Children's Dentistry for Blaine Youth
Did you know that baby teeth are the placeholders for adult teeth? Your children’s deciduous teeth play many important developmental roles, which means they need routine dental care to remain healthy and strong.
The Kids are Alright?
Dental caries are the most common childhood disease in America. Plaque and bacteria begin attacking your child’s teeth and gums as soon as they begin consuming food and drinks. Preventive children’s dental care should begin between the ages of two and three for most kids, though if you notice problems before that time, such as late eruption, discolorations, or broken teeth, we encourage you to make an appointment whenever concerns arise. Damaged baby teeth can lead to problems when the permanent teeth start to develop, so it's best to address any issues as soon as possible.
Children’s Dentistry Makes a Difference
We love to see the littlest members of your family and commonly treat the dental needs of children. During your child’s office visit, we’ll make them feel welcome, comfortable, and appreciated as we show them the sights and sounds of our Blaine, MN office. Dentistry can be fun and fulfilling as your child gains confidence in their ability to learn proper brushing and flossing techniques. We also provide preventive therapies, such as dental sealants, to keep teeth strong and healthy.
Of course, your kiddos will still need your guidance to take care of their teeth for several more years. Kids usually gain the independence and skill to take care of their own teeth by the age of eight. Together, through comprehensive children's dentistry, we can create healthy smiles that last a lifetime.
