Building a Lifetime of Healthy Smiles

A healthy smile is crucial from childhood through adolescence and into adulthood, but we understand the challenges of balancing a busy family life. With work, school, and daily responsibilities, finding time for dental appointments can seem overwhelming.

At Wellesley Dental, we strive to make your dental visits as seamless and stress-free as possible. We’re here to support your family with adaptable scheduling and the option to book grouped appointments to accommodate your hectic timetable.

As Dr. Mang watches over your child’s dental health, they will experience numerous milestones—from their first dental checkup to the loss of their baby teeth, the emergence of their adult teeth, and eventually, attending appointments on their own. We look forward to supporting them at every stage of their dental journey.

Contact us today

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s ideal for children to have their first dental visit by age 1 or within six months after their first tooth appears, typically around 6 months old. If you notice any signs of discomfort or suspect an issue, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment. Remember, it’s never too late for a child’s first visit to the dentist.

Baby teeth play a critical role beyond just saving space for permanent teeth. They significantly influence your child’s facial structure, smile, and confidence. Ensuring your child is free from dental pain not only helps maintain healthy eating habits and dietary choices but also promotes a confident, happy smile that can last a lifetime.

The duration of a dental visit varies depending on the child’s needs and cooperation level, but typically, a session lasts about one hour.

A cavity is a progressive decay that forms a hole in a tooth, which can enlarge over time. Cavities can cause pain or sensitivity but sometimes may not show obvious symptoms. Early treatment is crucial to prevent more severe issues, even in baby teeth. High sugar and acidic foods can increase the risk of cavities, as can certain bacteria and dental plaque.

Just like adults, children should visit the dentist every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning, unless specific conditions suggest otherwise. If your child experiences tooth or jaw pain, tends to rub their jaw, avoids hard or cold foods, or shows other signs of oral discomfort, consider scheduling an appointment sooner.

We know how busy family life can be. At Wellesley Dental, we accommodate your family’s schedule by offering side-by-side appointments for everyone. Just give us a call, and we’ll arrange a time that works for all.

Oral health encompasses more than just teeth; it includes your gums, tongue, cheeks, ligaments, joints, bones, and more. Problems in any part of your oral health system can affect overall health. Symptoms like swollen, itchy, or bleeding gums may indicate a more serious condition.
