Is your child’s growing teeth making them uncomfortable, irritable and disrupting their eating? Well, not all adult teeth come in perfectly straight and aligned, so your child may be experiencing one or several dental issues.
Fortunately, Family Dental Care offers industry-leading dental care for kids that will help your child fill in their teeth comfortably and help prevent dental issues in the future.
We know how challenging it can be to see children struggle with overbites, crossbites, overlapping or crowding, and how these issues can hinder their speech development. So, why not visit us today and give your child a healthy smile?
The Pains of Growing
As parents, we become so proud when our children reach different milestones throughout their lives, and it’s an exciting time watching them progress through all the various stages of growth. From the day they cut their very first tooth to the moment they tucked it under their pillow for the tooth fairy, all the discomfort and pain of growing up became worth it as your little child transformed right before your eyes, soon to become an independent young adult.
However, what you hadn’t anticipated while saving their tiny baby teeth were the issues that were to come, and to be fair, you felt that handling a teething baby was a far easier job!
So, now you have a pre-adolescent with overcrowding teeth that are far too big for their mouth, and every day becomes a struggle. They are uncomfortable both physically and emotionally, and you know that the social pressures at school weigh on them because their smile makes them the perfect target for school ground bullying and ridicule.
What do you do? Is it necessary to visit a dentist? Well, if your child is experiencing pain, swollen or bleeding gums and is having speech difficulty, you should contact your local dentist for an appointment. Your child will be much happier and feel more confident after rectifying their dental issues.
The Six-Month Call to Healthy Teeth
Developing and growing teeth need more than an apple a day. Between your child’s daily oral hygiene routine, you should have them visit their dentist every six months for a check-up and cleaning. Regular visits allow preventative dentistry to be effective, and it will ensure your child’s teeth are strong, healthy and cavity-free.
Children are resilient for the most part, but it is still the parent’s duty to ensure their child’s health is in the best possible condition. So, make sure to visit Family Dental Care for gentle and effective dental care for kids, and contact us to schedule an appointment.
