Our mission at Cozy Family Dental is to offer a pleasant and comfortable environment for patients of all ages. We strive to provide all children and teens with a positive dental experience that will serve as a foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. Our dental care experts are ready to help your child with all of their oral care needs, including their first dental visit, tooth restoration treatments, pediatric orthodontics and more. Together, we will work hard to make sure that your child has a beautiful smile that gives them the confidence they need to face the world.
The First Dental Visit
Children are expected to receive their first dental visit by the time they turn one year old. Visiting the dentist at this young age allows children to become familiar with the setting early within their development. This establishes a level of trust and comfort for future visits.
The initial visit offers parents a chance to address any questions or concerns that they have about their child’s oral care habits. Our dental health specialists often provide new parents important information regarding issues, such as teething, cavity prevention, proper brushing and flossing, thumb sucking and more.
Complete Dental Checkups
The oral care experts at Cozy Family Dental are happy to provide children and teens with complete dental checkups. Just like with adults, it is very important for young patients to have their teeth and gums examined on a regular basis. These routine checkups give us an opportunity to look out for any possible dental abnormalities so that appropriate treatment can be given in a timely manner.
Our complete pediatric checkups include a professional teeth cleaning, X-rays and an oral cancer screening. We also provide parents with information on how to help care for their child’s growing teeth. It is our recommendation that all children receive a complete dental checkup at least once every six months.
Our clinic offers various preventive treatment methods that are designed to protect your child’s mouth from later damage. For instance, dental sealants are often used inside growing mouths as a way of preventing cavities from occurring. We are happy to answer any questions you might have about preventive treatments to ensure that your child has a lifetime of strong, healthy teeth.
Dental Restorations for Kids
Despite regular checkups and good home care, sometimes restorations are necessary for children. Whether it’s filling a cavity, providing a crown if the tooth is more damaged, or using a space maintainer to fill the space of a tooth lost too soon, we are prepared to offer children various necessary dental restoration treatments. Our goal is for your child to have a healthy mouth and teeth to last a lifetime.
Orthodontics is a special field of dentistry that concerns the alignment and positioning of teeth. The critical years of childhood and adolescence are particularly important in ensuring that teeth are aligned and positioned properly. Many children and teens can greatly benefit from corrective treatment methods such as braces and retainers. These devices work to straighten teeth, which creates an aesthetically pleasing smile. By correcting these issues early, your child is less likely to require additional orthodontic treatment later in life. Our caring staff is ready to address any concerns that you or your child might have about orthodontic treatment, allowing you to be sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
