there are three things needed for cavities to form in teeth: bacteria, a food source, and time.
Primary or baby teeth are important for many reasons. They help with chewing, speech, appearance, and save space for the permanent teeth so they can “fit” when they come in. They also help your child build confidence through having a beautiful smile.
first tooth means first appointment
It is important to visit Comfort Dental KIDS after the emergence of the first tooth or by age one to help prevent tooth decay. The earlier the first visit, the more likely your child will have a healthy, cavity-free smile. If cavities are detected, it is much easier to fix them when they are small. Waiting may lead to pain, swelling, infection, and risk your child’s overall health. It is also much more difficult to fix their teeth at this point. Many times, they have to be extracted leading to potential issues such as getting the adult teeth to “fit” in the mouth when they come in.
start early and visit often
Comfort Dental KIDS doesn’t just evaluate your child’s mouth; we look at their head and neck and do a caries risk assessment to determine your child’s risk of cavities. We also establish a nutrition and hygiene plan personalized to your child’s specific mouth and teeth. Remember, once any foods are introduced to your child’s teeth, the risk of cavities increases. We can help with proper use of bottles and sippy cups, and help you avoid finger sucking and pacifier use for too long to help with crooked teeth and bite problems.

building trust and good habits
When treatment is necessary, we make sure your child’s experience is as pleasant as possible, helping them establish trust in the dentist for life. Remember, children are not capable of brushing on their own usually until they are about 8-years old.
