Has Your Toddler Had A Dental Exam?

Categories: Family Dentistry

If you have a toddler who has not been to a dentist, we urge you to consider making an appointment today by calling Cornwall Dental Arts at 613-932-2058/a>.

The best time to start dental check-ups for young children is when their teeth first appear. This may seem a bit early, however it is a great time to become acquainted with preventative dentistry options such as sealants and fluoride supplements. Your dentist can assess the health of your child’s teeth before problems begin and it’s also helpful for parents to get a refresher course on proper oral hygiene for young children.

My name is Steven Deneka of Cornwall Dental Arts. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises parents to begin children’s dentist visits before the third birthday. If you have questions about pediatric dentistry, please give us a call at Cornwall Dental Arts.

Children with an increased risk of dental problems should receive a dental examination as early as possible. Here are some of the risk factors:

  • Sleeping with a bottle
  • Drinking juice continually during the day
  • Abnormal tooth development
  • Thumb sucking
  • Tooth grinding
  • A mother with significant tooth decay
  • Other health problems

Bring your questions to our family friendly staff at Cornwall Dental Arts. We are located at 806 Pitt Street in Cornwall, Ontario. You can reach us at 613-932-2058/a>. We want your child to have a healthy smile right from the start and enjoy a lifetime of oral health.
