Building Foundations for Lifelong Healthy Smiles

A healthy smile is vital from childhood through to adulthood, yet maintaining it amidst a hectic family schedule of work, school, and daily activities can be challenging. We at Orchard Family Dental are dedicated to making your dental visits as convenient and stress-free as possible by offering flexible hours and the option to schedule back-to-back appointments for your family.

Dr. Merchant and the team at Orchard Family Dental are eager to guide your child through their dental milestones—from their first check-up to the moment they lose their baby teeth and when they get their permanent teeth. Eventually, they’ll even make the trip on their own as they continue their journey to maintaining excellent oral health. We look forward to supporting them every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend that your child visits Orchard Family Dental by the age of 1 or within six months after their first tooth appears, typically around 6 months old. If your child shows any signs of discomfort or you have concerns about their oral health, please schedule an appointment right away. It’s never too late to start dental visits.

Baby teeth are more than placeholders for adult teeth. They are essential for your child’s overall development, affecting their facial structure, smile, and self-confidence. Early experiences with dental health can influence their smile habits and confidence for years to come. Ensuring your child is free from dental discomfort supports healthy eating habits and positive self-esteem.

The length of your child’s dental appointment at Orchard Family Dental can vary depending on their specific needs and cooperation level during the visit. Typically, appointments last about one hour.

Children should visit the dentist as regularly as adults, which means scheduling a checkup and cleaning every six months. However, if your child experiences any oral discomfort, has difficulty eating, or shows any signs of oral health issues, we encourage you to bring them in sooner.

A cavity is a form of tooth decay that results in a hole that can grow larger and deeper over time. While cavities sometimes cause pain or sensitivity, they can also be painless. It is crucial to treat cavities early to prevent more severe problems, even in baby teeth, as they can impact a child’s oral health and development. Cavities are caused by bacteria, dental plaque, and are exacerbated by sugary and acidic foods.

Gum health is crucial because it supports the stability and health of your teeth. Healthy gums prevent issues like gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss, and are linked to other health problems such as heart disease and diabetes. Maintaining good gum health helps ensure overall oral and bodily health.

We know life gets busy, especially for families! At Orchard Family Dental, we strive to make dental care convenient by offering appointments that can be booked side-by-side for family members. Just call us, and we’ll find a time that works for everyone.
