Why Is Pediatric Dentistry Important?

Despite the notion that the health of baby teeth aren’t important because your child will eventually lose them, it’s still extremely important to care for them. The truth of the matter is, dental decay can negatively impact your child’s health and lead to future dental concerns. At Anthem Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we help keep kids healthy and happy by focusing on unparalleled pediatric dental services centered around each individual child and their needs. Bigger, brighter smiles begin with Anthem!

Healthy Teeth = Healthy Child

When your child has healthy teeth, we know their overall health is also better. Dental decay is the most common childhood disease, which is why it’s so important to encourage healthy dental habits early in life, including seeing a pediatric dentist twice per year.

Early dental checkups prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to mouth pain and other behavioral issues. Kids with poor dental health miss more school and have trouble concentrating, whereas kids with healthy teeth learn to chew and speak properly and with greater ease.

Creating Healthy Dental Habits In Kids

Preventative care combined with a healthy dental routine at home is the perfect way to support your child in teaching good dental habits. With the help of parents and caregivers and the guidance of dentists, they’ll begin to adopt a daily routine of good oral hygiene practices.

What can parents and caregivers do?

  • Monitor when and how kids are brushing their teeth – Brushing twice per day for two minutes is recommended. Ensure that your child cleans each tooth (front and back) whether that’s in an up or down or in a circular motion.
  • Teaching kids how to floss – Flossing can be tough, ask our pediatric dentist for tips or try the individual flossers.
  • Embrace a healthy diet – Where you can, limit their sugar intake and incorporate healthy snacks that include a rainbow of fruits and veggies.
  • Schedule regular dental cleanings with our pediatric dentist.

Why is Anthem different from any other Children’s Dental Company?

We understand children and how to help them feel comfortable, which is why we treat each child as we would our own. All children, especially those with anxiety and fears surrounding the dentist, deserve to be treated with patience and kindness.

What makes a Pediatric Dentist different from any other Dentist?

A pediatric dentist has two to three years of specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only.

Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.

Since every child is different, pediatric dentists have a wide range of approaches to help a child complete needed dental treatment. A pediatric dentist makes a recommendation of behavior guidance methods for the child based upon health history, special health care needs, dental needs, type of treatment required, the consequences of no treatment, emotional and intellectual development, and parental preferences.

Board-certified pediatric dentist: Drs. Cox and Ellsworth are both board-certified pediatric dentists.

A Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry is a pediatric dentist whose credentials have been verified, who has successfully completed voluntary examinations, and who demonstrates specialized knowledge and skill. A Diplomate is dedicated to providing exceptional patient care through a voluntary commitment to lifelong learning.
