Dr. Vernon Sheen is a family dentist in Annapolis, MD who cares about your entire family’s dental needs. We see patients of all ages, including children whose primary teeth have come in or erupted. While a pediatric dental office typically sees young children, Dr. Sheen is a dentist that can grow with a child into adulthood.
Many parents enjoy the convenience of bringing their entire family to one office for dental visits. This also allows the child to see the parent being treated by the same people that will treat them. This should help ease any fears or anxiety.
Dentistry for children is very important to Dr. Sheen. Establishing healthy habits at an early age can help to lay the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Our staff makes every effort to ensure the comfort and safety of our young patients, helping them to develop confidence in their oral hygiene habits and to feel comfortable when they visit with us for routine care. Our goal is to alleviate the stress and anxiety often associated with dental care.
Preventing Tooth Decay in Children
One of the biggest challenges in children’s dentistry is preventing tooth decay. With routine visits to the dentist, Dr. Sheen is able to prevent tooth decay and subsequent dental cavities. The best way to tackle tooth decay is by stopping the problems before they develop and by treating the decay as soon as it is discovered. It is recommended that children visit their dentist at least every six months.
We also offer dental sealants for children to protect teeth and prevent decay. Dr. Sheen will monitor the development of your child’s teeth and bite, recommending appropriate care as needed to set the stage for long-term dental health. We offer Invisalign for mild to moderate cosmetic and bite concerns and recommend using a custom-made sports mouth guard for anyone participating in contact sports.
The Importance of Dental Education
Encouraging and teaching young patients how to maintain good dental health has many long-term benefits. A healthy smile promotes confidence and also supports good overall health and well-being. It all starts with early visits to the dentist. At each visit, we will spend a significant amount of time teaching your child how to care for mouth, teeth, and gums.
We will show them the proper method for brushing and flossing and how they should avoid too much sugar. Encouraging positive habits that will benefit their oral health is something that will help them keep a healthy smile for a lifetime.
