Young children count on their parents for support in many areas, and in many ways, but you are not alone when it comes to caring for their teeth! Our St. Louis, MO dentist’s office is ready to help you protect your little ones’ teeth by providing dedicated pediatric dental services. During the earliest appointments they attend, small children can be gently welcomed to the office, and they can be guided through comfortable visual exams and introduced to both smile care and their surroundings. When the time is right, we can transition to pediatric services that offer care that is more in line with general preventive dentistry. With that said, we still focus on making them feel comfortable and safe, and we can provide guidance to help them learn better smile care on their own!
Starting Oral Health Care For Your Young Children
When your child’s teeth begin to arrive, they face a threat that you yourself have to deal with on a daily basis. Cavity concerns affect people of all ages, and young children depend on their parents to defend against them. What you can do to help is keep up with cleaning their teeth and limit the sugar in their diets. You should also protect them by scheduling pediatric dental visits. These early appointments can be especially valuable because they act as introductions to oral health care, which makes future visits easier. They also help by keeping up with your child’s development so that any problems with their growing oral structures can be caught and resolved.
The Value Of Early Dental Visits
Early dental visits help children feel at ease in the dentist’s office. Dr. Johnson-G’Sell and our team can make sure our youngest patients have the right introduction to both our practice and dental care more generally. The initial appointments gently welcome them while carefully evaluating them for any early signs of trouble. Cleanings and other services that more closely resemble adult preventive care can begin when kids are old enough for them. By establishing good relationships at their initial visits, we can help your kids feel at ease when more involved care begins!
