If your child has had their first baby tooth erupt, or they have reached one year of age, it is time that they came into our dental practice for their first dental exam. Even though baby teeth and not meant to last a child for a lifetime it is important that baby teeth are well taken care of so that they will stay healthy and remain in the child’s mouth for as long as possible. It is also important that your child gets used to coming in and being seen by our dentist so that he or she can begin to develop a great attitude toward dentists and dental care. If you would like to bring your kid to a top-notch kids dental office in Eagle Rock, you can do no better than to come to our pediatric dental care office, Children’s Dental Group.

We are very happy to offer a unique dental experience that your child will thoroughly enjoy. We offer many fun activities for kids including video games, movies, and rides they can play on. Children always have a great time coming to our kids dental office in Eagle Rock and enjoy the time they spend with our pediatric dentist as well.
Much of our dental care focuses on prevention. We want to make sure that your child’s mouth stays healthy and that their baby teeth stay cavity free so that they will be able to fulfill their important functions. Baby teeth are needed by children because they act as placeholders for permanent teeth that will erupt later on in their development. Without the baby teeth acting as placeholders, teeth can erupt in the wrong place or even come in sideways. If this happens, orthodontic care will be needed later on. Baby teeth also help a child learn how to speak clearly. And finally, baby teeth allow a child to chew his or her food thoroughly so that it will be digested properly and the child will benefit from all the nutritional value that it offers. Our dentist will also be able to provide your child with preventative treatments such as fluoride treatments to strengthen tooth enamel and dental sealants to protect molar surfaces from cavities.
