In Mechanicsburg, we know children are the heart of our community. Darby Dental Smiles offers gentle and friendly children’s dentistry to ease your child into developing good lifelong oral health habits. As a general family dental office, we’re committed to helping patients of any age experience the same level of high-quality dental care.
At Darby Dental Smiles, your child will be immersed in dental health education, which is the key to a strong and lasting smile. We can make sure your child successfully learns brushing and, eventually, flossing. Our staff is dedicated to making the whole process fun and interesting.
The first baby tooth usually erupts around 6 to 12 months of age. By age 3, your child should have pretty much all of his or her baby teeth fully in place. We recommend you start bringing your child in for dental visits within a year of the first tooth eruption. Children are at a higher risk of cavities than their adult counterparts because of the amount of sugary food consumed and the inability to complete routine care themselves. Fortunately, regular children’s dentistry visits can reduce the risk of damage.
We also offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which will help make your child’s teeth even more resistant to cavities. Additionally, we’ll keep an eye on any developmental problems we might see through x-rays and make recommendations for orthodontic treatment if needed.
If your child is in need of a visit to the dentist, contact Darby Dental Smiles in Mechanicsburg, Ohio for an appointment. We believe in treating children as if they were our own!
