Oral care for children is essential because it sets them up for future success and health when it comes to their gums, teeth, and mouth.
Why are pediatric or children’s dental visits important?
As with most things, good habits start young. When you take your child to the dentist early on, there are many benefits.
First, they develop good habits for dental hygiene and are taught the best approaches for brushing, flossing, and caring for their teeth. Second, It helps them understand the importance of caring for their teeth all throughout life and sets them off on the right foot. Third, early dental care helps identify potential problems and allows for preventative care so that there are fewer issues later in life.
We educate our young patients, so they understand what to do, how to do, and how often. It’s more than just brushing.
Since we provide services for children’s dentistry, it also means we have an understanding of how best to work with such young patients. Going to the dentist can be intimidating and scary for them, but with the right people who know how to interact, we can help make them more comfortable with getting their teeth cleaned and receiving oral care.
What does pediatric dentistry include?
Children’s dentistry covers whatever your child might need. We educate on brushing and oral care, we conduct cleanings and check-ups, we provide examinations for detecting problems, and we inspect for decay and provide cavity fillings when necessary. Sometimes a tooth might need to be extracted, or wisdom teeth cared for. We provide comprehensive care.
How often should my child see the dentist?
The best practice is to have your child see the dentist twice a year or every six months. This allows for enough time between cleanings but not too much in case teeth shift, or a cavity develops. It also is close enough that they become more comfortable and familiar with the practice, and aren’t intimidated by the process.
