Primary School 6 to 11 Years
When your child is in primary school, or between the ages of 6 and 11 years old, there are several milestones that take place. They include those within their mental and physical growth, as well as their dental development. At Alora Pediatric Dentistry, we understand the unique needs and challenges that children face at each stage of thier dental growth. As your primary school aged child takes over his or her own dental care routine at home, we will make sure they are properly equipped and educated with the best techniques for a healthy and beautiful smile.
Dental Care for Elementary School Children
Our Napa Valley office is prepared to provide a full menu of dental treatments for ages 6 to 11, including preventive cleanings, x-rays, fluoride treatments, dental sealants and tooth-colored fillings. We can even perform necessary evaluations for orthodontic treatment, as evidence of misalignment or malocclusion can typically be detected on a panoramic x-ray once the permanent molars have emerged.
Regardless of what your child’s smile needs during the elementary school years, we are confident we can address it. In fact, we take a proactive approach in pediatric dental care to ensure your child’s dental health isn’t a source of disruption during this critical period of growth. While we go above and beyond to teach kids about proper oral habits at home, we realize that there are times in which restorative work may be needed. If your child needs an extraction, cavity repair or other dental treatment, we are equipped to make their visit comfortable and relaxing. Our pediatric dentists are also trained to offer oral sedation for kids when necessary.
