A dental home offers more than general dentistry for kids in Redlands

In today's tough economic times, many parents attempt to save money by avoiding taking their children (or themselves) in for regular dental visits. However, statistics indicate that children who visit a dentist when the first tooth erupts have 40% less in dental costs by the age of five, compared to children who did not visit a dentist before their first birthday. Early dental care is a wise investment in your child's health as well as economically.

We all want the very best for our children, and an effective way to ensure lifelong optimal oral health is to establish a dental home for our children when their first tooth erupts, which is usually about six months old. As soon as the first tooth erupts, it is vulnerable to decay. Even in the early stages of life, tooth decay can seriously impact your child's health and wellbeing.

Many studies have discovered a possible association between childhood cavities and low body weight. Moreover, evidence suggests that compromised dental health can result in effects that can last a lifetime. Poor oral hygiene in childhood may be linked to an increased risk of a child eventually having low birth weight babies, suffering a stroke, or developing heart disease.

By establishing a dental home for your child with a trusted dental practice, you will ensure that your child receives family centered, coordinated, comprehensive dental care. When preventive care is initiated during infancy, it can establish a foundation for lifelong excellent dental care and optimum oral health. A dental home will provide your child with many benefits:

  • Comprehensive dental care, with an emphasis on prevention
  • A thorough assessment of the risk for decay and periodontal disease, as well as other oral conditions
  • A personalized dental care program
  • Guidance about, and monitoring of development issues
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Education for parents and children in proper oral hygiene and dental care practices

To establish your family with a trusted dental home, schedule a consultation with the dental team at Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry. They are a great team of experts that will provide expert, compassionate, and gentle care in a child friendly atmosphere.
