Dental Care for children
Do you have a child under the age of three? If so, have they seen a healthcare provider yearly since their first tooth erupted? Recent research has shown that “baby teeth” are as important as adult teeth. Baby teeth not only help children chew and speak but they also maintain the space in the jaw for the unerupted permanent teeth. Dental caries is the most common chronic childhood disease in America. It is also a childhood disease that is 100% preventable. The American Dental Association recommends that all children be seen by a healthcare provider for a check-up, as soon as their first tooth erupts or prior to their first birthday. This early examination and preventive care will protect your child’s smile now and in the future. Oral health is an important part of overall health. For more information about the importance of your child’s teeth, please visit www.ada.org and schedule your child’s yearly dental check-up today. For more information call 629-5472.
