Children’s Dental Care in Strongsville, OH
Dr. Butler can meet the evolving dental health needs of your growing child. We recommend that you bring your child in for an initial visit around their first birthday.
Early visits with Dr. Butler allow young patients to become familiarized with our office setting. During these visits, Dr. Butler will monitor your child’s oral development and address any problems that could impact the health or function of their smile. As your child grows we will introduce how to care for their smile and educate them on the benefits of tooth brushing, flossing, and other healthy habits.
Why are baby teeth important?
Your baby’s primary teeth play an essential role in the development of their permanent teeth and the structure of their smile. Dr. Butler will help you to support your child’s growth and development with dental care and oral hygiene advice for keeping the primary teeth healthy.
The primary teeth serve two important roles in your child’s overall development:
- Placeholders for the permanent teeth
- Support normal speech development
If a baby tooth becomes decayed or damaged we will almost always recommend a filling and appropriate treatment for repairing the tooth. Keeping the tooth in place can help avoid problems with eating, speech
Dr. Butler provides the comprehensive dental services that your child needs to support their growing smile:
- Dental sealants: placed on the back teeth or molars once they are in place to minimize the risk of decay.
- Sports mouthguards: a custom fit mouthguard should be worn to protect the teeth and gums during contact sports.
- Tooth bonding: in the event of damage or a cosmetic concern impacting your child’s confidence in their smile, tooth bonding can be used to restore or change the appearance of a tooth.
Family dentistry provides today’s busy parents and caregivers the opportunity to maintain everyone’s oral health in one convenient location. Our team gets to know all members of your family and can support your role as a model for your child’s oral hygiene habits, helping them enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
