Why Preventive Dentistry Is Important for Children

There is nothing more precious than your son or daughter's smile! As a parent, you would do anything to protect that smile and give them the best dental care available.

Early dental visits for children are important, not only because they help your little one feel comfortable visiting the dentist, but also because they protect your child's baby teeth. Believe it or not, baby teeth are responsible for guiding adult teeth into place and helping your son or daughter learn to eat solid foods and say their first words.

These little teeth are essential to building your child's dental health. We partner with parents to help them with home care, tips on nutrition, and additional service to protect your son or daughter's teeth as they grow like fluoride treatments and dental sealants.

At NE Dental Associates, building early relationships with our littlest patients is important to us, and we do everything we can to help your child feel at ease in the dental chair. We always make sure that your child is comfortable and ready to move forward before we complete any procedures.

Gaps in the smile due to tooth loss can make eating and speaking correctly a challenge, not to mention the social implications of missing teeth.
