Going to the dentist can be a frightening experience for anyone, especially a child. Our goal at Mountain View Dental is to make a visit to the dentist as enjoyable as possible for children.
It is as important-if not more important- for children to have regular dental visits. As children lose their primary (baby) teeth and begin to get their permanent teeth, they must understand the importance of oral hygiene. Being proactive about pediatric dentistry from the start can have a profound effect later in life.
Important Oral Hygiene Habits We Help Teach Your Children:
- Proper brushing techniques
- Regular flossing
- Using mouthwash or fluoride
- Brushing twice a day
Tooth decay is one of the biggest problems for children. Sugary food and drinks can break down children’s teeth, especially when they don’t practice good oral hygiene. Our pediatric dentistry division at Mountain View Dental is focused on teaching children good habits for oral hygiene.
In February, we celebrate Children’s Dental Health Month, sponsored by the American Dental Association (ADA). This month-long event is meant to promote the importance of oral health in children.
It is recommended for children to visit the dentist every six months for a checkup and teeth cleaning. We also provide children with fluoride treatments and sealants, which can aid in preventing decay and enhancing the health of teeth.
