Children's Dentistry in Boise, ID
Visiting the dentist regularly is as essential for children as it is for adults, and that’s why we welcome children ages three and older to Ackerman Family Dentistry.
We know these first visits to our Boise dental office are essential for making your child feel safe and comfortable at the dentist. For this reason, our entire team works together to ensure your son or daughter has an excellent experience each time they visit us.
The First Visit with Your Children’s Dentist in Boise, ID
When your little one visits our dental office for the first time, we spend most of the appointment getting to know them, giving them a ride in the dental chair, and counting their teeth. If they feel comfortable enough for a dental cleaning, our friendly hygienist will clean their teeth.
We always move at your child’s pace, and we’ll never perform dental treatment they’re not ready for or comfortable with.
After they complete their appointment, your son or daughter can look forward to a trip to the treasure chest to choose a prize!
Boise dentists, Dr. Daniel or Dr. Robert, may recommend some extra services for your child as they grow, such as fluoride treatment or dental sealants. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens your son's or daughter’s teeth and helps to rebuild teeth that have been affected by decay. Fluoride treatment is easy to incorporate into their cleaning appointment, so you don’t have to make an additional trip to our dental office for the service.
Teeth have natural grooves and pits on their chewing surfaces that can trap bacteria and the acids that cause tooth decay. Dental sealants are a protective coating placed over those surfaces to protect your son or daughter’s teeth from developing cavities. Sealants are a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t even require dental anesthetics, and dental insurance often provides some coverage for the procedure.
Since sports injuries are responsible for nearly half of dental emergencies, our dentists highly recommend custom sports guards for kids who play sports. At Ackerman Family Dentistry, we can craft a mouth guard that is custom fit for your child and provides better protection than a generic store-bought mouthguard. Our mouthguards ensure proper fit and free-breathing that allows your son or daughter to stay focused on their game.
