Maine Family Dentist
Dr. Shilo Annis and the team at Mountain View Dentistry enjoy seeing children of all ages. When your child needs regular cleanings, fillings, or other minor work, we are your family dentist in Maine. When a child starts their dental journey without fear and anxiety, they are more likely to be vigilant with their dental care through life.
Your Maine Family Dentist
It is important to think about baby teeth as important as adult teeth. Baby teeth are very important, even though they fall out later in childhood. Baby teeth are place-keepers until adult teeth come in. If a baby tooth has a cavity, it can still hurt and needs to be treated. That cavity harbors aggressive bacteria that can easily spread through your child’s mouth and cause more cavities.
On that note, we understand that some children are really better served by seeing a Pediatric Dentist. Dr. Shilo and his team can help you make that assessment.
