Why dental care for young children is important

It is a common misconception that because children lose their “baby teeth,” they don’t need as much attention as permanent teeth. Even though a child’s first set of teeth will be lost, usually starting around ages five to seven, these teeth play an incredibly important role in several areas related to your child’s growth and development. Healthy baby teeth are important for:

  • A happy smile: smiling has been shown to have a number of benefits, and when your child is confident in their smile, they not only feel happier but also have improved social interactions

  • Learning to say certain speech sounds: teeth are important for properly saying several speech sounds, such as t, s, ch, and others

By regularly visiting a pediatric dentist from the time your child’s first tooth emerges, you can help ensure that your child’s baby teeth stay healthy and their gums remain disease-free. In addition, starting dental visits at an early age helps set a solid foundation for good dental health habits for their whole life!

Oral health in the tween and teen years

As children grow older and begin taking care of their teeth and gums on their own, regular dental care remains an important part of maintaining a healthy mouth. The dentist can show older kids how to properly brush and floss their teeth, remove any tartar or plaque that has built up, and answer any questions that they have about taking care of their teeth. A kid’s dentist also monitors for any signs of tooth decay, misalignment or bite problems that potentially need orthodontic work or other issues that may require additional treatment. Preventive treatments such as fluoride applications and sealants are also offered to help stop issues before they even start.
