Ages 5-12 are crucial for a child’s dental development: this is the time they’ll begin to lose their baby teeth, as their full adult set comes in. It’s important to instill good oral hygiene before this time, to ensure your child is properly caring for the teeth they’ll use for the rest of their life! Regular dental appointments include a deep cleaning, which helps remove plaque and build-up from the areas your child may miss when brushing or flossing.
Our staff will help to make sure your whole family knows the proper care for their “pearly-whites,” while also tracking your child’s oral development. Keeping up with regular appointments can determine the presence of underbites, overbites, need for braces, gum issues, etc. Schedule appointments every 6 months to not only care for your child’s oral health but also emphasize the importance of preventative care and dental hygiene as a long-lasting value in your child’s life.
