It is very important to teach your children how to take care of their smiles. Dental professionals recommend that children develop good oral hygiene habits at an early age so that they will have plenty of time to develop good habits for keeping their teeth clean and cavity-free during a time in their lives when they should be able to focus on growing and learning.
In children’s dentistry, we strive to provide children with the tools they need in order to maintain a healthy set of teeth so that they may live a life free of pain and discomfort. Prevention is an integral part of this mission. It is well known that fluoride treatments are effective in supplementing oral hygiene habits and preventing tooth decay. In spite of the fact that fluoride is commonly present in drinking water, regular fluoride treatments can help children safeguard their teeth against decay. In the same way, sealants may be recommended to cover and protect teeth that are most susceptible to bacteria. Both fluoride and sealants are not a substitute for brushing and flossing on a daily basis.
We are happy to work with your child at any stage of development listed above. Contact us today to schedule an orthodontic consultation for your child.
In many cases, parents wonder why it is important to take care of their child’s baby teeth (or primary teeth) since they will only be replaced by adult teeth in a few years or less. Apart from the importance of teaching children good dental habits that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives, teeth play an essential role in speaking and eating. If a child lacks or has bad teeth, he or she may be unable to speak confidently or eat the foods they need for growth. Children who suffer from poor dental health are also more likely to miss school. Imagine how difficult it is to concentrate on work or to sleep well when you have a toothache!
When your child gets his or her first tooth, the American Dental Association recommends taking him or her for a dental examination within six months. Despite the fact that this may seem early, it is never too early to establish a positive relationship with a dentist. Moreover, children who have a good relationship with their dentist are more likely to be well-behaved during dental visits and form good dental habits that will prevent costly dental work in the future.
We can show you how to care for your child’s teeth at those early appointments. It is also possible to discuss matters related to dental health, such as fluoride and dietary choices. In the course of time, your child’s appointments will begin to resemble your own regular dental visits, with cleanings and cavity checks. In addition, regular dental visits allow us to monitor your child’s dental needs so we can develop a personalized dental plan for them as they grow.
