The Importance of Pediatric Dental Care
Some parents don’t worry too much about decay in their child’s baby teeth. After all, primary teeth will eventually be replaced by permanent teeth, they reason. The problem, however, is that decay in baby teeth could mean a higher risk of decay in the permanent teeth. And if the cavities become severe, they can pose safety risks and harm the overall health of the child. Additionally, severely decayed primary teeth can lead to nutritional deficiencies if a child cannot eat properly.
Here at Southridge Pediatric Dentistry, we place great importance on taking care of children’s teeth from the moment they erupt. In fact, we subscribe to the American Dental Association’s recommendation that the first dental visit of a child must take place within six months after their first baby tooth comes in. Plus, taking your young kids on regular trips to the dentist will help instill in them the importance of proper oral hygiene—and this will likely lead to a lifetime of good dental health.
We will take care of your children’s teeth through the following services:
Led by board-certified pediatric dentists, our practice provides dental X-rays and oral evaluations to monitor the teeth and jaw development of your child and to check the teeth for any signs of cavities and other potential oral problems. We also provide pediatric fluoride and sealant treatment to lower the risk of tooth decay.
We provide tooth decay removal, white fillings, and other dental services that will restore your child’s oral health as early as now. Our dentists will also offer tips and advice to help you encourage your child to observe healthy dental care habits. This, in turn, will help to prevent dental caries, which will lessen the need for restorative dental services in the future.
With over two decades of pediatric experience, our team is warm and insightful towards any special needs your kid may have. If your child can’t calm down for a procedure, for instance, we will offer sedation and other relaxation techniques. We also provide hospital dentistry for patients that require medical care while having a dental procedure.
