Make Your Child’s First Dental Visit in Seekonk, MA a Positive Experience
At Perfect Smiles, we make your child’s first dental visit in Seekonk, MA a great experience for both you and your young one. Regular dental care at an early age is crucial to your child’s future dental health – and so is a positive attitude toward the dentist. They’ll get both from us!
For our youngest patients, their care may include:
- Friendly dentists who explain everything they do as they work
- Technology like air abrasion that repairs cavities with minimal sound, heat, pressure, and vibration – and without local anesthesia, so no needles are required
- Preventive treatments like dental sealants
- Heated massage chairs and TVs to make their time in our chair a treat
- Prizes after their appointments
Get Your Questions Answered at Early Dental Visits
We’re happy to see your child before their first birthday. Early visits are as much about educating you as about treating your child. Our dentists will answer all your questions about your child’s dental care. They’ll only perform the treatments your child is comfortable with, and they always use a gentle touch. Learn more about things you can do at home to encourage a healthy smile.
The Best Way to Deal With Decay Is to Prevent It
While we use air abrasion to treat cavities as painlessly as possible, our goal is always to prevent decay before it happens. We recommend dental cleanings as soon as your child’s teeth appear. As they get older, we’ll teach them proper brushing and flossing techniques. We may also recommend applications of fluoride and/or dental sealants to prevent cavities.
We apply sealants to areas where decay commonly occurs, such as the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. The thin plastic coating “seals” teeth, leaving a smooth, easy-to-clean surface. It’s completely painless; we just paint it onto the teeth.
