When you require quality and affordable pediatric dentistry in Hamden, Connecticut, call us at Dixwell Dental. Our family-friendly team is always here to help the young people in our community.

Your children deserve to receive the best dental care right from the start. Our skilled dentists at Dixwell Dental will take care of your children’s oral health and set them up for a lifetime with strong and healthy teeth.

Why Is Pediatric Dentistry Important?

It is incredibly important for your child to grow up with excellent dental habits, helping to ensure that they have strong and healthy teeth for their entire lives.

Bringing your child to regular dentist appointments from a young age is a key part of this.

Our experienced and kid-friendly dentists will be able to teach your children about all aspects of oral hygiene and caring for their teeth the correct way.

Regular checkups will ensure that decay is caught and treated early, as well as detecting orthodontic issues that may require treatment in their teen years.

When Should I Start Bringing My Child To The Dentist?

If you have a baby, you should be thinking about bringing them along for their first dental appointment around the time of their first birthday, or less than six months after the eruption of their first tooth.

If you have a child older than this that has never been to the dentist yet, don’t worry about it. But be sure to call us at (203) 404-7006 to book them in for their first appointment as soon as possible. At Dixwell Dental, we make it easy for busy families to fit us in, offering extended hours and weekend appointments.

How Often Should My Child Come To The Dentist?

Children need to visit the dentist for regular checkups as often as adults do, which is twice every year. During these appointments, their dentist will examine their teeth to detect any health problems such as decay. They will also check for potential issues with the jaw, gums, and oral tissues, as well as examining their bite.

Outside of these six-monthly visits, please bring your child in to us anytime that they experience dental pain or damage. It is very important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent further pain and damage, especially with young children.

What Pediatric Dentistry Procedures Do You Provide?

Dixwell Dental offers a comprehensive range of dental services for children. In addition to regular checkups, you can bring your child to see us for fluoride applications, sealants, and tooth-colored fillings. We also offer custom-made mouthguards and nightguards for children if required.

Dixwell Dental is also a Certified Invisalign Provider. Invisalign treatment is ideal for older teenagers that have a poor dental bite and have had all of their adult teeth come through. Invisalign straightens the teeth out with very little impact on day-to-day life, unlike traditional braces.
