When To Take Your Toddler To The Dentist
It’s never too early to build a healthy relationship with a dentist and starting at an early age means having support for the crucial years when your child’s smile is developing. Not every dentist has the experience or extensive education required to practice pediatric dentistry. Our team are all experts in family dentistry and have years of experience working with children and helping them get a happy, healthy smile!
When your child’s baby teeth start to develop in full force, it’s time to step up the dental care and we’re prepared for the challenge. Sucking fingers and thumbs is a common move for many toddlers, but what parents don’t often know is that this can actually cause damage to the position of the jaw over time. Our Clarksville pediatric dentist is happy to answer any questions you may have about this habit and offer tips for how to motivate your toddler to grow out of it.
Outside of education about non-nutritive habits, our expert dentists will work to strengthen your child’s smile with a routine dental cleaning and exam. Dental cleanings are especially important for growing smiles because they get rid of accumulations of dental plaque, a bacteria-filled substance that can cause cavities. By cleaning it away, we’re able to protect smiles from tooth decay and help your toddler feel refreshed!
