Dr. Pahlavani and staff are experienced in the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. Children are not just small adults. They are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a dental exam.
Our dentists care for your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood and know how to examine and treat children in ways that make them comfortable. Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth.
Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Today, early childhood dental caries, an infectious disease, is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever. Trust our team to take care of you and your child with the proper experience and care we have to offer! Call us today and ask about our Happy Visits.
