What is pediatric dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is dental care tailored to the specific needs of children. At Dr. Ronald Fuhrmann’s dental office, we are committed to helping your child build a foundation for a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime. We encourage you to bring your child to our office for a routine visit at least once every six months. During these visits, our dentist and team will provide a gentle yet thorough dental exam to make certain that your child’s smile is growing and developing properly. If needed, we will also provide a teeth cleaning, which helps your child’s smile stay in good health. We also provide preventive care treatments like dental sealants and restorative services, such as fillings, as needed.
While your child is young, it is also important that you help him or her establish good oral hygiene habits. These daily habits are essential in maintaining good dental health for life. Be sure to teach your child to brush and floss every day, and help them develop good techniques. You should also help your child eat a healthy, balanced diet with a limited amount of sugary and acidic foods, which can lead to tooth decay. When you visit our office, feel free to ask our friendly team any questions you may have about your child’s dental health and oral hygiene.
