Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first six months of life. A check-up every six months is recommended to prevent cavities and other dental problems. However, Dr. Dinh can tell you when and how often pediatric dentistry services are needed for your child.
You should schedule a pediatric dentistry appointment to find out if your child has a cavity or if your child is experiencing symptoms such as:
Getting regular examinations with Dr. Dinh helps to find cavities when they’re still small and easy to treat. Plus, treating cavities means avoiding complications like tooth abscesses and broken teeth.
The early onset of tooth decay may only require the parent or child to be more diligent with daily oral care. In this case, Dr. Dinh will recommend flossing and the use of fluoride toothpaste. She also works with you and your child to develop healthy dental habits.
Pediatric dentistry is proactive in treating common childhood dental issues.
Dr. Dinh may apply sealants to your child’s teeth to discourage the growth of cavities, especially in new molars. She can also identify issues like tooth grinding before they cause long-term harm.
Pediatric dentists specialize in making dentistry as comfortable and fun for you and your child as possible to provide your child with a positive dental experience. This teaches them that dental care is a regular part of life and helps to prevent them from developing dental anxiety.
