At Chichetti & Patel Dental Wellness, we are happy to treat every member of your family. In fact, there is nothing more special than when a young person visits our office for their first dental visit. It is always exciting when a child reaches a new milestone in their life, and we feel a first dental visit is one of the best experiences. The child is learning about the importance of dental health from a young age. Once the first tooth emerges, or around the time of the child’s first birthday, it is time to visit the dentist for the first time. If you are reading this and realize your child has yet to visit the dentist, that is no problem at all because there is no time like the present to schedule an appointment.
Does your child breathe through their mouth instead of their nose? Or does your child experience frequent ear infections, sinus infections, allergies, asthma attacks, or acid reflux? If you answered yes, then it’s possible that your child has an obstructed airway and poor facial development. We know this can be incredibly alarming to parents, but we are here to help with a solution. Read on to learn more about a pre-orthodontic treatment that can improve your child’s quality of life.
