Our young ones require our undivided attention. The trust built between your child and the dentist is the basis of lifelong quality dental treatment. The importance of the parents’ role in instilling regular habits and maintaining proper oral hygiene cannot be stressed enough.
From an early age, proper techniques for brushing teeth will prevent the accumulation of dental plaque and caries. If caries affects baby teeth, it is essential to rehabilitate them in order to avoid tooth shifting.
The first visit to the dentist should coincide with your child’s first birthday. Baby teeth precede permanent teeth but this does not make them less important. Healthy baby teeth safeguard the position in which permanent teeth will grow into, as well as reassuring proper jaw development.
An early first visit to the dentist is sure to prevent any deviations in oral health from the get go and ensure proper dental development in your children. If you are unsure of what constitutes proper dental care in youngsters, we will be pleased to advise you.
