Preventive Pediatric Dentistry
Maintaining good oral health is important for both children and adults. For strong and healthy teeth, children should learn oral health habits early to prevent gum disease, tooth decay (cavities), and other preventative dental concerns. As a parent or guardian, preventive pediatric dental care can be practiced at home and with the help of a professional pediatric dentist at Honey Bee Pediatric Dental Co located in Lawrence and Lenexa, Kansas.
What is Preventive Pediatric Dentistry?
To protect your children’s teeth and prevent tooth decay from an early age, children should visit the dentist every six months. Teaching them healthy habits like brushing their teeth twice a day and flossing once daily are healthy habits to practice. You also need to schedule regular dental checkups with a professional pediatric dentist to check on the condition of your child’s teeth and their general oral health.
