Oral hygiene doesn’t happen overnight. It’s something that needs to be worked on daily and slowly built up over time. You won’t see major results from a single night of vigorous brushing. Therefore, it’s essential that proper dental care and healthy habits be established as early as possible in life, as this will set you up for success down the road.
Dentists Aren’t Scary!
Younger children may consider a visit to the dentist to be somewhat of a dreaded event. Centennial Smiles takes great care in putting all of our patients at ease, whether they’re young or old. We encourage parents to come in with their children on their first appointment so everyone can become acquainted. The last thing we wish to do is to cause any discomfort or affirm any fears that your child may have. Instead, we hope for this first appointment to be somewhat of a learning experience and help to tear down the stigma around a dental checkup.
Benefits of Early Dental Care
Having a dental checkup early on allows us to catch any problems or issues immediately and address them right then and there. Such problems may be easily fixed at younger ages, but can get harder to treat if left until the patient is older. The sooner these things are noticed, the more time we have to deal with it and come up with an effective treatment plan. Another important aspect of an early visit to the dentist is helping educate your child on the importance of dental care. Developing proper brushing habits and oral hygiene routines needs to start early, and can do wonders for your smile many years down the line. Centennial Smiles is happy to see your newborn once their first teeth start coming in. Although baby teeth are eventually lost, they still are crucial in determining the positioning of adult teeth, and also play a role in how your child chews and speaks. These are all important things to consider during that first visit.
A healthy smile is a lifelong commitment, and requires constant care. Your health is the most precious asset you have, and you want to make sure you’re taking care of yourself! Centennial Smiles is more than happy to take on new clients, or address any concerns you may have. Simple give us a call at 587-353-5060 and we’ll take care of the rest!
