Preventive Dental Care for Your Child

Exercising preventive dental care is important to avoid tooth decay, the most chronic childhood disease in our country. According to studies, children with poor oral health are more than three times as likely to miss school due to dental pain. While these statistics are alarming, the good news is that tooth decay is for the most part preventable. Scheduling regular checkups and cleanings for your child at the dentist is essential for maintaining oral health.

Beyond routine dental care, your Blue Coral Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics team will help you establish the best oral hygiene home care practice for your child to help maintain a healthy smile for their lifetime.

When to Visit a Blue Coral Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that parents take their children to the dentist as soon as their first tooth appears, or on their first birthday. Typically, a child’s first tooth appears around six months old. This may seem like a young age to visit the dentist but this visit also helps to establish a dental home that will ensure that your child will develop a healthy smile as they grow. This visit will help to identify and prevent any future problems or issues that could occur.

Children will benefit from dental care if they start treatment earlier. Primary teeth will eventually fall out but they still play important roles and must be healthy. Children can feel more at ease and less likely to develop severe dental anxiety by visiting a Blue Coral Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics dentist as early as possible.
