Kyrenia Dental Clinic offers pediatric dentistry — treatment and prevention of dental disease, as well as the overall oral health of children.
Are you a parent of a young brusher or flosser? Knowing how to teach your child about dental hygiene or discovering when to bring your child in to the dentist can make a big difference in their dental health later in life.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children should visit their family dentist before their first birthday, or as soon as their first baby tooth erupts. This is a pivotal time in your children’s dental health and positively impacts the future of their oral health and comfort at the dentist.
A trip to the dentist allows your dental team to provide a number of valuable resources:
- Teach and develop good oral hygiene habits
- Fix small dental issues like cavities while they’re small
- Predict and plan for changes in dental health
- Develop a foundation of trust and support early-on
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults, but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education.
