With the latest developments in Dentistry, it is suggested that early infants must also have Dental appointments for risk assessment and its prevention.
The benefits of seeing children at an early age are listed below:
Introduction to Oral Health Care
Early visits to dentists introduce children to Oral health care at a very early age and help them develop good habits for the health of their teeth and gums. This helps them take good care of their teeth through their lives.
Forming a dental-family relation
In case of an emergency, it would be easier to seek help if the relationship with a doctor has already been formed. Otherwise, it would be very difficult to find a dentist in case of any trauma.
Comfort with Dental Appointments
Visiting a dentist from an early age will build a comfort level between the child and the dentist. Children would be more comfortable with the dentist if it’s for prevention instead of treatment.
Forming Good Habits
Discussion of child’s habits like sucking thumb can harm Oral Health. Discussing it with dentists, it can help parents learn how to discourage it and avoid potential threats to their Kid’s oral health.
Prevention of Dental Decay
Ways of spreading the bacteria include sharing of food and utensils. If the rate of bacteria formation is higher in parents, the risk of cavities is higher in the children. If the risk is assessed at the right time, prevention of cavities becomes easier.
Breaking Dental Decay
Intervention at an early age can prevent cavities. The risk of cavities keeps increasing as the kids grow up because of their diet, nature of bacteria presents in their mouth.
Earlier, dentists preferred to have slightly grown-up children because it is relatively easier working with a grown-up child. The hesitation arises in working with younger children from the difficulty n dealing with them and fixing teeth in case of dental activities.
