When it comes to the care of your child’s smile, preventative care is the key to truly giving them a healthy smile for life. But what is the point of caring for a child’s teeth when they will only be replaced in such a short amount of time in their lives? A child’s first teeth are just as important to care for as their adult teeth, and in some cases require even further treatment than many parents may realize. That’s why your child should be getting regular dental check-ups for cleanings and examinations at your local South San Jose pediatric dentist. With the assistance of the pediatric dental experts at the Children’s Dental Group we can work with you and your child to care for all of their teeth for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
Primary teeth are the very first teeth your child develops, and their healthy growth is tantamount to the beauty and health of the smile they will have for the rest of their lives. Your child’s first teeth need to be strengthened by fluoride to insure that they last for as long as they are meant to, to insure that your child is practicing healthy chewing for proper eating habits. This is especially important in their first years of life, which is why your child should get their first dental exam at the age of six months when their primary teeth grow in. The staff of your trusted South San Jose pediatric dentist can care for your child’s primary teeth to insure they grow in healthy and correctly, insuring their permanent teeth will too.
Permanent teeth grow in after a child’s primary teeth, but that does not make them anymore important. A child’s adult teeth will grow in exactly where their primary teeth are. So if children teeth are not in their correct positions, their permanent teeth will not be either. Just like a child’s primary teeth, permanent teeth require brushing and flossing twice a day and fluoride to keep them healthy and strong. However, fluoride can be harmful in large amounts, so it is important to discuss your drinking water with your professional South San Jose pediatric dentist, as your tap water may already contain the healthy amount of fluoride.
