As a new parent himself, Dr. Candon understands what it’s like to want the best for your child. That’s why he’s focused on providing compassionate, educational, high-quality dentistry for young patients who are still building their dental hygiene skills. Our team at Bridge Mill Dental Care understands that your child’s first experiences with a dentist are crucial in order for them to build a healthy relationship with their dental health. That’s why we always strive to make their appointments fun and positive. If you’re looking for a great children’s dentist in Indian Land that will treat your child like family, you can count on our team of professionals!
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends bringing your child in for their first checkup by the time their first tooth grows in. If you’d like to introduce them earlier on, you can always bring them to your appointment with you. This is a great, pressure-free way for them to meet our team and learn about their pearly whites!
During their first visits to our office, we focus on making the environment fun, relaxed, and educational. That way, as your child gets older, not only will they be equipped with the dental tools necessary to keep their teeth and gums healthy, but they’ll also look forward to visiting our office every six months for their checkups and cleanings!
At Bridge Mill Dental Care, we offer a variety of kid-friendly treatments to help tackle common oral health problems that occur in our younger patients.
These are clear, protective shields that we can paint over your child’s molars to keep harmful substances such as sugar and carbohydrates from collecting in the grooves. They help reduce the risk of cavity development by limiting the accumulation of harmful oral bacteria.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps build your child’s tooth enamel, which is the protective outer layer of their teeth. If they have weakened enamel, a fast and simple fluoride treatment can help build and protect their teeth.
It’s not uncommon for children to grind their teeth while they sleep. That’s why we also offer customized grinding nightguards to prevent them from damaging their pearly whites, facial muscles, and jawbone from constant pressure and force caused by bruxism.
Our team is more than happy to also offer some helpful at-home dental hygiene tips to encourage your child to take care of their pearly whites outside of their dental visits. This way, their permanent adult teeth can grow in to be happy and healthy.
