Dentistry For Kids
Children need regular dental visits to ensure that they have optimal oral care at all times. When your baby is young and has not yet developed any teeth, they will need regular cleaning of the gums by use of a wet cloth. After developing the first baby tooth then you need to see the dentist immediately. Our pediatric dentist at Lone Pine Dental covers all this for you. The dentist will examine your child when you bring them in to us. The dental team will also guide you on why you need to bring the child in for dental visits.
Detecting Problems Early
Children are also affected by oral health issues. When you take your child to the dentist early on, it is easier for problems to be detected. Oral health issues are easy to treat when they are detected early. Baby bottle tooth decay might occur while the baby is breastfeeding and you might not realize the baby has it. The dentist can detect it and tell you about it before it hugely affects your child. The dentist can also identify crooked teeth of a baby before they grow and begin personalized care to straighten the teeth while still young.
Getting a Mouth Protector
Getting a mouth protector is one way to save the teeth of your child. As children grow they want to engage in sports and learn more about the sport. This makes them get exposed to more danger of damaging the teeth. The dentist will offer personalized care by giving a mouth protector commonly known as a mouth guard for sports to keep your child’s mouth protected. The dentist will be there to offer a care plan for the teeth of your child.
Dental cleanings are available in our dental office and will be offered to the child once you bring them to the dentist. The dentist can clean the areas that tend to be hard to reach for the child. Regular flossing and brushing are important to ensure that your child has strong and healthy teeth. Oral hygiene is observed whether the child has baby teeth or has already acquired permanent teeth. Dental checkups are important for the child and it is good to let the child start seeing the dentist when they are still young. This will help them have an easier time with the dentist in the future. They will have strong and healthy teeth as they grow up.
Our dental team at Lone Pine Dental is ready to check on the health of your baby’s teeth and even when the teeth have become permanent. Call us today at to book an appointment and we will schedule a dental visit for your child.
