Did you know that it’s essential for your children to see their family dentist in Gaithersburg every six months just like you do? It’s true! Children have their own unique dental needs, and it’s important for their dentist to be able to monitor their oral development.

Here are some other reasons children should have consistent dental visits.

#1: To Detect Tooth Decay as Soon as Possible

Let’s face it, children are not always the best at keeping their teeth clean. In fact, they need your assistance and supervision with brushing and flossing until at least the age of eight.

Your Gaithersburg dentist can detect concerns like tooth decay and cavities early on, so your son or daughter can have their teeth treated with the easiest and least invasive procedures possible.

#2: To Help Children Learn the Significance of Their Dental Health

Our oral health is connected to our overall health and well being in so many ways; it’s important that children understand this and learn the proper brushing and flossing techniques to protect their teeth and mouth. Your dentist and hygienist can help with education and demonstrations of proper brushing and flossing techniques.

#3: To Determine the Need for Additional Services

Services such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants help protect children’s teeth from tooth decay and cavities. Your dentist may recommend these services in conjunction with your child’s cleanings and checkups.

With consistent visits to your family dentist, they can also let you know when it may be time to consider orthodontic treatment for your child if it’s needed.

Is it time for your son or daughter’s next dental appointment? Dr. Daftary and Dr. Zaner love taking care of children and families at Lakeforest Dental Associates. Call us today to arrange a convenient time for your family’s dental care.
