Focusing on family dentistry in their home office, Atlantic Dental in Chesapeake, VA would love to take care of your family’s dental needs. It all starts with early dental care when a baby’s first tooth erupts- and it never ends! Taking care of your family’s teeth is a lifetime commitment.
 
A child's first dental visit should be scheduled around his/her first birthday. The most important part of the visit is getting to know and becoming comfortable with the dental team. A pleasant, comfortable first visit builds trust and helps put the child at ease during future dental visits.
 
The teeth, bones and soft tissue of the mouth require a healthy, well-balanced diet. A variety of foods from the five food groups helps minimize (and avoid) cavities and other dental problems. Children should receive healthy foods like vegetables, low-fat yogurt and cheeses, which promote strong teeth.
 
If you haven’t brought your children in for a dental visit before, it’s time to make an appointment with the family dentistry office in Chesapeake, VA. Atlantic Dental will be happy to help you set up appointments when you call 757-436-3595. 
 
The dentist will thoroughly examine your children’s teeth and gums, specifically looking for any potential problems. Depending on the patient, x-rays may be taken. If there are any signs of decay or other problems, they will recommend treatment options for each patient and make notes of any conditions that may need future observation. Most importantly, oral hygiene instructions will be provided, along with suggestions for how to help you take care of your children’s teeth.
 
Twice a year, you should schedule a routine dental cleaning for each member of your family. During this visit, one of the dental hygienists will remove plaque from your teeth, especially from places where your brush can't reach, such as underneath the gum line and between teeth. They will then clean your teeth and apply fluoride to help protect your teeth once you leave the office. Family dentistry in the Chesapeake, VA office involves the total care of each family member’s teeth.
