Family Dentist in South Portland

As the family dentist South Portland parents trust, Dr. Florence Edwards and her team at Breakwater Dental enjoy seeing children of all ages, from birth through the teenage years. We’re here for all of your child’s regular cleanings, fillings, or other minor work. It is important to us that children have positive experiences when they visit the dentist. They then have less anxiety and therefore are more likely to continue with routine dental care well into adulthood. 

Dental Care for Children

We aim to develop healthy dental routines at a young age to last a lifetime. There are also certain dental issues that should be treated even in baby teeth. For example, cavities in baby teeth can still hurt and need to be treated. And, if that cavity harbors a particularly aggressive infection or bacteria, it could spread through your child’s mouth and cause additional cavities. 

 

Our team also recognizes when a child should see a pediatric dentist and we are happy to make that recommendation when necessary.  We are in-network with a number of pediatric dentistry offices in the South Portland and Greater Portland areas.
