Pediatric Care 101
Many aren’t aware that the health of their baby teeth has a huge impact on the health of the permanent teeth that will come later. Equally, your children are at a much higher risk for tooth decay in their baby teeth – and their permanent teeth, as a result. That’s why proper dental care both at home and at the dentist is so important to your child’s oral and total health.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children should begin seeing a dentist as soon as their baby teeth erupt, or by their first birthday. It is important that you begin healthy oral hygiene habits with your little ones early so that they have healthy, happy smiles for life!
Preventative dental care is essential for everyone – especially your little ones. By starting good oral hygiene habits early and scheduling regular checkups with your dentist, you can help keep your child’s smile bright and healthy for many years to come. Here are our most common preventative treatments, as well as a few simple ways that you can manage your child’s oral health at home.
Healthy Start Clear Correct Straightening
Imperfect teeth are common if not expected for children, but can create many unseen problems, such as restricted breathing, eczema, and chronic swollen tonsils. Luckily, at Baker and Graham, we provide a simple, safe and effective solution to straighter smiles and healthier bodies overall – without braces or invasive hardware.
Regular dental care helps prevent dental emergencies, but nothing can stop the unexpected from happening. Here are some of the more common dental emergencies and what you can do until you can get to our office. If your child is in pain, DO NOT wait to make an appointment. We will be happy to see you as soon as possible. If this is an after-hours emergency, please call our emergency line.
