As your child grows, it is important that he or she receives regular dental maintenance. Here are some of the benefits that receiving regular dental care can provide for children.
Prevent Tooth Decay
Even babies have the potential to develop tooth decay. The first teeth erupt at age 5-6 months. Sugars in milk or juice can contribute to tooth decay and damage your child’s teeth. Regular dental care ensures that your child’s teeth are professionally cleaned and checked for tooth decay.
Establish Good Oral Care
As children grow, they need to adopt good oral hygiene habits. At High Dental, we can help teach you how to instruct your child on proper brushing and flossing. We will also provide you with tips to ensure that your child’s diet includes the healthy foods that will help to maintain your child’s oral health.
Track Oral Development
As your child grows, the baby teeth will be replaced by adult teeth. By visiting a dentist, you can learn what to expect so that you can be aware of any problems with your child’s oral development, if they occur. It is advisable to bring a child regularly to a dentist from the age of 1-2 years so that they can be comfortable in a dental environment right from the start.
