Early Professional Dental Treatments Help Young Patients Develop Strong Smiles

Written by Dr. Bentley on Oct 20, 2015

The American Dental Association recommends that pediatric dental patients receive professional dental cleanings and evaluations every six months or so. When a child gets the high-quality dental care that he or she need, they develop a strong dental hygiene foundation for life.

Today our Troy family dentists are going to go through some of the reasons that pediatric dental care is so important.

1. Learn health-boosting at-home oral hygiene habits

Our dental team will help your child learn how to care for his or her smile at home. We’ll review proper brushing and flossing technique, and explain why daily dental care is important. We believe that it’s vitally important to educate our young patients about their smiles!

2. Develop positive associations with dental care

Many adults avoid coming into the dentist because they suffer from dental fear and anxiety. However, people who have positive dental experiences as children are less likely to deal with dental anxiety as adults. So give your children the positive experiences they need to enjoy lifelong oral health.

3. Preventive treatments

Our dental team provides the preventive dental treatments that children need in order to build strong smiles. Comprehensive oral cleanings, fluoride treatments, and sealants can all protect your child’s natural dental enamel, and help to prevent dental cavities.

In general, at Excellence in Dentistry, we are focused on building strong and trusting relationships with our pediatric dental patients. We want all of our patients to know that they can come to us with any questions and concerns that they may have about their smiles, or dental care in general.
