Your Dental Health Is Important At Any Age
From the time that a person’s teeth start to arrive, cavities are a cause for concern. Of course, young children rely on their parents for help preventing decay, but eventually this responsibility will fall to them. Adults can feel more confident in their ability to protect themselves against cavities because, simply put, they have spent more time practicing their oral hygiene routine. However, this does not mean that you should feel as though you have less cause to worry about cavities. Without access to regular dental exams, you can overlook a problem with tooth decay or gum disease until it becomes too serious to ignore. At that point, you may need more involved services to return your smile to good health!
Scheduling Pediatric Dental Visits
At around their first birthday, or after their first tooth arrives, a child should have their first appointment with their dentist. You can bring your youngster in for an initial review, which introduces them to the dental office environment and gives them a chance to meet their dentist. While it is important to ease kids into the experience of visiting the dentist, we can provide consistent preventive care when they are old enough, which includes guidance on how they should properly clean their teeth at home. As they age, we can use our time with them to evaluate their growth and alert you to any development issues that are concerning.
Make Sure Your Own Oral Health Needs Are Being Met!
While you can understandably feel preoccupied with the health of your child’s smile, make sure you do not neglect your own oral health needs! Adults also benefit from having access to preventive services on a regular basis. At your semiannual appointments, we can give you helpful updates about your oral health as well as your periodontal health. If you have issues that require restorative treatment, we can provide dental fillings and dental crowns that offer lasting support without changing your smile.
