as tooth shifting or impacted teeth.

We also promote good hygiene practices, and we can show you how to take care of your child’s teeth, from infancy to young adulthood.
