We checked the Internet and as far as we have found, no child was ever born with perfect hygiene habits. Bringing your child to the dentist not only helps protect them from cavities and unnecessary illnesses, it also instills in them an understanding of the importance of regular dental care. Dr. Vermet and his dental care team know that reinforcing these habits is a big part of our role in setting your child up for a lifetime of healthy choices.
Did you know that improper dental care can be the cause of not just tooth decay (cavities! ouch!), but also bad breath, gum disease, dietary issues and more. Poor dental hygiene has been linked to heart attacks, strokes, and cancer, too. This is part of the reason why it is so important to teach your child about proper dental care, creating healthy dental hygiene habits so we can can improve the odds in their favor!
We all know people with a particular fear of the dentist, known as dentophobia. Dentophobia can be caused by a number of factors, including childhood trauma. We treat our youngest patients with the utmost care in order to protect them from a painful experience that may make them avoid proper dental care in the future. Creating a long track record of positive dental care experiences is part of our responsibility as dental care providers so your child can feel safe and comfortable returning to the dentist each and every visit, each and every year.
