When Should I Start Bringing My Child To the Pediatric Dentist?
At Little Bee’s Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that the best time to begin bringing your child to the office is as soon as the first tooth erupts, or by the time your child reaches twelve months in age. Establishing a dental routine for them early will ensure they develop healthy dental habits as they grow. By having your little bees visit us early, we can also identify any potential dental issues and treat them before the problem gets worse. At our office in Lebanon, PA, we give you and your child the knowledge and care they need to develop great brushing and flossing techniques and bring enhanced nutritional support into their life.
Why Is It Important To Treat and Save Baby Teeth?
Many people don’t recognize the importance of baby teeth because they are temporary, but they serve many purposes in your child’s health and oral development. For starters, they of course provide your child with the ability to eat and speak properly, being their only set of teeth until they start to grow their permanent set around the age of six. By treating baby teeth, infection and pain from decay or injuries are also avoided. Baby teeth are also an important tool in the development of your child’s development of permanent teeth, maintaining a space to ensure the permanent teeth have a place to emerge when it’s time. By caring for your child’s baby teeth and encouraging healthy habits now, it’s more likely that your child will be prepared to maintain and care for their permanent teeth properly.
Why Come To a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentists are specialists in dentistry, providing care for children between the ages of 0 and 18, including children with special needs. In addition to obtaining a dental degree, pediatric dentists complete 2-3 more years of specialized training, preparing them to better treat the special needs of children and recognize problems with primary teeth. A pediatric dentist is also able to offer a more calming, enjoyable environment for children, getting them excited about dental care and providing education to them and their parents along the way! Overall, pediatric dentists are trained to give children the best experience possible and will guide them to be both comfortable and confident in the dental chair.
