Children’s Dentistry in Newbury, Ohio

Even the smallest members of your family need healthy smiles.

As a family dentist, Dr. Jason Majors offers children’s dentistry to make sure that your little ones grow up to have big, beautiful, and healthy smiles. Dental care during the early, formative years can instill in your child a lifelong understanding of the importance of oral health, and we can also set the stage for anxiety-free dental visits down the road.

Beginning around the age of three – earlier if you notice any kind of problems or later if your child is unable to handle sitting still for the length of a short visit – Dr. Majors will start your child out with twice yearly children’s dentistry checkups and cleanings. These visits allow Dr. Majors to keep an eye on your child’s oral health and development, make recommendations about home care, and answer any questions you might have about your child’s smile. These early children’s dentistry visits are usually quick and simple, involving a visual exam and gentle cleaning.

As your child gets older, children’s dentistry visits will include educating him or her on proper self-care, more thorough cleanings, and dental sealants and fluoride supplements. Dental sealants are clear coverings that keep debris and bacteria out of the craggy surfaces of your child’s molars, which can greatly reduce the risk of cavities. Fluoride supplements help reduce cavities, too, strengthening tooth enamel and making it harder for acids to wear the surface of the tooth away. Children’s dentistry focuses a lot on cavity protection, as children have a hard time preventing cavities on their own.

With regular children’s dentistry trips to our Newbury, Ohio family dental office, your child can grow up to appreciate his or her smile and love visiting the dentist!
