Semi-Annual Appointments Are a Must
It is so important for your child to go into the dentist every six months or so. Even if your child still has all his or her baby teeth, this will go a long way in getting your child comfortable with the dentist. It will also help develop excellent dental care habits while also making sure teeth are growing in properly. Plus, even if your child still has all baby teeth, they can still develop serious gum problems. Children at a younger age consume a considerable amount of sweets and sugar, which will increase the speed at which teeth deteriorate and affect the gum lines. Deteriorating gum lines will cause problems with their future teeth, so seeing a dentist to avoid these issues is important.
Are Braced Needed?
Many children receive braces. When teeth grow in crooked it can cause jaw pains and affect other areas of the body. The earlier on corrective measures are taken for dental alignment, the less time it takes to make the needed changes. This way, your child will not need to have braces on for as long (and you'll be able to save money on the braces in the long term).
It is important for you to make sure your child's teeth are well taken care of. The habits you instill into your child at a young age will carry through with them into adulthood. With National Children's Dental Health Month in full swing, now is the perfect time for you to make an appointment for their semi-annual teeth cleaning. Your San Clemente dentist office of Shoreline Dental Studio is here for you and your family.
