The health and safety of their children is the top priority of every parent. That’s why you baby-proof your home and buckle them tightly in their car seat before you pull out of your driveway. Their oral health is essential to their overall health, and they’ll get it with family dentistry at Allen Park Dental Care.
The condition of a child’s teeth and gums can affect their speech development, nutrition, and self-confidence. From birth, there are important things you can do to promote healthy teeth.
Of course, instilling good oral care habits at home is at the top of the list. It doesn’t need to be a struggle, though. We recommend you start by modeling the behavior you want them to have, and talk to your kids about how important dental care is to you.
Remember, too, that children’s dental care includes flossing. Even those tiny teeth benefit from cleaning those areas where the toothbrush can’t reach. We recommend standard dental floss for grownups, but there are special flossers for kids that are made for little hands, and can even making flossing fun.
We recommend bringing your child in for a first exam at Allen Park Dental Care before age one, or when their first tooth comes in. With family dentistry, we provide treatment to family members of all ages. We also provide cosmetic dentistry.
