Hello! This post from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville is for parents. We know that the health and safety of your children is your top priority. That’s why you baby-proof your home, serve healthy foods, and buckle the kids tightly in their car seats. You want to protect them from cavities, too.
Tooth decay is reaching near epidemic proportions in the United States, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Teaching good dental health habits and seeing us twice a year for a cleaning and checkup goes a long way to preventing cavities.
Teeth and gum condition can affect speech development, nutrition, and self-confidence. From birth, there are important things parents can do to promote healthy teeth—even before your son’s or daughter’s first tooth erupts.
At St. Mary’s Dental, we maintain a kid-friendly environment so our youngest patients look forward to dental check-ups and never develop the fear of dentists that was more common in generations past. We love working with you and your child to ensure a healthy smile for life.
