5 Reasons to Celebrate Children’s Dental Health Month With a Checkup

This February is Children’s Dental Health Month, and we want to celebrate with you and your little ones! At Green Leaf Dental, Dr. Yoni & Dr. Bean are always accepting new patients. Why should you come and celebrate Children’s Dental Health Month at our pediatric dentistry office? Here are just 5 reasons! 

1. Avoid Common Pediatric Dental Health Issues

Regular visits with your child allow you to avoid common pediatric dental health issues like cavities. Most kids end up with at least one or two cavities in their baby teeth, but you can avoid this with proper dental care and regular consultations at Green Leaf Dental.

With regular check-ups every six months, you can make sure you know about your child’s risk of developing cavities, and help them avoid tooth decay and other common pediatric dental health problems. 

2. Save Time & Money With Preventive Care

Filling cavities can be expensive and time-consuming. But with preventive care like teeth cleanings, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants, you can keep your child’s mouth healthy and stop the formation of cavities. In the long run, this will save you time and money. 

3. Prevent Dental Anxiety by Making the Dentist Seem More Familiar

We recommend bringing your child into Green Leaf Dental as soon as they get their first tooth or turn 1 year old, whichever comes first. 

Why so early? Because if you make going to the dentist seem routine and see Dr. Bean or Dr. Yoni from a young age, your child will become more familiar with the process, and will not feel as nervous or anxious about going to the dentist.

We can develop a real relationship with your child, and make them feel comfortable and safe during their appointments, ensuring they develop a good relationship with dentistry as they grow older.

4. Keep an Eye on Your Child’s Oral Development

During your routine checkups at our office, Dr. Yoni and Dr. Bean will check on your child’s oral development, and ensure that their teeth are erupting properly. 

We will also keep an eye out for potential orthodontic issues, such as baby teeth that are not falling out, narrow palates, and other common developmental problems. This allows you to get your child the treatment they need to address the issue and grow up with a healthier mouth.

5. Encourage Better Life-Long Oral Health Habits

Seeing a dentist from a young age can help your child develop better oral health habits as they age. Dr. Yoni and Dr. Bean can explain the basics about dental issues like gum disease and tooth decay, and help your child learn more about the importance of proper brushing and flossing.

By seeing Dr. Bean and Dr. Yoni regularly and encouraging your child to take good care of their teeth at home, you can build healthy dental habits that will stick with your little one as they grow older. You’ll be able to protect their smile for the years and decades to come!
