Dentistry for growing children!
Your child’s overall dental health plays a major role in both their oral and physical well being. If your child develops dental problems early in life, it can lead to serious issues further down the road such as: focusing in school, self-esteem, eating habits, and malocclusion requiring orthodontic care. This is why Children’s Dentistry is so instrumental for your child, and their developing teeth.
Tooth decay begins with dental plaque, a soft, sticky substance that builds up on your children’s teeth. Plaque is mostly made up of bacteria, which feed on sugar from food and drink, producing acids as a waste product. The acids attack the teeth and tooth decay results.
Regular checkups prevent tooth decay!
At Starbrite Dental, we recommend a dental hygiene and check-up every six months. Routine visits will start your child on a lifetime of good dental health. Remember that parental involvement is crucial for establishing good dental hygiene practices.
