Dentistry for Kids
Instilling healthy dental habits in children can be challenging for parents and caregivers. Some children understand the importance of oral hygiene, while others take a while to understand the importance of brushing and flossing their teeth twice a day. Many children balk at the importance of avoiding sweets just before bedtime. If you want your child to learn good oral hygiene and have strong healthy teeth and gums as they grow, we highly recommend visiting our office at Smile Craft Dental. There your child can interact with our pediatric dental professionals who are trained to help children understand the importance of oral hygiene and teach them good dental maintenance.
Prevents Tooth Decay
The sooner your child understands how important it is to have strong and healthy teeth, the less likely they are to fall prey to dental problems. You do not need to avoid giving your children sweets altogether simply because you are afraid of dental decay and other dental issues. When you and your child visit our dental professionals, we help your child understand how to maintain strong teeth and gums. We even tell them what steps they need to take after they eat their favorite sweets.
When a child learns good dental practices at a young age, they often continue good oral hygiene as they grow up, even into adulthood. Small lessons, taught well, can help your child follow positive, healthy dental practices which will keep their teeth strong and their gums healthy for their entire life.
Instill Better Habits
Teaching your child how to maintain proper dental hygiene is important. For parents who feel they are falling short in teaching, our dental professionals are here to help. Helping your child understand the importance of good dental hygiene can be challenging, but it is worth the effort. We have a team of dental professionals who can help you explain in ways your child can understand. We will show them how to take the best possible care of their teeth, from brushing to flossing to visiting our office regularly for cleanings and check-ups. Our team is dedicated to serving you and your children and strives to make dental visits and oral hygiene fun.
When children are given proper instructions in a fun way, they tend to follow those instructions. Visiting our office for dental visits at least twice yearly, as well as your efforts to make dental hygiene a fun-filled experience for children, is important. One effective way to do so is to offer a reward for no dental problems at their check-ups and brushing twice a day for a specified time period.
Make Children Comfortable With Dental Visits
When you bring your children to us for dental exams, we focus on making children comfortable during their dental visits. We never want them to be scared but rather we want them to look forward to the experience as fun and fulfilling. When your children look forward to coming to us, they remember to prepare for their visits by practicing good dental hygiene in the long-term.
If you want your child to have strong teeth and healthy gums, call us at 650-880-1269 or walk-in with your children at Smile Craft Dental and we will help you make every visit fun, while we keep your child's smile healthy and beautiful.
