Dental care for children commonly focuses on the care of primary or baby teeth and preventing tooth decay. From routine cleanings to cavities and everything in between, we can handle it all with our comprehensive services.
Preventing Tooth Decay Starts Early
It’s never too early to bring your child to the dentist. We recommend scheduling a dental appointment for your child around 6 months of age or when the first tooth erupts. One of the main focuses of pediatric dentistry is preventing tooth decay. We provide routine teeth cleanings, and provide information to encourage your child to develop positive dental and oral health habits like brushing, flossing, and eating a healthy diet. One visit to the dentist at least every six months is recommended but may vary depending on your child’s needs.
Why Baby Teeth Are Important
Many parents ask us why dental care for children also includes taking care of primary or baby teeth. After all, baby teeth eventually fall out, so why take care of them? Primary teeth are important for a number of reasons: they permit your child to chew properly, help with your child’s speech development and facilitate the development of adult teeth by saving space for them.
