Regular dental checkups are essential to maintaining proper oral health. Dental visits are not to be used solely to fix pain and problems, but rather to be proactive with oral hygiene.
During the visit, the dentist and dental hygienist will inspect your child’s teeth and gums for any problems or changes and answer any questions you may have.
Help your child develop a healthy relationship with the dentist by regularly visiting the dentist yourself. Children model the patterns of their parents, so if they see that you are apprehensive, there is a good chance that your child will develop similar attitudes towards the dentist. Don’t express fear of the dentist and perhaps even suggest a fun activity afterwards to get your child looking forward to their dental appointment!
At Children’s Campus of Greenville, we understand the importance of forming healthy dental habits at a young age. The foundation for healthy teeth and gums starts in the first two years of your child life, and we do what we can to help educate your child on forming healthy habits.
