Unfortunately, many children will develop problems with tooth decay and other dental diseases early in life. Still, these conditions are preventable with the proper professional care combined with an excellent oral care routine at home. When you have kids, one essential thing is to create a “Dental Home” for them and that is where we can help you!
Our dental team here at Dentapex all enjoy seeing children, and we love creating a dental home for them here in our practice. When children begin early preventative dental care, it can help give them a healthy smile for life. By seeing your child while they are still very young, we can begin to develop a relationship based on mutual trust with them.
One way we do this is by ensuring every child feels relaxed and comfortable during their visit, and we try to make it as much fun as possible. Parents also find these early visits very useful because we can discuss how to brush young children’s teeth effectively, including which toothpaste and toothbrush to use. As children get older, we work directly with them, so they learn the correct techniques for brushing and flossing right from the start. We can also educate children in other ways, talking to them about the need for a mouth-healthy diet and which habits are best avoided.
