Children’s Dentistry in Boynton Beach and Lake Worth Florida.
The health of your teeth and gums can have a direct impact on your overall health. Creating proper dental care and healthy habits during childhood can help establish a lifetime of healthy traits and teeth.
Establishing good health and dental habits from an early age is not only a great way to ensure life-long behaviors but also to help avoid more complicated dental procedures in the future.
At Aberdeen Dentistry, we focus on providing a relaxing environment for children while encouraging healthy habits with them and their parents or guardians. This approach helps prevent the dreaded fear that many kids develop by visiting the dentist and provides a positive atmosphere and mindset for oral health that can last a lifetime.
When should children start visiting a dentist?
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, AAPD, a child should start seeing a dentist whenever his/her first tooth appears or at least no later than his/her first birthday.
“Baby teeth” are very important for many reasons and should be kept as long as possible or until they fall out naturally. They not only help children develop proper chewing habits and clearer speech, but also help develop a path for the permanent teeth to follow.
A dentist can check for proper oral development to identify any potential problems early. Additionally, socializing children to the dentist early in their lives can help set a routine and avoid stressful experiences later.
