When you need pediatric dentistry Antioch Premier Dental can help you take care of your children’s oral health.
It is estimated that about 75% of all school children worldwide have some kind of cavity. It may have something to do with the fact that the average American eats almost 25 pounds of candy every year.
Pediatric dentistry deals specifically with the dental health of children from birth through the teenage years. Pediatric dentists can treat children from birth right through to college and even into adulthood for those with special needs since they already know the patient’s dental history. We are a family oriented practice that is proud to help families like yours.
Pediatric dentists can treat your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth beginning when they get their first baby teeth. It’s important to give your children proper dental care. After they start to lose their first set of teeth, children need guidance in how to take care of their now permanent teeth and avoid tooth decay and mouth disease.
There are a number of treatments that will help your children grow up with a good oral health, including preventative techniques. The most important one is making sure they regularly receive cleaning and fluoride treatments.
By bringing your children to their regular checkups, we can stay ahead of any major problems and repair tooth cavities early on.
Orthodontics is another key part of pediatric care, to make early assessment for straightening of the teeth and correcting an improper bite. It’s never too early to begin the management of gum diseases and get your children to develop good hygiene habits.
Of course, we can also take care of any emergency dental injuries caused by sports or other physical activities. Our friendly and caring staff will help with any fractured or displaced teeth.
The most important time for children to brush their teeth is at night because of lower salivary flow and vulnerability to cavities. Lead by example and show them the proper way to brush. And don’t forget to introduce flossing into their daily oral habits.
Getting your children to brush their teeth can be a challenge but well worth the investment as they need to develop a good oral habit that will last a lifetime. Otherwise, they will end up with pain and more complicated issues as they grow older. Check out the friendliest pediatric dentistry Antioch has available to you.
