Children Dentistry Ormond

Good oral habits, when introduced at a young age in children, contribute to a healthy life and good oral health in the future. With junk food taking the front seat in our lives, we must teach our little ones to take care of their teeth and mouth. At Ormond Dental, we welcome patients of all ages, including children. Our dentists are incredibly gentle and compassionate when it comes to treating children. You can rely on us to provide them with good oral care in a hygienic and safe atmosphere.

Importance of Child Dentistry

Oral diseases are painful. They can cause other health issues too. Children tend to stick to the good oral habits that were taught to them, even when they grow up. You must begin gentle oral hygiene when your child is a baby, as soon as they get their first tooth. By the time they are toddlers, they will follow them habitually. You must help and supervise them till they are 7 or 8 eight years to ensure the oral care regime is followed.

Oral Care Must Begin With Their Milk Teeth

A common misconception about milk teeth is that they don’t require care or maintenance because they are going to fall off eventually. However, milk teeth play an essential role in the oral health of children. Ignoring oral care for milk teeth can cause various oral issues. 

Here Is Why Milk Teeth Are Significant For Children

1. Creates Space for Permanent Teeth

Milk teeth set the foundation for the permanent tooth to come out in the right direction and in due course, develop a proper jaw. The permanent teeth sit beneath them, waiting for the correct time to erupt. If poor oral health causes the milk teeth to fall early, the child may have the problem of crowded teeth. Some children may also have to face delayed formation of permanent teeth.

2. Speech Development

Teeth help in the formation of words by controlling the airflow of the mouth. Without milk teeth, it wouldn’t be possible for them to speak any words.

3. Chewing

Digestion begins at the mouth! For food to be digested properly, it should be chewed before swallowing and sent to the stomach for digestion. Adequately chewed food allows the absorption of nutrition in a better way. A healthy set of milk teeth will help the child eat and digest their food. Good digestion of food promotes overall good health.

When Should I Bring My Child for their First Dental Check-up?

Our dentists at Ormond Dental recommend that you bring your child for a regular check-up when they are getting their milk teeth. Our dentists are gentle, caring, and trained to take care of the little ones during their visit. They also share essential tips with parents to guide them to take good care of their child’s oral health.

Timely dental check-ups help prevent serious oral issues such as tooth decay, plaque, cavities, etc. Treating these issues at an early age or that, as recommended by our excellent dentists, will help your child have a healthy set of teeth and an improved smile

How Often Should the Children Come for Dental Check-Ups?

Our dentists at Ormond Dental recommend dental visits once every six months. Regular check-ups keep oral issues at bay. Dentists at our clinic are experts and immediately detect symptoms of oral issues that may later become more problematic for the child. 

Till they reach the age of six, regular dental visits are recommended, with treatments only if required. Our dentists recommend an X-ray at this stage to check their complete jaw structure. We maintain low radiation levels that are safe and recommended for child dentistry. An X-ray gives a much clearer picture of their mouth that helps our dentists effectively diagnose problems if any.

At Ormond Dental, we ensure every child has a comfortable and friendly experience with our staff and dentists.
