The Benefits of Pediatric Dental Care
Pediatric dental care is imperative in order to start your child off on the right path toward lifelong positive dentail health. With early visits to the dentist’s office, your child will get a solid foundation for a healthy lifestyle and good dental health from an early age.
According to the Academy of Pediatric Dentists, the foremost authority on pediatric dental care, the number one chronic disease among children today is tooth decay. Our office is committed to helping you to prevent tooth decay and to keep your child’s smile bright and healthy.
Your First Pediatric Visit
Affordable Family Dentistry knows that a first visit to the dentist, especially for a small child can be difficult. Any doctor can be slightly frightening to a child. We take every measure possible to ensure that your child feels secure and safe on his or her first visit to the dentist.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists as well as the American Academy of Pediatricians recommends that your child first visit a dentist at about one year of age or as within six months after they get their first tooth. Starting early in your child’s dental health will serve two purposes. They will be more at home with the dentist and the office and they will be less concerned about the environment around them. In most cases, treatment at this age is not necessary and this allows them to interact with the dentist in a completely positive way.
