Checkups Help Kids Learn The Importance Of A Healthy Smile

As your child grows up, they will have many questions about many subjects. When it comes to matters of oral health, you are not the only one who can help them. Our Shrewsbury, MA dentist’s office provides thorough pediatric dental treatment for our younger patients. There are important aspects of pediatric care that can be compared to the kind of care that adults receive during routine dental checkups. However, there are some key differences, one of which is that during an appointment with children, your dentist can take the time to offer instructions on at-home oral care, and talk about the importance of keeping teeth free of harmful bacteria. These instructions can help your child do a better job cleaning their teeth on a daily basis, and also help them recognize the importance of preventing cavities!

When Is It Appropriate To Dental Checkups For A Child?

.Typically, a child should start coming in for pediatric dental care by around their second birthday. By this time, your dentist can provide careful cleanings and reviews to help them avoid problems at an early age. Our practice can also use these appointments to check on their development, to make sure there are no early concerns that should be addressed.

How Is Pediatric Dental Care Different From Preventive Care For Adults?

Adults and kids alike should have access to professional teeth cleanings, as well as reviews to determine if there are any dental troubles that require restorative dental work. With that said, while adults can be generally clear on the importance of brushing and flossing, and on the threat posed by cavities, the subject of oral health care is new to a younger child. Because of this, we make sure their visits are informative as well as helpful.
