Dentistry for Kids
Just like a pediatric physician, it's highly recommended to bring your child to our pediatric dentist. If you haven't already scheduled an appointment, drop in at Myers Park Dental Partners so our pediatric dentist could help examine your child's teeth and gums.
Make Children Feel Comfortable
Children are often scared when it comes to visiting a doctor. Our pediatric dentists understand how important it is to build a bond with children and make them feel comfortable. This not only encourages children to meet our professionals more often, but also enables our professionals to understand the dental problems of a child easily without putting them under any stress. Our offices are designed to be child friendly and we ensure that children have a good time when they step in. This makes them want to come back for the next visit with better, stronger teeth so they can get a treat before they leave.
Help Promote Better Dental Habits
Our pediatric dentists focus on teaching children the importance of oral hygiene. This enables the children to form habits that they learn at a young age and carry on throughout their life. When children are taught that dental hygiene is important and they should keep up with their dental appointments, this is something they follow even as adults. People who regularly visit dentists through their childhood are less likely to have any dental problems later on in life.
Maintain Good Oral Hygiene
Our pediatric dentists try to make oral hygiene a fun activity for children rather than boring. We also encourage parents to empower their children with fun dental hygiene products such as a cartoon toothbrush or fun flavored toothpaste. It's always good to mix things and spruce them up with children and also create short goals where children get rewarded each time the goals are achieved. This could be as simple as rewarding them for brushing their teeth twice a day, every day or staying cavity free for a month.
Assist In Proper Jaw And Dental Development
While some children are blessed with the perfect set of teeth, others might require our assistance to make them perfect. Pediatric dentists can identify dental problems at an early stage, and they can even suggest preventive measures such as braces or teeth alignment to correct them. The sooner the problems are fixed, the better it is since the jaw is not fully developed till a person reaches the age of 21. It's a lot easier to fix children's teeth than it is to fix an adult’s teeth.
Understanding your child's dental health is crucial. Children often shy away from telling parents what's wrong with their teeth and gums and this could result in major problems later on. Regular visits to our pediatric dentist can help prevent major tooth problems and help your child have healthy teeth and gums.
Don't wait for the permanent teeth to show up. The milk teeth are just as important. If you haven't visited our pediatric dentist yet or if it's been a while, pick up the phone and give us a call at (704) 332-2532. You can also bring your child in to see us here for an exam at Myers Park Dental Partners to show them our amazing kid friendly staff and office so they can see for themselves that they have nothing to worry about.
