Posted on 04/05/2022

Every parent can worry about their child’s physical health, but many forget the importance of their child’s oral health. Starting your child on a good oral hygiene regime is a good step, but having them go to dental visits is even better. At Gentle Smiles of Colorado, we strive to bring comprehensive pediatric dental care that is restorative and preventative to children’s oral health. If you’re a parent that is looking to start getting their child dental care, here is what you need to know about the benefits of early dental care.

4 Benefits of Visiting a Pediatric Dentists

  • Disease Prevention- Children's teeth are just as much susceptible to tooth decay as adults are. Even though baby teeth will eventually fall out, it’s important to keep their teeth disease-free. Baby teeth need to stay healthy and strong so that their permanent teeth will grow fully developed. Besides monitoring their teeth, our practice can also perform measures to protect teeth through topical fluoride applications and sealants. Our doctors will also discuss how to prevent cavities by developing a daily oral hygiene regime for your kids.
  • Bite Development- By having your child go to the dentist, they will be able to monitor and evaluate your child’s bite development and alignment. They can see whether or not a child's teeth are erupting properly. If not, they can take measures to lessen the impact of developing malocclusions. Early intervention can lessen the extent and cost of later orthodontic treatment. They may also refer you to a pediatric orthodontist to provide early orthodontic care for your child.
  • Develop Good Oral Habits- Children develop habits in their early years. Their pediatric dentist will teach them healthy dental practices to promote oral hygiene and prevent dental diseases. Periodic dental visits are a great way to let your kid learn the correct way to use a toothbrush, floss properly, and take a proactive role in their oral care. Their dentist can also address other issues like teething and teeth grinding.
  • Prevent Accidents- Young toddlers can suffer from mouth injuries, such as from falling while playing or learning how to walk. And if they're active in sports, you’ll want them to protect their mouth. Their dentists can advise you and your child on how to prevent accidents and help create custom mouth guards for your young athlete.
