Children Friendly Dental Office
We Do Pediatric Dentistry Differently
According to American Dental Association (ADA) the first dental visit should be within six months after the baby’s first tooth appears. A “dental Home” is intended to establish a place to discover and learn proper Oral Hygiene. We encourage you to bring your kids to your own dentist appointments. This enables them to see that taking care of their teeth is a lifetime commitment. Our Doctors in Victory Plaza dental group are experienced with kids and making the dentist fun. We encourage Mom and Dad to be present at all times while we offer some sweet prize.
OUR OFFICE ATMOSPHERE
It is our goal to provide you and your family with a great experience while providing excellent dental care. At Victory Plaza Dental our team of dentists focus on children, teenagers and their parents. As such, our office is decorated to give you and your children relaxing and SPA-like experience. In the waiting area, your child can play with various games, including X-box1, and if treatment is needed, you or your child can sit back, relax, and enjoy a movie directly overhead.
WHY ARE PRIMARY (baby) TEETH SO IMPORTANT?
A baby’s 20 primary teeth are already present in the jaws at birth and typically begin to appear when a baby is between 6 months and 1 year. Most children have a full set of 20 primary teeth by the time they are 3.
Primary, or baby teeth, are very important to a child’s early physical, social and emotional development. Baby teeth are vital, considering that they help with correct chewing and consuming, aid in speech advancement, and include in an appealing look. A child that can chew effortlessly, talk plainly, and grin with confidence is a happier youngster. Healthy and balanced primary teeth allow normal development of the jaw bones and muscular tissues, save room for the long-term teeth and direct them into the right area. When a baby tooth is lost too early, the permanent teeth can drift into the empty space and make it difficult for other adult teeth to find room when they come in. This can make teeth crooked or crowded. That’s why starting infants off with good oral care can help protect their teeth for decades to come.
WE BELIEVE IN EARLY BEGINNING
Cavities are considered to be the number one preventable childhood disease. In United States, 1 out of 4 children have cavities by the age of 2. It is essential to practice proper oral hygiene with your child’s baby teeth to provide a healthy atmosphere for their haw bones, teeth roots, and future adult teeth to thrive. Unthreatened decay can severely impact your child’s health and well-being. To prevent that trend and to prevent Early Childhood Cavities, our dentists will perform a thorough exam and discuss the importance of proper hygiene.
