Taking Care Of Your Childs Smile For Life
Updated: Sep 29, 2020
Most parents are under the impression that since their children have baby teeth that are going to eventually fall out they do not have to see a dentist. We are here to tell you it is extremely important that you take your child to see the dentist at an early age. You may be asking why so young? Teeth can get decayed no matter how old you are. If decay is left untreated in a baby tooth it can cause an infection possibly damaging the adult tooth, maybe even to the point of needing an extraction which can interfere with spacing needed for the adult tooth. In our office we recommend you bring your child in to visit us at the age of 2 years old. We will show you how to keep their teeth clean with different brushing techniques as well as let you know how much fluoride they need to ensure proper tooth growth. Starting a good oral hygiene schedule now for your child will help ensure good oral health for their future.
