Children are less capable of effectively taking care of their teeth due to their dexterity and their limited understanding of the importance of dental care and good oral hygiene. To help children become more aware of their oral health, Mercer Smiles recommends beginning dental care as early as possible. By starting early, your child will become more familiar with the dental environment and take their oral health more seriously.
Children are often prone to developing oral health issues like tooth decay. Cavities that aren’t prevented or treated can cause further issues, leading to the requirement of uncomfortable or invasive treatment. Mercer Smiles works with each patient to encourage good oral habits so that they can have healthy primary teeth and eventually healthy adult teeth.
Our dental professionals believe it’s highly important to monitor the oral health of your child throughout the years. Their teeth can change a lot, so it’s essential that your dentist be aware of what is going on inside their mouth. By keeping a close eye on the development and growth of your child’s teeth, we can recommend treatment for problems that may occur in the future.
To keep your child’s teeth healthy, visiting a dentist is necessary. Parents should aim to schedule appointments with a pediatric dentist at least twice a year to allow the dentist to monitor the child’s oral health status. With frequent exams and cleanings, your child can have a bright and beautiful smile that develops properly and remains healthy throughout their adult life.
