Importance of Oral Care for Toddlers

Importance of Oral Care for Toddlers
Importance of Oral Care for ToddlersEven parents that go to all lengths to keep their children happy and healthy often forget the importance of oral care for their toddlers. It is exceedingly important for parents to bring their children in for regular visits to our Culver City dentist as well as understand some of the stages that their children will begin to go through while teething, losing their baby teeth, and finally receiving their full set of adult teeth.

Parents often neglect a child’s oral health until they begin to receive their adult teeth because they believe that baby teeth are simply going to fall out and have very little importance. What these parents may not know is that baby teeth serve a wide array of roles, including keeping the mouth evenly spaced for the adult teeth.

Teething can be a stressful occasion, but there are a few steps that can be taken in order to make it as pain-free as possible. Massaging the baby’s gums will often help to relieve the discomfort as well as the use of a teething ring. After speaking with the toddler’s primary healthcare provider, it may also be recommended to use a mild gel pain killer that can be applied directly to the gums for temporary relief.

Our pediatric dentistry services are going to be extremely important to you and your loved ones in order to have great oral health. Contact our dental practice today to ensure that your child is going to enjoy a bright and straight smile that is going to last a lifetime.
