To ensure your child’s dental health is maintained, find an experienced children’s dentist.
Of course, the dentist’s office can be a scary place for children.
Asking the right questions can help you make the most of your visit to the pediatric dentist’s office.
Here are some children’s dentistry questions to ask.
Ask about the dental exam process for children. Ask your dentist to explain the procedure, what to expect, and more. Find out what to expect at a dental appointment and plan accordingly.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends that parents take their children to the dentist at least once every six months. But, some children may benefit from more frequent dental visits if they have certain oral health conditions. Work with your child’s dentist to determine their dental needs and schedule regular checkups.
Children who grind or clench their teeth during sleep may need a mouthguard to protect their teeth. In addition, a sports mouthguard can shield the teeth during sports and high-impact activities. The dentist can help you determine if a mouthguard is right for your child.
Crowded teeth is a common problem kids face. When kids are young, their adult teeth start coming in. Crowding of teeth caused by the combination of primary and adult teeth can be prevented through proper prevention methods, including orthodontics.
Brushing and flossing are essential for long-term dental health. But many kids don’t brush and floss correctly, which can lead to problems later in life. Dental hygiene isn’t the most fun activity around! During your dental exam, the dentist can examine plaque buildup and evaluate your child’s brushing and flossing habits. They can then offer personalized advice on improving dental hygiene at home.
