From regular teeth cleanings to orthodontics, we’re here to help your children maintain healthy mouths as they grow.
The Importance Of Seeing A Dentist Early
Baby teeth are important! You can form good habits by starting dental check ups early. The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry say that the first dental visit should occur within their first year of age. It’s best for us to see you child early to assess their oral health, along with a number of other reasons:
- Ensure your child’s teeth grow in correctly – Your child’s primary (baby) teeth are not permanent. However, issues like tooth decay and tooth loss that affect primary teeth can affect the formation and development of permanent teeth. Seeing a comprehensive dentist early for pediatric care ensures that their primary teeth are developing correctly, and that their adult teeth will also erupt properly.
- Reduce the risk of developing dental anxiety – When children are familiar with their dentist at an early age, they’re much less likely to develop dental anxiety. They’ll understand the process, eliminating fear and stress. And because Dr. Collado and Dr. Carpenter focus on making the dentist a fun, safe place for kids, they may actually enjoy themselves at Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care!
- Form a strong doctor-patient relationship early – When you take your child to the same dentist over the years, they form a strong doctor-patient relationship. Your dentist will have a deep understanding of the previous oral conditions or issues your child may have had, and will be able to provide better care because of this knowledge.
