Oral health is not only important for adults but equally important for children as well. Establishing good oral hygiene practices at a young age sets the pace for a healthy mouth and a lifetime of healthy smiles. Although children have a different dentition than adults, it is important to keep “baby teeth” clean and healthy. Our goal is for you and your child to not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but to prevent them. Routine cleanings and exams are just as important for children as they are for adults in prevention and early detection of tooth decay. Studies have shown that children who develop many cavities in their baby teeth are much more likely to have tooth decay in adult teeth.
WHEN SHOULD I START BRINGING MY CHILD TO THE DENTIST?
We encourage parents to start bringing their children to the dentist before the age of 2 in order to establish a dental home and to feel comfortable in the dental setting. It is critical to start cleanings early in order to develop good behavior and prevent issues before they arise. At Ferdos Family Dental, if your child is under the age of 3 you qualify for a free “knee-to-knee” exam, facilitated by the parent or guardian and one of our dentists. At this visit, we can meet your little one and start developing a positive relationship. During this exam, we perform a dental screening in order to determine when the time is right for your child to start receiving regular dental cleanings.
