Dr. Karian welcomes patients of all ages to Summit Dental, including children starting around the age of one-year-old. Even though this seems early for your son or daughter to visit the dentist, it helps us begin building rapport with your little one, so they feel comfortable visiting the dentist. It also gives Dr. Karian a head start on monitoring your child's oral development and allows him to inform you of any concerns as early as possible.
Your Middletown dentist understands how essential these first encounters with the dentist are in helping your child have successful dental appointments in the future. We do everything we can to make these visits fun for your son or daughter.
Dr. Karian may also have some treatment recommendations, such as fluoride treatments or dental sealants, to help build and protect your child's teeth. Fluoride is easy to incorporate into your son or daughter's routine cleaning appointment, and dental sealants are a quick and non-invasive procedure that coats your little one's back teeth to keep out the harmful acids and bacteria that cause cavities.
Is it time for your son or daughter's next dental appointment? Perhaps you have questions about their dental health? Give Summit Dental a call today. We're happy to answer your questions and schedule your child's next visit.
