Why Does My Child’s Dentist Insist on Taking Care of Baby Teeth?

Dental care is one of the most important things to watch out for when it comes to your baby's health. This is because your baby will be exposed to countless dangerous bacteria when staring to suck on teething toys, biting off pieces of food, and licking their hands and other items with their mouth open. As you can imagine, this puts your child at great risk of contracting oral diseases. Because of this, it is essential to bring your child into our clinic for regular checkups and treatments.

Regular Care is Key

You should know that pediatric dentists are a vital part of any child's life. Your child should visit us every six months to prevent tooth decay and cavities, which could cause pain and loss of a tooth if they are not treated properly. By visiting the pediatric dentist regularly and brushing your child's teeth twice daily, you can help maintain healthy baby teeth as well as avoid dental procedures that may cost you in the years to come.

Prevention

Taking your child to a pediatric dentist means that you will prevent gum diseases, cavities, and other oral issues they may develop at an early age. It also means that their baby teeth will be able to function optimally in chewing foods, which will help to improve their overall health. As a parent, knowing the importance of taking care of baby teeth not only helps your child, it also helps ease your work when it comes to cleaning your child's teeth and feeding them.

Baby Teeth Help in the Development of Permanent Teeth

Another thing worth noting is those baby teeth help in the proper development of permanent teeth. This should tell you that if you note anything out of the ordinary with your child's baby teeth, you should seek help from our pediatric dentist to correct the damage in their teeth.

Guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
A pediatric dentist ensures that your little ones receive comprehensive, long-term dental care. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists provides clinical guidelines about kids' dental care. Our dentist provides dental care from infancy to the teen years. A child's first visit needs to occur within six months following the first tooth eruption and no later than their first birthday.

Your child should also see a dentist since their jaw is still growing. There are changes occurring during this time of growth that can impact the eruption of permanent teeth. Moreover, kids should get dental sealants applied to the chewing surfaces of their teeth because these surfaces feature deep pits and grooves likely to trap bacteria, food remnants, and plaque. Sealants help prevent cavities.

Dangers Your Mouth Is Likely To Face If You Only Drink Bottled Water
bottled water
There are different sources of water available for you - from tap water to filtered water to bottled water. There are assumptions that bottled water is better, however, it has come to light that this type of water may not be the best when it comes to oral health.

Because bottled water is normally distilled water, there may be low amounts of fluoride or none. If you consume only bottled water, you could lack the fluoride doses needed for healthier teeth. Most bottled water contain pH levels of almost zero, meaning that they are acidic. You may not realize this from just tasting the water, but the acidic water can harm your teeth because it slowly continues to erode the enamel. While the effects aren't immediate, if you drink this kind of water daily for a long time, the difference may be noticeable. You can begin to get cavities much easier and even start losing your teeth.
