Dental care has certainly come a long way. Gone are the days when ashes, ground chalk, and lemon juice were used to clean a person’s teeth. Aside from the various dental products that people nowadays can use, dentists from all over—including your trusted Poway, CA dentist—are constantly finding new and better ways to keep your family’s teeth healthy.

Dental care for children

Dental care can never start too early. That’s why the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises parents to start routine dental care for their children’s baby teeth by age 1 so that any detected problems can be treated early and prevented from deteriorating further. Even if they’re not permanent, baby teeth are very important to your child’s future dental health because they guide permanent teeth into position.

What happens without regular dental care?

If oral problems are allowed to aggravate, this can interfere with your child’s eating habits and keep him from getting the right amount of nutrition. They may also start to affect speech. More importantly, dentists warn that kids with dental problems like tooth ache and cavities may no longer be able to focus on schoolwork. Preventive dental care helps your child avoid the negative impact of these issues.

Say goodbye to dental fear

One major benefit that preventive dentistry provides: your child will learn not to be afraid of the dental office. With regular visits to the dentist, he or she will feel more at ease about visiting a dentist as time goes by. Dentists suggest that you schedule your child for a dental appointment every six months.

Parents are part of the equation

Dentists aren’t the only ones responsible for the dental well-being of your child. You as a parent play an equally important role in your child’s preventive dental care by instilling in them good oral hygiene habits. Teach your youngsters to brush their teeth at least twice a day for two to three minutes and be strict about it. Also, help them understand why they need to visit the dentist’s office twice a year.

With the right preventive dentistry steps, it’s unlikely that your child will have serious oral health problems in the future. Take him to a Poway family dental office you can trust and get the preventive dental care that he or she needs today.
