Preventative Techniques Used By a Chandler Pediatric Dentist

Taking your child to see a Chandler pediatric dentist is the first step towards maintaining his dental health. The child will surely benefit from these first visits because the dentist will work with the child to prevent cavities and other dental problems from forming. That way, dentist visits turn into a method of keeping the child’s teeth healthy, rather than treating cavities and other tooth issues.

 

Risk Assessment

The first thing that many dentists do is conduct a risk assessment. This is where they do a complete exam and take x-rays of the child’s teeth. By looking at the shape and structure of the child’s teeth, the dentist can tell if the child is at a higher risk of developing tooth decay in the future. Children who have a higher risk might be asked to visit the dentist more frequently.

 

Teeth Cleaning

Having the child’s teeth cleaned by a Chandler pediatric dentist goes a long way towards preventing tooth decay. These cleanings remove plaque that your child probably can’t reach when she brushes and flosses her teeth. By going in for a teeth cleaning every six months, you can prevent tooth decay in your children.

 

Nutritional Recommendations

What your child eats has a great deal to do with how healthy his teeth are. A child who consumes sugary drinks and eats chocolate daily is more likely to develop cavities than a child who follows a more balanced diet. A major part of preventative dentistry is teaching children to eat properly. Following a healthy diet does beyond the child’s teeth, as it helps him to develop properly as well.

 

Regular Dentist Visits

When making an appointment for your child, you are better off to go with a pediatric dentist in your area. These dentist are able to better relate to children and provide a positive experience during every visit. Call Kids First Pediatric Dentistry at (480) 802-2200 to make an appointment for your child.
