A child’s baby teeth may be temporary, but they still deserve dedicated oral health support. The health of your child’s baby teeth (also known as primary teeth) can affect their well-being, and problems could create trouble for their oral health development. Starting at the age of two, as their baby teeth have started erupting, you should bring your child in for professional oral care. Your dentist can check on their development, and offer guidance on properly caring for their young smile. A safe cleaning of their teeth will also be provided. Between daily preventive oral care and professional care from your dentist, you can make sure your child’s early smile is wonderfully supported.
Starting Dental Care For Your Child
Starting your child’s dental care can be worrying. After all, the teething process is already an uncomfortable one for kids, and you may have concerns about how they respond to this new environment. Your dentist will work to provide a gentle, welcoming environment. Making sure kids are comfortable can be especially important during these early visits, where they are still learning about why oral care is so beneficial.
Pediatric Dental Care Can Encourage Life-Long Positive Oral Hygiene Habits
Making sure your child is comfortable with dental visits at an early age, and that they have an appreciation for the importance of their oral health, can have long-term benefits. Good early experiences can make it less likely for someone to feel anxiety about dental care when they are older. These visits can also prepare your kid to take care of their smile on their own, making it less likely they will need restorative dental care.
