When Should I Start Taking My Child to the Dentist?
As a father himself, Dr. Aiello loves taking care of children and his calm and friendly demeanor is perfect for putting them at ease. Dr. Aiello likes to start seeing children around age one. This allows him to begin monitoring your little one’s oral development, while also helping your child to feel comfortable and acclimate to the dental office. We move forward with procedures such as dental cleanings only when your child is read
As Your Child Grows
As your child gets older, Dr. Aiello may recommend additional services for them; fluoride treatments help protect their developing teeth, and dental sealants coat the chewing surfaces of their back teeth to protect them from the bacteria and acids that cause tooth decay.
Dental Protection and Athletics
If your child decides to participate in athletics, Dr. Aiello can discuss and recommend the right mouth guard for their needs. Protecting their mouth during sports is vital as sports-related injuries account for nearly 40 percent of dental emergencies.
We understand that it’s much more convenient for families to receive their dental care from the same provider, so there’s no need to drive your little one all over town when there’s a warm and welcoming environment for them at Michael Aiello, DDS!
