Preventative Dentistry means a healthy smile for your child. Children with healthy mouths chew more easily and gain more nutrients from the foods they eat. They learn to speak quickly and clearly. They have a better chance of general health, because disease in the mouth can endanger the rest of the body. A healthy mouth is more attractive giving children confidence in their appearance. Finally, preventative dentistry means less extensive and less expensive treatment for your child.
Preventative dentistry involves:
- Dental development
- Oral habits
- Parent involvement
- Proper diet
- Sports safety
Preventative dentistry begins with the first tooth.
