Your Choice of Kids Dentist is Important for Your Child’s Good Health
We instill in children the importance of good dental habits at each visit, because children’s teeth are prone to dental caries (cavities) for various reasons. Children often do not do a thorough job of brushing their teeth. We advise parents to oversee their children’s brushing and flossing to ensure they do a good job. Young kids tend to eat throughout the day (grazing). This results in more acid production (eating produces acids in the mouth) and can lead to more cavities.
Teeth that are not clean to begin with will also contribute to acid production, which can increase the risk of cavities. Healthy food choices and excellent daily cleaning routines reduce this risk. We also recommend one application of a mineralizing fluoride varnish to protect the teeth from decay.
Neuromuscular Dentistry is for Kids Too!
Kids can have overbites, headaches, facial pain, and breathing problems due to improper alignment – this doesn’t occur only in adults. Early detection and proper treatment in children is important to prevent additional problems later on. Correcting bites and airway obstruction focuses on assessment of facial development and skeletal misalignment for treatment with specialized orthodontics. We treat these problems when the patient is young so they do not have severe health problems later in life!
