Rocky Mount Children's Dentistry
We hear the tooth fairy is paying a lot more per tooth these days! Of course, she should, since every kid's smile is priceless. Our Rocky Mount, NC practice understands how important your children's dentistry needs are and provides soothing, gentle, and individual care that includes regular checkups and cleanings, as well as sealants.
From the time your precious little one's first tooth erupts, it needs special attention. At two, many children are ready for an introductory visit to Drs. Belton & Schrimper to meet our friendly Rocky Mount team and so that we can begin monitoring their oral development. By the age of three, your children's dentistry should become a regular part of their overall health treatment. Regular checkups and cleanings keep tiny teeth and gums healthy and hold tooth decay at bay. And at each six-month visit, we teach kids the importance of brushing twice a day and flossing before bed.
Even with regular brushing and flossing assistance from Mom and Dad, it's difficult to remove all the food and bacteria from the miniature grooves of small, hard-to-reach molars. For that reason, Drs. Belton & Schrimper offer sealants as a supplement to your children's dentistry treatments. Sealants can be used to create an impenetrable barrier on the tooth's surface, effectively stopping tooth decay, which is a leading cause of tooth loss in children.
We encourage you to arrange your child's first dental visit by his or her third birthday. However, if you notice any problems or have questions about the development of your child's teeth prior to that time, please schedule an appointment. Drs. Belton & Schrimper look forward to serving your children's dentistry needs.
We welcome new and existing patients to explore the many options our practice provides for a healthy, beautiful smile. From checkups and cleanings, to restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, our Rocky Mount dental practice can meet all of your family dentistry needs.
