It’s a positive thing when your child is naturally proud of his or her smile. It’s imporant to start early (really early) to ensure that your little one has a healthy and desirable smile for many years to come. Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale can help you achieve that goal! We provide the family dentistry that your child needs.
We always suggest that a child’s first dental visit take place as soon his or her’s first tooth erupts. An early checkup is the first step in preventing dental problems in the future and it also sets the stage for lifelong dental health. Our team at Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry in Lansdale always completes a thorough examination and advises you on how to help your child maintain effective dental hygiene at home, such as learning the correct way to floss and brush. Your child should always brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush and finish off by rinsing out the mouth with water.
We can also provide guidance on healthy eating choices that will maximize dental health and let you know what foods and drinks they should stay away from. For example, kids should avoid eating sticky or hard candies that can lodge in the teeth. It is also important to limit the amount of juice they drink, as the acid from sugary foods or drinks can weaken the enamel, setting the stage for tooth decay. Unlike broken bones that regenerate, once enamel is gone, it’s essentially gone for good. Fluoride can only help regenerate weakened enamel to a small degree.
With a gentle approach and the help of state-of-the-art technology, our team is dedicated to making even our our youngest patients feel safe and comfortable. If you’re in need of compassionate, gentle and knowledgeable family dentistry in Lansdale, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kevin Bass DMD Cosmetic and Family Dentistry. Call today to schedule your appointment. We look forward to helping maintain your child’s lifelong dental health.
