Preventive Dental Care for Kids
Preventive dental care is one of the best ways to keep your kid’s smile looking great and healthy for their whole lives. It’s extremely important to keep primary (baby) teeth healthy because they make way for the permanent teeth to eventually come in.
There is a common misconception that baby teeth don’t matter because they are going to fall out anyway. That couldn’t be more wrong! At KidSmile Dental we focus on preventative dental care that keeps smiles healthy for all the right reasons: your children’s health and happiness!
Fluoride is one of the most simple, yet effective treatments at KidSmile Dental. Fluoride is a natural mineral that promotes healthy enamel growth on teeth, in turn assisting in the battle against cavities.
Children are more susceptible to cavities and tooth decay. This is because they tend to eat more sugary foods throughout the day and aren’t cleaning their teeth as well as adults do.
While it is important to regiment their sugary intake and show them how to brush and floss well, sometimes cavities just find their way in. To combat this, we can apply a thin layer of plastic that will coat the hard-to-reach molars. Sealants are one of the most effective ways to stay cavity-free!
Establish Healthy Dental Habits
KidSmile Dental provides pediatric preventive dentistry in both Spokane Valley & Airway Heights, WA. While we encourage parents to begin scheduling their children for dental visits starting at age 1, we also know that healthy habits start at home.
The best way to encourage positive feelings for the dentist is to teach them the importance of dental health at home and make dental routines fun. If you need help establishing these habits, our team would love to provide you with the resources to promote healthy teeth and gums!
