Houston Pediatric Dentist
Caring for your child’s smile is important to their overall and dental health. At Pearl Dentistry, our team gives special attention to our smallest patients when they visit our office. Preventative care is the best way to ensure their growing smiles are healthy and they grow up understanding the importance of caring for their teeth and gums.
Preventive Visits for Pediatric Dental Health
As soon as your child’s first teeth arrive, they need care for those baby or primary teeth. The American Academy for Pediatric Dentistry recommends children have their first visit to the dentist within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. Coming to the dentist from an early age helps children feel comfortable coming in for their checkups and ensures their teeth are growing in a healthy manner.
Our team at Pearl Dentistry take the time to make little ones feel at ease when they visit our office. We understand how important it is for them to be comfortable during their checkups. We do our best to make each visit fun and interactive for children so they associate positive feelings with dental care.
Preventing Tooth Decay
One of the main concerns for children’s teeth is preventing and repairing decay to their teeth. This is not only important for their permanent teeth, but crucial for their primary teeth as well. Children have a set of 20 primary teeth by the time they are three and need to protect these teeth until their permanent teeth arrive. Their baby teeth help them chew and annunciate words while creating the correct path for their permanent smiles.
Decay can destroy primary teeth, causing speech issues and long-term oral health problems. If primary teeth are decayed, the permanent teeth that follow are more susceptible to decay. Protecting your child’s teeth from decay will help keep their smiles healthy and save money on future dental work.
