That is why at Waban Dental Group our pediatric dentist is highly educated and trained to care for your child’s teeth and gums. We recommend scheduling a consultation to learn more about our pediatric dental services today.
Importance of Pediatric Dentistry
It is very important for young children to learn that daily dental care and regular checkups are a normal part of life. In addition, it is important for them to look forward to these activities without any worry or fear. Our approach is very welcoming and reassuring. We want to help your child adapt to proper dental hygiene while offering guidance on at-home dental care.
It is highly recommended that children visit the dentist as soon as the first tooth emerges or by their first birthday. This helps establish normal dental care routines that will help maintain your child’s teeth and gums.
As they become toddlers, we will check to make sure that their teeth and gums are developing properly. Some children may need dental treatments such as sealants and fluoride. These options help protect the teeth from decay which occur often in young children.
Treating Tooth Decay
School-aged children almost inevitably develop cavities. This is a normal part of growing up. Regular exams can detect cavities early to easily treat them. Oftentimes, pediatric dentists will recommend dental fillings to treat the cavities. We recommend avoiding cavities by maintaining a healthy diet for your child. Avoid sugary foods and beverages as they are known to cause decay.
The teen years are the perfect time for straightening your child’s smile. Their adult teeth have all come in, but the jaw is still growing. It is easier to correct the alignment during these years than later. Fortunately, we offer orthodontic treatments to assist every child’s unique smile.
