Recently, we did a post on preventive dental care, which is important for enjoying good oral health. Today we’d like to focus on a similar service—dentistry for children. Like adults, children need preventive care. At Ryan Dental Group in Allen, TX, you’ll find help for both you and your little one.
When should my child start seeing a dentist?
Your child should see a pediatric dentist as soon as her first tooth comes then. Then, once your child is around the age of three, you can start bringing her to appointments at Ryan Dental Group. Going to the same dental office for checkups and procedures makes dental care more convenient, and turns visits into a family experience that will reduce any feelings of anxiety your child might feel.
Dr. Laura Ray is happy to help children prevent and treat cavities, gum disease, and other common oral health problems. One way she can help is with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Dental sealants physically protect teeth from bacteria and plaque, the ingredients behind decay and gum disease. Meanwhile, fluoride supplements strengthen enamel and decrease the likelihood of your little one developing a cavity.
Dr. Laura Ryan can also teach your child about brushing and flossing. This is important. When children learn healthy habits early on, they’re more likely to stick with them as they grow.
