Dentist in Greensboro Stresses Why Teeth Cleaning and Preventive Care Is Important for Children

A common question parents ask dentists is when a child’s first dental appointment should be and if caring for baby teeth is essential. After all, aren’t they just going to fall out anyway? The answer to the second question is that early preventive care, starting from when an infant’s first tooth breaks through, is vital. Finding a good pediatric dentist that shares these values is something every parent should seek out so that their child can receive early exams and cleanings to keep their baby teeth in prime condition.

The Importance of Baby Teeth

Primary teeth, commonly called baby teeth, play several vital roles in a child’s developing oral health. Baby teeth not only make it possible for a child to chew their food and speak correctly, but they also play a pivotal role when secondary teeth are ready to erupt.

Most children will begin to lose their baby teeth around the age of 6 or 7, but it will take several years for all of these teeth (20 in total) to fall out. Most children will be around the age of 12 by the time the last baby tooth falls out. Seeing a dentist routinely for exams and cleanings, along with regular at-home care involving brushing, flossing, and rinsing, will help ensure that these teeth are healthy for the duration they remain in your child’s mouth.

Visiting the Dentist

When you bring your child in for a dental visit, their age will determine what exactly happens during the appointment. Generally, the dentist will examine their teeth for areas of decay, and they will clean the teeth. In some cases, they may apply a sealant to help prevent future decay. One of the more significant roles a pediatric dentist plays is to educate both parent and child on how best to care for their teeth properly. A child should come in twice a year or every six months for regular dental cleanings and checkups.
