Do you remember the very first time you went to a dentist? Hopefully, the answer is no, and instead you just have a favorable view of dental care. Unfortunately, many people do recall early visits to their childhood dentist, and this can be a source of nervousness or anxiety around dental procedures. It is why the team at Dayton Valley Dental Care in Dayton, NV encourages parents to bring kids to meet our children’s dentist team as early as their first birthday. This introduces them to a positive environment and allows them to enjoy the many benefits of pediatric dentistry right from the start.
Visiting the Pediatric Dentist
Not all general dentists are also a children’s dentist. As your dentist in Dayton, we do offer access to a children’s dentist, and this is because of the benefits of pediatric dentistry. Just consider:
Early experiences can create positive relationships and ideas of what a visit to the dentist mean. Our team is skilled at working with kids and our dentist has the training needed to provide the right level of care for emerging teeth and up to teen years.
Parental education is another of the benefits of pediatric dentistry. After all, do you know if your child’s teeth are coming in properly? How well are your brushing? Are you using the right toothpastes?
Head start on any issues. Another of the benefits of pediatric dentistry is that our team can alert you to issues that might affect your child’s oral health later. For example, teeth might be coming in too tightly or crowded, there could be signs of issues like fluorosis or discoloration, your child may even be a thumb sucker who is causing problems with their palate or their dental alignment. Our pediatric dental team can help.
As you can see, visiting a children’s dentist can do more than just introduce a child to the idea of dental care. Instead, our pediatric dentist will lay the groundwork for a life-long, positive view of dentistry and dental care. Your child will think of oral hygiene as a daily habit and this too sets the stage for optimal health and wellness.
