How Family Dentistry Can Help Your Child
Wilson, Greenville, Goldsboro, Rocky Mount, Raleigh & nearby areas
A recent study found that school-age children are most often targeted by bullies due to cosmetic issues affecting their teeth. If your child’s teeth aren’t developing into a healthy, functional smile, our Rocky Mount family dentistsare pleased to offer a number of services to correct new and ongoing issues.
Poor dental health can not only make a child the target of teasing by mean-spirited peers, it can also compromise their overall health, affect performance in school, and make them feel self-conscious and reluctant to socialize. Thankfully, dental health issues caught early in life are not only treatable but can lead to lifelong healthy habits and smile improvements.
At Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles, we see patients as young as 3 years old. Some of the dentistry services we offer for the whole family include:
- Exams and cleanings
- Dental fillings, crowns, and other restorations
- Orthodontic evaluations; teenagers might be suitable for discreet alignment of the teeth and jaw with Invisalign®
- Gum disease screening and treatment
- Personalized instruction on proper at-home tooth care
It’s not unusual for young children to be afraid of the dentist. As a family dentistry practice serving the Rocky Mount area for 40 years, our experienced dentists and friendly staff pride themselves on a personal, gentle approach to encourage trust between caregiver and patient.
