The Importance of Childhood Oral Care
While oral health care is important at any age, it is especially beneficial to young children. Just as their bodies are growing, their minds are developing as well! This means they are much more impressionable and capable of acquiring healthy habits, such as proper teeth brushing and flossing.
When they begin visiting a dentist early in life, it becomes a part of their routine; they are able to recognize the importance of dental care and learn about their teeth and gums straight from their dentist! We also provide them with fun education and tips on getting the most out of their oral hygiene routine.
Some of the reasons this care is important for young children include:
- Prevents tooth decay & dental diseases
- Teaches healthy habits & cleaning techniques
- Familiarity with dental visits from an early age
- Support is offered to parents caring for their child’s teeth
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
You may be wondering why bringing your child to a pediatric dentist is so important when other dentists are willing to treat your child as well. While other dentists may do a great job with preventative care and maintenance, they are not adequately trained to work with children or meet their needs.
A pediatric dentist undergoes an extra two or three years of dental school to gain this qualification; this prepares them to:
- Take care of both primary teeth & adult teeth
- Recognize & treat common childhood dental ailments
- Utilize special tools and techniques for tiny mouths
- Make dentistry fun & exciting for children
- Team up with parents to advance children’s care
Healthy Smiles For Every Child
Your child deserves strong teeth, healthy gums, and bright smiles. With pediatric dentistry, this is much easier to attain. Pediatric dentists love working with children and enjoy preserving their smile health so they can enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Our team looks forward to caring for your children and will make sure they have an incredible experience at our office. When you choose Park West Dental for your child’s oral care, they will be looking forward to every dental appointment!
