Serving as a compassionate dentist for Savage area residents, Dr. Isaacson is pleased to provide for the all-important dental needs of your children. At Point Family Dentistry & Orthodontics, we realize the necessity of instilling good dental habits in young ones during the formative years. By receiving proper education on why and how teeth should be cared for, youths can take the necessary precautions to help maintain a healthy smile for a lifetime.
Of course, bringing your young one to the dentist may seem daunting or overwhelming to both parent and child alike, but we encourage bringing your child in as soon as their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday — whichever comes first. Introducing these dental visits during these tender years helps in several ways, including:
1. Prevention—At these appointments, Dr. Isaacson can thoroughly check for any oral health issues, including evidence of decay or of baby bottle caries.
2. Education—Children are like sponges and are capable of taking in a great deal of information and instruction, providing the basis for their views on things as they grow older. Dental visits provide kids with the opportunity to see firsthand the role they play in good oral hygiene and the importance of doing so. Parents can also be taught as to how they can protect their children’s teeth.
3. Familiarity—Kids are oftentimes scared of the unknown, like the imaginary monster lurking under the bed. Introducing children to the dentist when they are still young allays those fears, and helps to develop a familiarity and positive association with dental visits that carries over into adulthood.
Show your child that you care for them and their dental health by instructing them on how to practice good oral hygiene and by scheduling regular dental visits with Point Family Dentistry & Orthodontics. As your dentist for Savage area residents, Dr. Isaacson provides the expert dental care and education that will keep both you and your children smiling for a long time.
