Oral health is important at every age, from birth all the way until death. When we take the time to properly care for our teeth and gums, our whole body health improves. We can show care and love for younger generations by taking them to the dentist regularly and helping to teach them healthy habits. That’s what pediatric dentistry is all about!
A pediatric dentist, or someone who practices pediatric dentistry, is an oral health care professional who specializes in caring for the teeth of infants all the way through teenagers. They are well versed in the developmental stages of teeth in children and know how to provide the best possible care to children.
Should My Child See a Pediatric Dentist?
As soon as your child begins to sprout teeth, you can take them in to see a pediatric dentist. He or she will take a close look at how your child’s mouth is developing and can catch any issues or oral problems early on, saving your child from any future discomfort or pain.
Why Is Taking My Child to The Dentist Important?
Making sure your child visits the dentist every 6 to 12 months can help prevent discomfort in your child, save you from spending too much on preventable oral problems, and can help educate your child about proper dental care.
When you bring your child into our office, we will teach and encourage them to develop healthy habits that will extend well into adulthood. Plus, children who visit the dentist regularly have less anxiety about seeing the dentist as an adult! Help your child develop good habits and become accustomed to a life where they take the time to care for their teeth.
If you have questions about the pediatric dentistry care that we offer at our office, give us a call today! We’d love to help answer questions and address any concerns that you may have.
