Oral Health In Childhood Has A Lifelong Impact

kids dentist White Plains

Keeping teeth healthy is important at every age, and it begins during childhood. Parents should brush their children’s teeth when they’re still little, and bring them in for regular checkups at The Dental Design Center in White Plains NY.

The sooner children start having regular checkups, the healthier their teeth and gums will be as they grow up. Tooth decay and gum disease can restrict speech development. It can make it more difficult for the child to eat. Unhealthy teeth lower a child’s self-confidence.

Children should see the dentist as sooner as their teeth begin coming in, or by their first birthday – whichever comes first. In addition to an exam, we can use that first visit to give parents any tips that will help them care for their baby’s teeth. We know this can be a daunting responsibility, especially if it’s your first child.

Tooth decay is widespread; it’s the most common chronic disease in the United States. With proper care, it doesn’t have to be that way. At The Dental Design Center in White Plains NY we specialize in general and restorative dentistry. Patients from Scarsdale, Westchester County, and New Castle also come to us for dental implants.
