Pediatric Dentistry

We help children establish and maintain proper dental hygiene

Early dental care for young patients can make the difference between growing up with dental complications and having a full set of strong, healthy teeth. At Emerald Coast Dentistry, we help children establish and maintain proper dental hygiene, supporting their care through preventive, proactive treatment options. Dr. Erin Sutton and her staff offer comprehensive pediatric services for families in Fort Walton Beach.

Dental Services for Kids in Southern Okaloosa County

At Emerald Coast Dentistry, we monitor children’s dental growth and help young patients learn the proper techniques for managing oral health and building a beautiful set of teeth.

While primary teeth eventually fall out, they serve several purposes for children. Primary teeth hold a space for adult teeth to grow into, as well as help to build the jaw into its proper size. Additionally, primary teeth help children develop proper eating and speaking habits they carry with them into adulthood.

Dr. Sutton engages in proactive dentistry to encourage good dental hygiene and prevent dental issues before they can occur, managing primary teeth and encouraging the proper growth of their permanent teeth. Services for kids at our office in Fort Walton Beach include:

  • Exams and Cleaning
  • X-Rays
  • Fluoride Treatment
  • Sealants
  • Pediatric Sedation
  • Comprehensive Pediatric Dentistry

Your Child’s First Visit to Emerald Coast Dentistry

Children who see the dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts can ensure proper oral development throughout their adolescence and into adulthood. With the belief that building healthy habits as a child encourages optimal health in the future, our Fort Walton Beach dentist helps educate children about the benefits of appropriate hygiene. Through comprehensive dental examinations, Dr. Sutton is able to monitor the growth of your child’s teeth and offer preventive treatments to safeguard against common issues as well as promote lasting oral wellness.

Additionally, bringing children to see a dentist early in their lives can alleviate anxiety before it even begins. Forming this relationship in childhood can ensure they grow up with the confidence to receive the necessary dental care to have a long-lasting, dazzling smile.
