How can I prepare strong dental health for my child during pregnancy?
A child’s dental health starts when you are pregnant. It’s very important for a mother to practice good dental hygiene habits during pregnancy to ensure that their child’s future dental health is the best it can be. Brushing and flossing regularly are vital to maintaining healthy teeth. Limiting the amount of sugar you intake can reduce the risk for cavities, as well.
How can I optimize my young children’s dental health?
Following birth, a child has approximately 20 teeth waiting to sprout. And whether you may be able to see them or not, they can be susceptible to cavities. Even if your child is less than a year old, it can be beneficial for them to experience a dental atmosphere. By increasing awareness of possible dental concerns, your children can learn and pick up healthy dental habits to secure healthy teeth for a lifetime. Our team is eager to help strengthen your children’s dental health through our family dentistry services!
Can baby teeth affect the growth of permanent teeth?
While baby teeth will fall out as your children age, it’s still very important to take care of them as they pave the way for future teeth. Should your child experience a cavity, we strongly recommend filling and maintaining it to prevent any future compromises for the permanent teeth that haven’t erupted yet. If you or your child is concerned for the wellness of their baby teeth, our skilled team of professionals can provide guidance and the proper care to ensure a healthy smile.
