Pediatric dentistry is essential to have great oral hygiene for years to come. WoodSprings Dentistry parents trust our team of dental professionals to make sure their children’s teeth are taken care of. However, we go a step further and encourage good habits, ease fears of the dentist, maintain oral health, and prevent tooth decay for kids of all ages.
When you visit the dentist with your child, they will likely not need any invasive dental procedures at the first few appointments. Our dentists will provide children with information about their teeth that encourages good oral hygiene, preventing issues from developing in the first place.
Many children may fear the dentist simply because they did not get the treatment they needed when they were younger. If you can get your child to the dentist often early and regularly, they will experience much less fear when getting dental procedures done. A child should visit the dentist for the first time within 6 months after the first tooth has erupted.
One of the main ways your dentist provides pediatric care is to keep mouths clean and preserve and maintain oral health. Your child’s teeth can be clean and healthy as long as they visit the dentist biannually. When you are under the care of a dental professional, you can be assured that your child’s teeth will last for decades – possibly even for the rest of their lives.
When a cavity forms, it can eat away at the enamel of teeth and cause what is known as tooth decay. When you get regular treatment from a dental professional, cavities are detected early on and can be removed or reversed. When there are cavities present in primary teeth, the need for dental intervention is critical to making sure that permanent teeth grow in healthy.
If you would like to preserve the health of your children, then it is recommended that you schedule an appointment with our WoodSprings Dentistry professionals. By doing so, your children can have beautiful smiles that last a lifetime. If you’d like to learn more about how to maintain your children’s oral health, speak with our dentist.
