Parents and kids can have many different concerns on a typical day, but when it comes to dental health, you may be surprised at how much you and your kids have in common. People of all ages need to maintain good oral hygiene on a daily basis if they hope to stay protected against problems like tooth decay. This means good brushing and flossing habits are important, but it also means making smart diet choices. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we are happy to meet with patients of all ages and provide important preventive oral health services, which means we are ready to help everyone in your household maintain their smiles! We can provide consistent dental care for adults at their regular dental exams, and we can provide important services to kids during their pediatric dental visits.
People Of All Ages Should Be Concerned About Their Oral Health
Our approach to preventive dental care can vary to suit the needs of our older and younger patients, but people of all ages can benefit from oral care at the dentist’s office. After all, once a child’s teeth begin arriving, they have to worry about oral bacteria causing dental decay, just as you have had to worry about this concern through the years. We make preventive care easier for families to arrange, because we make it possible for you to bring everyone in your household to one location, and count on professional support from the same office.
Your Dentist Can Help Your Child Maintain A Healthy Smile
From an early age, kids should start to see their dentist. Kids tend to start brushing their teeth on their own at around age six or seven, but their first trip to see their dentist should occur earlier than this – once their teeth start to arrive, they can start receiving gentle preventive care. As they age, your dentist can provide instructions on good oral hygiene and even offer tips for maintaining good habits. When it is necessary to do so, we can address problems that form by safely treating teeth with dental fillings and other restorations. We also help kids grow up without cavities by using fluoride treatments and dental sealants to offer them extra protection against decay.
Why You Should Continue To See Your Dentist For General Care
You may have more practice protecting your teeth than your kids, but that does not mean you have nothing to gain from dental checkups of your own! If you go without preventive care, you lose out on teeth cleanings that remove tartar and lower your risk for cavities and gum disease. You also become vulnerable to the formation of a cavity that grows until your tooth becomes infected and needs treatment in the form of a root canal.
