When it comes to your child’s smile, as a parent you likely want nothing less than exceptional dental care using the latest technologies. At Cannon Dental in Salt Lake City, UT, we provide just that. Dr. Cannon uses the perfect combination of state-of-the-art techniques, a warm and friendly demeanor, and a relaxing environment to make dentistry for children fun.
Children are different from adults in many ways, and that especially applies when it comes to children’s dental care needs! Dr. Cannon and the team of dental professionals at Cannon Dental provide age-appropriate dental care that is tailored to your child’s life stage.
Early dental visits
Just after your child turns one, we recommend bringing them in for their first dental visit. This is typically a short visit that is intended to help your child become familiar with the dental office and establish a foundation for our relationship with your child to grow. To help make your child’s first visit a positive one, we encourage parents to:
- Read them fun books about visiting the dentist
- Take their child to the office before their visit so they can “preview” it
- Talk with them about what the dentist will do and why
- Have a positive attitude about your own past dental experiences
During kids’ dental cleaning appointments, we examine their teeth and gums and take x-rays as needed using low-radiation technologies, and check on their overall oral development to ensure that it is on track. In addition, once it is age-appropriate for your child, we will gently remove any built-up plaque, tartar, and debris from their teeth and polish their teeth.
Preventive care for healthy smiles
We also offer preventive therapies that have been shown to help keep children’s teeth healthy and free from cavities, such as fluoride treatments and the application of dental sealants.
At Cannon Dental, we also believe in the power of patient education, even for our youngest patients! We will provide guidance to both you and your child on how to take care of their teeth and gums at home, including nutritional information and proper brushing and flossing techniques. If your child has a habit such as thumb-sucking, we can evaluate it and provide guidance on addressing it.
