One of the most rewarding parts of our dental practice at Hollon Dental is working with our young patients. Our dental team loves helping kids learn about how to care for their smiles and ensuring they keep their teeth healthy as they grow older. Children need special care for their teeth and gums as they transition from baby teeth to their permanent adult smiles. Hollon Dental is happy to offer children’s dentistry services for young patients at our dental center in Mobile, AL.
From the time the first tooth pokes through the gums as an infant, children need dental care services. Even though baby teeth will fall out, they have a job to do for the first few years of a child’s life. Those first teeth are important for eating and they guide the permanent teeth into the right place. Routine dental checkups, cleanings and dental treatments can keep those first teeth and the new permanent teeth in good health. At Hollon Dental, we welcome kids and their families for preventive, general and children’s dentistry services at our clinic in Mobile near Springhill, AL.
Pediatric Dentistry Services
Children need special care to protect their teeth from tooth decay. Kids are more susceptible to cavities due to several factors, including eating sugary foods and not receiving adequate dental cleaning. It is estimated that by age four, 25% of kids have had at least one cavity and by age 11, 42% of kids have had a cavity in one of their baby teeth. To prevent tooth decay, we offer treatments that can strengthen and protect the teeth in kids. Our children’s dentistry services include:
Most children should have dental checkups and cleanings every six months to maintain healthy smiles. Regular checkups can detect tooth decay and other dental problems early to minimize damage and reduce treatment costs, and routine cleanings can help prevent oral health issues. Dental insurance covers most preventive dental care visits and Hollon Dental accepts many forms of dental insurance.
