Your child’s smile lights up your world every day; though it is no doubt as beautiful as it is cherished, is it healthy as well? Believe it or not, those little pearly whites need just as much attention from the dentist as adult teeth do. At Dental Expressions in Oklahoma City, OK, Dr. Holman and Dr. Frazier offer a comprehensive range of general and family dental solutions, including children’s dentistry.
The Importance of Children’s Dentistry
Tooth decay is the single most prevalent childhood disease in America; in fact, it is four times more common than early childhood obesity and 20 times more common than diabetes. Cavities, also known as dental caries, are caused by the acid-producing bacteria that accumulate on teeth and beneath the gum line. While brushing and flossing at home are certainly integral parts of any healthy oral hygiene routine, the only way to fully control plaque and bacteria is to visit the dentist at least once every six months beginning around the age of three or four. You may wish to bring your child to our office prior to this age, particularly if you notice anything out of the ordinary or have cause for concern. As always, our team is here for you and your family, standing by to answer any questions you may have about your little one’s smile.
During a routine checkup, our doctors and staff will closely examine each surface of your child’s teeth, inspecting even between teeth to rule out the existence of damaging cavities or symptoms of gum disease. We will perform a thorough cleaning as well, offering helpful homecare tips so you can maintain your child’s smile properly between visits. Our doctors may suggest fluoride treatments to fortify your son or daughter’s vulnerable enamel and sealants to help ward off tooth decay. With children’s dentistry at our family-friendly office, you’ll find everything you need to keep those precious little smiles looking and feeling their absolute best.
