Children’s Dental Health Month is celebrated every February, and this is a time to acknowledge the importance of pediatric dental health and the steps parents can take to make sure that their little one’s teeth remain in tip-top shape throughout their entire childhood.
One of the most critical parts of early childhood dental care is seeing a dentist regularly. Routine six-month teeth cleanings and oral exams are key to maintaining optimal dental health. Here are just a few benefits of regular preventive care:
Tooth decay (caries) typically take quite a while to permanently damage your child’s enamel and become a cavity. Minor cases of tooth decay simply weaken enamel and do not cause permanent damage if they are taken care of before they progress.
Regular six-month cleanings and routine exams help prevent cavities because our dentists typically catch early signs of decay during these appointments. When we notice these signs, we recommend fluoride treatments to strengthen enamel and reverse the effects of decay. Dental sealants can also be used to protect the rear molars from cavities.
Your child’s mouth goes through a lot of changes, even in a six month time period. Keeping up with routine pediatric dentistry allows Dr. Yasi or Dr. Sal to track your child’s oral development and note any abnormalities or issues that may need to be addressed.
If you have a dental plan, it most likely covers preventive care such as oral exams, teeth cleanings, and x-rays for your children. Most dental plans cover 2 exams per year, so chances are that you won’t have to pay out of pocket for your preventive care. At The Little Royals, we accept all major dental plans and insurance. Call us today for more information and to ensure that your dental plan is accepted at our practice.
