How can we help you?
Baby teeth play an important role in your child's growth and development. Baby teeth have roles beyond helping your child eat, chew, and make an adorable smile. Without baby teeth to hold proper spacing in your child's mouth, the permanent teeth may not erupt into their proper position, leading to misaligned teeth and the future need for braces. This can also affect the growth of the tongue, jaws and airway. Although they are little teeth, they play an important role in your child's overall health.
The Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit around the age of 1 or within 6 months of their first tooth erupting. Finding a dental home at this age allows us to catch growth and decay concerns early in life, which can improve your child's oral health into the future. Our goal is to keep your child's teeth healthy and decay free, while teaching them important home care and diet lessons and developing a positive and fun association with dental health.
