Baby Talk (About Oral Health)

pediatric dental Carlsbad

Taking care of a baby can be exciting, exhausting, and confusing. (All within the space of an hour.)

You worry about your son or daughter’s safety. “Did I cover all the outlets?” “Are the medicines locked away?”

You worry about your baby’s development. “Is he growing on schedule?” “Shouldn’t she be talking by now?”

And you worry about your baby’s health. “Is it an ear infection or strep?” “What are those red bumps?”

Those first few years can be stressful. New parents are on information overload.

It’s understandable that some new moms and dads don’t give their infant’s oral health a second thought.

That’s unfortunate. Proactive preventative dentistry has a significant effect on your son or daughter’s health. Total health. Overall physical health. Oral health is not a separate entity.

Early childhood tooth decay is:

  • Rampant through the U.S.
  • Completely preventable

Has your toddler had a dental checkup? If not, now’s the time.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry counsels moms and dads to start dental visits soon after the first tooth appears.

We invite you to schedule a pediatric dental checkup at La Costa Dental Excellence as early as possible. We help new parents keep their baby’s teeth healthy and prevent future dilemmas.

Let’s discuss your little one’s oral challenges and make a plan to prevent decay. Dental sealants and fluoride supplements can help. We can discuss thumb-sucking, pacifier use, tooth eruption schedules, and other concerns.

We know you want the best for your child.

And so do we.
