Taking kids to a dentist can be a problem for many parents (especially if the child has developed a general fear of medical professionals). But it will relieve the tension for both of you if you can find the right dentist to make your child feel as secure as possible. Korte Family Dentistry is intended to treat people of all ages; if you are searching for a dentist, you can bring your whole family to.
Sugary substances allow the bacteria in your child's mouth to produce acid and demineralize the enamel, which leads to tooth decay.
FINDING THE SOLUTION
Many parents believe that it is okay to skip dental visits until later in their child's lives as their baby teeth are going to fall out anyway. For the long-term protection of your child's teeth, this is a risky presumption. For building smart behaviors and keeping teeth safe well into their adulthood, brushing, flossing, and semi-annual check-ups are important.
Fluoride treatment is available for cavity prevention in children up to age 16.
Dr. Korte will make it easier for parents and kids alike to put their wellbeing first. Setting your child up for success, both now and in the future, is our goal. We do everything in our power to ensure that treatment is as painless as possible, so they don't fear the dentist. Long after they turn 18, this trust will help them keep up with preventive visits.
