What’s on your mind when it comes to your kids’ dental health, your children’s dentist wants to know? Are you generally optimistic, proactive, and feeling good about guiding your little ones’ oral health but you sometimes find yourself tripped up by a bit of confusion? Before you make any type of assumptions that cause you to feel on edge, we strongly suggest you schedule a children’s dental visit. A quick round of asking questions and receiving our answers will set things right again! For now, start with helpful information.

Development Varies From Child To Child

There are age ranges, of course, that provide a loose guideline that acts as benchmarks for development. However, these are not set in stone, explains your children’s dentist. If you get too specific, you may worry without merit that something is wrong. Remember that the best way to protect your child’s oral health and to enjoy the experience is to come in for visits and to get our word on what’s going on. Comparing your little one to other kids or stuff you read online won’t help.

When Does My Child Need Sealants?

If you are planning on placing dental sealants to further the success of your child’s preventive dental care, you may wonder when the time is right. Should you just do it when it’s convenient? What you want is to place them on permanent molars, which come in at two different times. First, when your child is between the ages of five and seven years. Next, when your child is between 11 and 14. See us as soon as the teeth show up, so we may plan to protect them, suggests your children’s dentist!
