Beginning Dentistry for Children at a Young Age

It is extremely important to start dentistry for children when the first tooth appears.

The primary (baby) teeth begin to erupt at about five to six months of age. By the age of six, they begin to lose their primary teeth. Over the course of several years, their primary teeth are replaced by their permanent teeth.

The earlier children become familiar with going regularly to see the family dentist, they can become acclimated to that environment and will feel more comfortable and will be less apprehensive around the office's friendly staff and dentist.

Without proper dental care, children face possible tooth decay and other diseases that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Good oral home care habits take time for children to master — and the right child dentist will go a long way in helping children and their parents learn proper home care habits.

The Ephrata Dentist Who Understands Personal Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry requires the child dentist to be able to relate to children in a fun and instructive manner. We believe in teaching certain disciplines to a child at a young age such as proper oral health practice. We closely supervise the growth of your child specifically in the mouth and skeleton of their face. And of course, we help maintain their oral health in traditional pediatric dentist fashions including cavity prevention and other customary fields of dentistry that are essential to your child's health and well-being.

These skills are applied to the needs of the children throughout their ever-changing stages of development and to treating conditions and diseases unique to growing individuals.

Starting your children as early as when they begin to erupt teeth will ensure they will become relaxed and comfortable with your family dentist.

It is also important to set a good example for your children, as their parents, by showing them it's important for you to attend the regular family dentist, as well.
