First Pediatric Dentist Visit

At Beyer Dental, we believe that it is never too early to teach your child about proper dental care. As soon as your baby’s teeth start popping through the gums, it is important to maintain regular dental exams to monitor your child’s ongoing dental health with a pediatric dentist. We partner with families to create a long-term dental care plan that starts with the first dental visit, which should be scheduled within six months of the emergence of your baby’s first tooth.

Our caring staff is skilled in pediatric dentistry and can provide tips to ensure a positive experience for all. Children tend to do better when they are fresh and alert, so it’s best to schedule their appointments earlier in the day. Sharing positive, encouraging feelings and conversation about their upcoming dental visit helps your child to feel comfortable and compliant in the dental chair.

My Child Grinds Their Teeth

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is quite common in childhood. Luckily most children outgrow it as they get older.

Bruxism is often caused by stress, anxiety, or dental misalignment. For example, a child might grind their teeth while teething or experiencing an earache. Tooth grinding can chip the teeth or wear down the enamel, so it is important to talk to our team at Beyer Dental if your child grinds their teeth at night.

We can identify the underlying issue, and help you to find the right treatment to protect your child’s teeth.

Baby Teeth Caries

At Beyer Dental, we provide a customized treatment plan to protect both baby teeth and permanent teeth. Tooth decay, often known as cavities or caries, happens when bacteria in the mouth causes the formation of plaque. The acidic nature of this bacteria and plaque can eat away at tooth enamel, resulting in decay.

Even if your child doesn’t have their permanent teeth yet, it is important to protect the baby teeth from cavities. Minimizing the risk of tooth decay is essential to promote the healthy growth of permanent teeth. Our experienced dental team can provide recommendations about dietary changes and oral hygiene habits that help to prevent tooth decay. We also offer treatment solutions to stop the progression of tooth decay, helping your child to maintain healthy teeth for life.

Brushing & Flossing

When a child develops good dental hygiene habits early in life, such as brushing and flossing, these habits can support the long-term health of their teeth and gums.

We partner with parents to ensure an optimal pediatric treatment plan for each child. Toddlers need help with brushing to ensure that all surfaces of the teeth are reached. As the child grows and develops the right brushing techniques, it is important that these skills are practiced under supervision. Eventually, children will be able to maintain self-sufficiency with regular brushing and flossing.
