Why is Pediatric Dentistry Important?
A high standard of oral health is vital at any stage of your child’s development. Whether it’s their infancy, childhood, or adolescence, Pediatric Dentistry plays a crucial role in:
- Maintaining hygiene
- Encouraging proper development
- Keeping smiles sparkling
They may be temporary, but they still need to be checked out by a pediatric dentist. Even if your child has only grown one or two teeth, we still recommend scheduling your first dental visit within six months of the first one appearing. This way, we can keep an eye on them as they erupt and, if necessary, treat them for cavities.
You may be thinking that cavity treatment on a temporary tooth is unnecessary; after all, it’s only going to fall out soon anyway! But the truth is that decay on a temporary tooth can spread infection, cause your child pain, and even damage the adult tooth below it!
As your child’s adult teeth begin to erupt, it’s important that a pediatric dentist keeps them clean and tracks their development. The way they grow will be an indicator of any problems they may face in the future, such as crowding, gaps, or misalignment. If we find a potential issue, we can fix it before it ever appears. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
Your teenager’s teeth are fully grown in, but that doesn’t make regular appointments with your pediatric dentist any less important. We can keep your teen’s teeth clean and healthy, and even plan orthodontic treatment for any issues that may have appeared. A teenager’s life is full of difficulties and changes. Having a beautiful smile doesn’t have to be one of them!
