The work you put into keeping your kids safe, happy, and healthy is certainly important. What is also important is remembering that you do not have to do everything on your own. You can find that your Riverside, CA dentist is an important person when it comes to maintaining your child’s smile health. Our office is able to meet with both kids and adults to provide valuable dental services. One advantage to bringing kids in for regular checkups is that we can provide guidance as they grow older on caring for their teeth at home. This can make them less likely to have problems later in life, and more likely to take smile care seriously when they are primarily responsible for maintaining their oral health.
When Was Your Child’s Last Dental Checkup?
Kids should see their dentist for the first time around when their first tooth arrives, or by their first birthday. From these earliest visits, we can focus on making our newest and youngest patients as comfortable as possible in the dentist’s chair as we tend to their needs. Even as we transition to more traditional preventive dental services, we can focus on both comfort and instruction so that kids feel more confident in their ability to protect their teeth.
Protecting Growing Smiles
In addition to providing the kind of care that adults receive during their routine dental visits, we offer a few extra services to help make sure that kids grow up without cavity troubles. This support includes treatment with dental sealants, which provide an extra degree of support against the buildup of bacteria and the accumulation of food debris. We also use fluoride treatments to help their teeth stay healthy and resist erosion caused by oral bacteria.
We Can Help Kids Learn How To Care For Their Teeth On Their Own
By providing instructions on smile care performed at home, by giving kids information on what can negatively affect their teeth, we can better prepare them to start practicing good oral hygiene habits on their own. The transition from having their teeth cleaned to cleaning their teeth on their own is an important one, which is why extra support can be so valuable.
