When searching for a family dentist in Shelton, CT, you want one who will treat you like a member of his or her own. Dr. Michael Caserta and Dr. Adrian Basu of Dental Associates of Shelton are committed to providing a positive experience for patients from infancy to adulthood. Our family dentist in Shelton, CT, may recommend pediatric dental treatments to patients as little as one year old to prevent tooth decay or save and repair your child's teeth when necessary. Please call our office to discuss what options might be best.

How Often Should My Kids See The Dentist

Children should begin seeing a dentist at the age of one or as soon as the first tooth appears. Doing so can establish a solid foundation for oral care throughout their lifetime. You may wonder why it's necessary to start assessing their mouth this early. But it's valuable to address oral habits such as finger or thumb-sucking, which can negatively impact tooth position. Visiting a dentist twice a year is a good rule of thumb, but like models for most things, one size doesn't fit all. For children (and adults), the amount of dental visits required depends on your oral hygiene, habits, and health. If you're prone to cavities, periodontal disease, or lack oral care habits, Dr. Caserta and Dr. Basu may request to see you a bit more frequently.

Our family dentist in Shelton, CT, considers it a pleasure to rid adults and children in the community of oral diseases and create beautiful smiles. When visiting Dental Associates of Shelton, Dr. Michael Caserta, and Dr. Adrian Basu focus on the unique needs of every patient, regardless of age. If your child plays sports, we offer custom mouth-guards to protect their teeth from injury, or if teeth require straightening, both dentists can answer any orthodontic questions or concerns you (or your child) may have. Please call (203) 924-4115 to schedule an appointment with our Shelton, CT, family dentist.

Good oral hygiene is essential for a healthy smile, but regular visits to a family dentist are just as important. Your Shelton, CT, family dentists, Dr. Michael Caserta and Dr. Adrian Basu of Dental Associates of Shelton, offer the treatments and services you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Why it makes sense to choose a family dentist

Visiting a family dentist offers many advantages, including these important benefits:

  • Care for the Entire Family: Family dentists don't have any age restrictions for their patients. They provide care for toddlers, children, teens, adults, and senior citizens and are familiar with dental issues that occur throughout your life.
  • Convenience: When your entire family visits the same Shelton, CT, dental office, you'll spend less time driving to appointments and can schedule a group checkup for everyone in your household.
  • Better Oral Health: Your dentist can spot cavities long before you're aware you have a problem. Without prompt treatment, tooth decay could destroy much of your tooth and even cause an infection in your tooth pulp. Your dentist offers fillings and other treatments that protect your teeth and gums. Dental cleanings, an important part of every checkup, remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. These substances play a role in tooth decay and gum disease. Fortunately, regular visits help you reduce your risk of both issues.
  • The Latest Cosmetic Treatments: Your dentist offers a variety of treatments designed to improve the appearance and function of your teeth. They can repair or strengthen a damaged or weak tooth with a dental crown, improve the shape of a twisted tooth with a veneer, brighten your smile with teeth whitening, or restore a missing tooth with a dental implant.
  • Friendly, Knowledgeable Staff: Your dentists and their staff are committed to making dental visits positive experiences for you and your entire family. They'll explain treatment options, help you improve your oral hygiene, and check with your dental insurance company regarding coverage for procedures and treatments.
