The child dental office at Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics is hardly what you would call a clinic. We pride ourselves on providing a fun, cheerful environment for child dental procedures at our two locations in Albuquerque, NM.
When you choose us to be your dental home, your child’s oral health will be taken care of by one of our friendly dentists from 9 months to 19 years of age. Additionally, we offer special needs dentistry to individuals up to age 26.
Your child’s first tooth will typically come in between 6 and 12 months. Children begin to lose baby teeth at about 6 years old. Adult teeth are typically fully grown in by age 12. At every stage of your child’s development, it’s important to take them in for a check-up so we can monitor your child for dental problems. Dental office visits should include:
Infant dental care up to 12 months:
Children’s dental care up to age 12:
Adolescent dental care up to age 19:
Child dental procedures may make your child feel apprehensive, especially at younger ages. Our philosophy is to never force treatment on a child. For this reason, we are happy to provide laughing gas to help them relax during treatment.
If your child is still anxious and uncooperative, we provide three levels of anesthesia dentistry, beginning with oral sedation administered at one of our offices or at one of four local hospitals.
Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics provides comprehensive pediatric dental procedures to children, including fillings, gum disease treatment, dental crowns and just about anything related to pediatric dental care. Contact us to set up an appointment with one of our friendly, caring dentists.
