The ideal time to start dental check-ups for young children is when their teeth first erupt. This may seem a bit premature, however, it is the best way to start your son or daughter on the pathway to lifelong oral health. At La Costa Dental Excellence in Carlsbad, CA, we invite you to bring your pediatric and family dentistry questions to our committed staff.
We can evaluate the condition of your child’s teeth before problems emerge or existing issues get worse. We can also help you, well, brush up, on proper oral hygiene for your young children.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents begin dental visits before the third birthday. Children with an increased risk of dental problems should undergo a dental examination as early as possible, especially if they exhibit some common risk factors, such as:
- Sleeping with a bottle
- Drinking juice repeatedly during the day
- Abnormal tooth development
- Thumb sucking
- Tooth grinding
- A mother with significant tooth decay
- Other physical problems
If you have questions about family or pediatric dentistry in the Carlsbad, CA area, please give us a call at La Costa Dental Excellence. We want your youngster to enjoy a lifetime of oral health!
