We know it is very important that children have a fun and relaxing time at the dentist’s office so that they will develop a great attitude toward dentists and dental care. This can have a tremendous impact in the way they view dentists in the future; it will make them most likely to seek out dental care when they need it as an adult. What better gift is there than to give your child a lifetime guarantee of beautiful teeth and a healthy mouth?
It is recommended that parents bring in their children for Longmont dentistry for children when the child’s first baby tooth erupts or they reach one year of age, whichever happens first. Baby teeth play a very important function in your child’s mouth. For this reason it is critical that baby teeth stay healthy so that they can remain in the mouth for as long as they are needed. Baby teeth play three major important functions for your child. They act as place holders for permanent teeth, they help your child develop clear speaking habits, and they allow your child to fully chew their food for proper digestion. If baby teeth develop cavities, or if gums become unhealthy, baby teeth can fall out. If a permanent tooth does not have a placeholder for it, it may end up coming in in the wrong place or even sideways. This will cause the need for involved orthodontic work down the road.
