Title: The Importance of Regular Dentist Visits for Kids

The Importance of Regular Dentist Visits for Kids
Dental visits are just as important as annual
health checkups during childhood. We love
children and work hard to make their visits a
calm and pleasant experience.
Starting kids early will not only ensure
healthier teeth, but also make a visit to the
dentist a natural occurrence instead of something
to fear. Healthy teeth help your child to eat
without pain.
Strong baby teeth also pave the way for healthier
adult teeth when they come in. Keeping your
child pain-free isnt the only reason to bring
them to our office. Each visit provides benefits
that improve your childs overall wellbeing.
Keeping Your Childs Tooth Enamel Strong
Tooth enamel is susceptible to acids that form
when your child eats. Some children are born
with thin enamel that is more likely to decay.
We offer fluoride treatments that help strengthen
the enamel. Dental cleanings also help to
remove food debris and plaque before it causes
Preventing Issues From Early Tooth Loss
Baby teeth are meant to fall out. Until they do,
they serve valuable roles. A childs first set
of teeth helps them to practice forming their
speech as well as enabling them to chew their
food. A child who loses too many teeth may
struggle with getting proper nutrition.
Teaching Your Kids Proper Oral Hygiene Techniques
Learning how to brush teeth properly is a skill
that takes time. Flossing is also challenging
for many children.
Dentists can see the places on teeth that
children tend to miss. We point out these areas
to your child.
Then, well show them how to angle their
toothbrush to hit those spots. If your child
struggles with flossing, then well show them
easier ways to do it until they get better fine
motor control.
Identifying a Need for Orthodontic Treatment
Parents often wonder if their child will need
braces. Dentists start looking for signs of a
misaligned bite early in childhood. Two-phase
orthodontic treatment can begin around the time
that your child is seven years old.
Spotting Common Problems With Braces
If your older child already has braces, then
well keep an eye out for problems. Dentists
are often the first to see stains forming on the
teeth. Well also watch out for irritation on
the soft tissues of the mouth.
Building Confidence for Future Dental Visits
Children benefit from having many positive
experiences with their dentist. Dental anxiety
often occurs when children go too long between
Preventing major procedures with simple
treatments, such as a teeth cleaning, also helps
to alleviate fear. Each visit you arrange for
your child with us promotes a positive
Feeling comfortable with us as their dentist
makes it more likely theyll keep up their visits
as an adult. Children are open to new
This makes childhood the ideal time to cultivate
a relationship with their dentist. We recommend
bringing your child in for a visit as early as
For most children, this will be when they get
their first tooth. After that, well schedule
regular checkups that keep their teeth healthy as
they grow.
