Children's Dental Care Hudson Heights
Dental health care for children begins the moment they are born. Complete oral health care is much more than teeth, a strong and healthy gum line is just as important as strong and clean teeth to the well-being and longevity of their smile. Parents can begin their dental health care by simply cleaning gums with wet gauze or a washcloth to gently remove baby food to keep gums from plaque and tartar buildup. This can be done safely at home until your child is six months old. At this age your child’s first baby teeth begin to take shape and grow into their jaws, making them ready for their first pediatric dental health exam at your trusted Hudson Heights dental practice
Pediatric dental exams work to identify issues in your child’s mouth and genetically inherited problems which could give them difficulties later in life as soon as possible, making it possible for your child to avoid many of the painful and expensive procedures children often need to receive later in life for treatment of tooth decay and other problems. Recent studies have proven that by starting dental treatment at earlier ages, such as childhood orthodontics at the age of 7 instead of teenage years, your local dentist can provide care that is far more effective in treating their problems than waiting later in life, when many of these difficult become much worse. Early dental exams at your professional Hudson Heights dental practice
can detect genetic problems that could cause gingivitis, and insures that your child’s primary teeth are growing into their proper place and shape for permanent teeth to do the same.
