Starting Oral Care at an Early Age
Getting started at an early age encourages the development of healthy oral habits, but your dentist can also identify various irregularities and alignment issues early on, which means that you would be able to get started correcting these issues as early as possible.
This includes crooked and unevenly spaced baby teeth that may develop into a problem later. By correcting the alignment and spacing of the first set of teeth, you can encourage the proper growth of the incoming adult teeth and possibly prevent your child from needing corrective care down the road.
Dentists also perform gentle cleanings for sensitive and underdeveloped teeth and your child can begin to understand the importance of oral care at a young age and carry those habits into adulthood.
