When to schedule a visit to your Athens children's dentist

Dental care is something that every parent expects their child to need at some point. Ideally, a first visit to the dentist will involve routine assessment, cleaning, and education regarding oral hygiene. In order to promote healthy development, it is important to know when you should begin bringing your child to their Athens children's dentist.

Knowing when to schedule pediatric dental care can be difficult because you may hear different recommendations from different providers. At Athens TLC Dental, we are happy to start caring for baby teeth as early as three years of age. Because every tooth matters, have your baby's first teeth examined and cared for by our friendly, experienced dental team.

Early dental care benefits oral development

There are several reasons that dental care should begin as soon as teeth erupt. Ultimately, the goal of pediatric dentistry is to prevent problems that could cause pain and suffering. Bacteria live in every human mouth, even in infants. This means that your baby could get a cavity in his or her first tooth. By starting care early, we can identify risks and discuss ways to preserve the teeth and gums in the healthiest possible condition.

In addition to keeping teeth healthy, early dental care also sets the stage for long-term success because it enables children to have good experiences in the dentist's office. When a child does not see the dentist until a painful problem has developed, their impression of the dentist may be associated with discomfort. What better way to establish a foundation of oral health than by letting your child get to know their dental team on good terms!

With prevention the goal of early dental care, we may recommend treatments such as dental sealants to complement a healthy daily care routine. Sealants are applied to the back teeth in a quick office visit. No anesthetic is needed for this comfortable treatment. The liquid solution that we apply to teeth hardens very quickly and acts as a barrier between enamel and bacteria that could cause cavities in the deep grooves of molars.

The long-term effects of early dental care may seem a lot to think about when your child only has a few teeth. However, it is at this time when the greatest benefits can be gained.

"I have always been very nervous about dental appointments, but Dr. Mathew and her team were so gentle and caring, that by the end of my appointment I was laughing and having fun. I told my friends, I never had so much fun at a Dental appointment before and they wanted to see who this Dentist is. So I brought my friend with me on my next visit and he got to see how Dr. Mathew and her team go the extra mile to make it a caring and fun filled atmosphere. "
