Children’s Dentistry in Farmington

Your child’s smile is precious, and you want to do everything you can to make sure it stays healthy and beautiful. At Farmington Valley Dental in Farmington, CT, Dr. Thomas G. Peters and his team want to help you achieve that goal with our all-encompassing array of children’s dentistry services. From the very first time your son or daughter visits our office, we pledge to promote a comfortable, relaxing, and safe environment, ensuring that each and every visit is a pleasantly memorable experience.

The Importance of Children’s Dentistry

Though it is true that your child’s primary teeth, or “baby” teeth, will eventually fall out, these pearly whites still require just as much care as your own permanent teeth need. This is because primary teeth play the role of placeholder for permanent ones later in life. When these little teeth are kept healthy, your child has a better chance of enjoying lifelong oral health and a beautiful smile.

Our complete menu of children’s dentistry services includes:

  • Thorough cleanings and exams
  • Digital x-rays for more accurate imaging and less radiation
  • Custom athletic mouthguards
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Helpful home hygiene tips
  • Nitrous oxide sedation (safe and effective “laughing gas”)

Schedule Your Children’s Dentistry Visit Today

The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry agree that children should visit the dentist for the first time by the time they are one year old. Children who wait to see an oral healthcare professional until they are three or four are more likely to suffer from decay and other common dental maladies. At Farmington Valley Dental, we want to ensure that your son or daughter enjoys optimal oral health throughout the childhood years and beyond. Contact us today to schedule your little one’s visit, and discover for yourself what a difference our commitment and experience can truly make.
