A visit to the dentist can cause anxiety in even a grown adult, so it’s easy to imagine why a child might be hesitant to experience the traditional sights and sounds of the dentist. But Dental Care Acworth in Acworth, GA, isn’t your average dental office. We love taking care of kids’ dental health, and we are committed to going above and beyond to make sure their first dental experiences are positive ones.
Setting Good Habits From The Youngest Age
The American Dental Association recommends that children visit the dentist from the time they get their first tooth. It’s important for moms and dads to know that it is just as important for young children to receive regular, preventative dental care as it is for adults. Dental visits at a young age will lay the early foundation for a lifetime of good dental habits, which ultimately will result in positive overall health. Not only the habit of getting regular exams and cleanings, but learning the importance of at-home care. And mom and dad–you’re the best example for them to follow!
Cavities—Common & Preventable
It’s not uncommon to see cavities in children. Regular dental care is the best way to spot and solve them early with pediatric fillings. Trying to prevent them? Make sure your child’s diet doesn’t contain too much sugar and stress the importance of good at-home care. Routine brushing and careful flossing is just as important for children as it is for adults! Keep a close eye on how your kids are brushing their teeth so you can instruct them on the proper approach.
