Pediatric dentistry is important for various reasons including:
- Prevention of baby tooth decay which can lead to longer term issues when the adult teeth come in.
- Proper oral hygiene habits – It’s important to teach good hygiene habits early to kids, so they become familiar with the routine.
- Diagnosis of possible forthcoming dental issues – A properly trained pediatric dentist can see potential issues as soon as the first teeth erupt. This is an important step towards getting your child the proper care early to prevent bigger issues later on.
