Caring for Young Patients in St. Charles, Washington & Wentzville, MO
Establishing good oral hygiene habits when children are young is vital to a lifelong healthy smile. At Rieser Family Dental, we’re a family of dentists with more than 25 years of experience treating the dental needs of patients young and old. We believe in creating a fun, friendly atmosphere so that kids develop positive feelings toward the dentist rather than fear or anxiety. With three convenient office locations—St. Charles, Wentzville, and Washington—our pediatric dentistry team is ready to care for the dental health of little ones in your life.
Experienced Dental Care in a Calming Environment
We know that anxiety or fear about going to the dentist can begin at an early age, often because of a scary or traumatic experience. At Rieser Family Dental, our team does everything in our power to make dental visits something your kids can look forward to. Young patients (and even not-so-young patients) have the option to watch a movie of their choice during their visit. In some cases, nitrous oxide sedation may be appropriate to calm the nerves. Patient comfort is truly our top priority.
Our pediatric dental care includes:
- Regular exams and x-rays
- Teeth cleaning
- Sealants to protect against decay
- Fluoride treatments
- Tooth-colored fillings for cavities
- Invisalign® invisible aligners
- Dental emergencies, like toothaches or broken teeth
Starting Children on the Path to Lifelong Oral Health
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children should visit the dentist within six months of getting their first tooth. That means most little ones should come see us by the time they’ve had their first birthday! We’ll be able to monitor for any early signs of decay or other problems, as well as expose your child to a regular dental health routine. As your child gets older, our friendly dentists and hygienists can help explain and demonstrate how they can care for their teeth and gums at home, setting them up for a lifetime of bright, healthy smiles.
