Dental Success For Your Whole Family

Family Vista CAAs a parent, it is important to care for the needs of every member of your family. Dental habits start at an early age, so one of these vital steps is setting a strict schedule of appointments with your oral health provider. Luckily, both adults and children require semiannual checkups every six months, so you can make your appointments alongside your little ones. Some individuals need special care, so always talk with your dentist about your particular needs. Keeping this schedule can benefit both you and your child!

Here at Melrose Dental Arts in Vista, CA, we are here to help with the oral health needs of every member of your family. From their first visit through to adulthood, give your child the tools they need to be successful with positive dentistry from a trusted provider. We can also assist their development with the use of dental sealants, in order to help them avoid cavities while they are still learning to care for their smile. We look forward to meeting your family!

Help Them To Understand Their Dental Needs

Children do not have the ability to fully understand the effects of their actions. After all, they have not had enough experience to comprehend how their actions can impact their quality of life in the future, so it is up to you to ensure that they are taking care of their smile as they learn. One way that parents keep an emphasis on dental hygiene is with frequent trips to the dentist. Your little one needs to see a provider at least twice each calendar year, and some children need additional visits to ensure that they grow into a healthy mouth. We can also be a trusted outside authority figure, so that they receive the proper education surrounding their oral health.

Be Their Dental Hero With Combined Appointments

If your child has anxiety about seeing the dentist, try setting the tone by placing your appointment on the same day as theirs. With this approach, you can show them that this visit is not something to fear, but is rather a positive step in their growth. You can also use this method to ensure that you stay up to date with your own semiannual checkups.

Another approach that parents find useful is to schedule examinations and cleanings around significant events in their life. By regularly scheduling checkups near the end of a school year, you can use this time to emphasize their growth! While you are here, take the time to discuss all of your options, including the use of dental sealants. These products coat the chewing surface of their molars, limiting the decelopment of cavities.
