Pediatric Oral Health


Infants face numerous unique oral health needs across their growth and development.  Oral health care is crucial for the pediatric population, beginning with the first tooth through adolescence.

Recent studies say that children should be assessed for dental problems as early as six months old. Make sure that your child see's a dentist after their first primary teeth appear. After your initial visit make sure that you schedule additional visit every six months.

It is very important to maintain the health of the primary teeth. Neglected cavities can and frequently do lead to problems which affect developing permanent teeth. Primary teeth, or baby-teeth are important for proper chewing and eating, providing space for the permanent teeth and guiding them into the correct position, and permitting normal development of the jaw bones and muscles.


  • Early childhood cavities are the number one chronic disease affecting young children.
  • Early childhood cavities are five times more common than asthma and seven times more common than hay fever.
  • Tooth pain keeps many children home from school and distracted from learning.
  • Children are recommended to have their first dental visit as early as six months in age.

Oral health care in America is an important issue for children and their families.  The maintenance of good oral health in childhood can have a lasting positive impact on children's oral and overall health.

The most important factor in maintaining good oral health is seeing the dentist regularly and people who see the dentist regularly usually have a good dental insurance plan.
