Good Oral Health Starts Young
As a parent, you likely attempt to educate your children about the importance of brushing their teeth and taking care of their gums. However, there are additional steps you can take to improve their oral health. By introducing your child to certain orthodontic treatments, you could prevent the need for braces and additional orthodontics later in life.
At Pacific Dental Care, serving Glendale, Burbank, and surrounding communities, we emphasize pediatric dentistry to ensure that your children grow up with strong teeth. Once they lose their baby teeth, their adult teeth are all they are ever going to have for the rest of their lives. As such, it’s important to develop good oral health habits from the start. A pediatric dentist can point you in the right direction. Initially, the pediatric dentist can keep an eye on the growth of your child’s teeth and notice any abnormalities that might result in an incorrect bite. If those appear, the dentist can then take corrective measures to ensure their bite grows in normally.
