Children of all ages should routinely visit the dentist to help with their overall dental development. We recommend that parents bring their children in for their first dental appointment around the first birthday or when teeth begin erupting within their mouths. Dr. Nadia P. Groom has extensive experience in dealing with children of all ages and in helping them properly develop their mouth and oral behaviors. With proper oral development and routine appointments, we can help guide your children to an excellent oral future.
By bringing your children in early, we can help establish trust with Dr. Groom and our team as well as get them accustomed to visiting the dentist for pediatric dentistry appointments. During these early pediatric dentistry visits in Chatham and Orleans, we will educate you and your kids on proper oral hygiene habits and the importance of children’s dentistry. Our practice offers a variety of unique services to help children develop properly, including Myobrace® and behavior therapy. Combined with our friendly and gentle approach to care, we will make every visit to our office a pleasant experience for both parent and child alike.
Guiding Healthy Habits Early On
Our pediatric dentistry approach provides a healthier way to straighten teeth and improve overall oral health. As children get used to pacifiers or thumb sucking, they apply pressure and adjust their jaw bone into a narrow, improper position. With our Myobrace and behavioral therapy, we can work with your children to help them build proper breathing and eating habits, as well as reposition their jaw to help them develop to their full genetic potential. By starting early, we can ensure your child receives the necessary dental care and proper developmental guidance for a successful start in life.
