If you are looking for an expert dentist who will be able to take excellent care of your children’s teeth, as well as your own, you will want to come in to visit us at City Smiles Dental. It is very important that your children’s teeth are well taken care of – even their baby teeth. Although baby teeth and not meant to stay in a child’s mouth forever, they do perform many important functions in the child’s mouth. For this reason, you will want your child’s baby teeth to stay in their mouth for as long as they are needed. To do this, it is important that you bring your child to come in and see our kids dentist for dental cleanings and other types of preventive dental care. Our Waterdown kids dentist will make sure that your children’s teeth stay healthy, and that your child has a fun and relaxing time at our dental practice.
It is often recommended that children come in to see our Waterdown kids dentist when they receive their first baby tooth or when they reach one year of age – whichever happens first. Children’s baby teeth not only help children thoroughly chew their food, but they also help young patients to develop clear speaking habits. Baby teeth also act as placeholders for the permanent teeth which have yet to arrive. Our kids dentist will make sure that your children’s teeth stay healthy by providing him or her with preventive dental treatments including fluoride treatments and dental sealants on back molars.
Dental cleanings for children are also very important in helping the teeth stay healthy. In order to have healthy teeth it is very important to have healthy gums. Dental cleanings will help keep plaque and tartar off children’s teeth which can cause dental cavities as well as problems with maintaining healthy gums. Since children’s teeth have grooves in them, and children are generally not able to effectively brush their teeth, they are very prone to developing dental cavities. However, with the preventive treatment methods that we offer as well as with the dental cleanings that children receive at our office, we are able to help your child’s teeth stay healthy. If you would like for your child to see our Waterdown kids dentist, contact us today for an appointment.
