Great oral care begins in childhood. The good habits you instil during your child’s early years will not only help them keep a healthy set of teeth, they will be more likely to continue with regular dentist visits throughout their lives.
Good oral health is reflected in general health. Problems with teeth can have a profound effect on a child’s well-being and development. Poor oral health can cause problems with eating and drinking as well as pain or discomfort, which can lead to sleeplessness, fatigue, poor concentration, low self-esteem, and even a reluctance to smile.
By taking your child to the dentist on a routine basis, you will help them become familiar and comfortable in a dental clinic environment. Our dentists all have experience working with children and know how to be patient, gentle, and understanding with them.
Regular dentist visits along with limiting sugary food, drinks and snacks will not only help save your child’s teeth, it will help their general health and well-being.
