Pediatrics for Infants In Colorado
What Is Infant Dentistry?
Oral healthcare begins early and the ADA recommends that children begin receiving dental care as soon as their first tooth shows up, or at least by their first birthday. Infant dentistry includes assessing the baby’s mouth to make sure everything is healthy and giving parents advice for taking care of their baby’s teeth and gums.
Why Is Infant Dentistry So Important?
As soon as teeth appear, they are vulnerable to the possibility of cavities. It’s crucial to keep baby teeth healthy so the child can chew effectively, speak clearly, and feel comfortable. Baby teeth also hold the places for the adult teeth to grow in after them and are critical in maintaining proper alignment. The sooner a baby begins seeing the dentist, the more at ease they are as they get older and the fewer their dental problems. The dental professional team at Young Dentistry for Children will work with you to keep your baby’s teeth healthy and happy and help your child become confident and comfortable at the dentist. After all, good oral healthcare is a lifetime endeavor and an early start creates a lifetime advantage.
