Every child needs the best possible start in order to enjoy the benefits of strong, healthy teeth. When it’s time to choose your child’s dentist, you can count on the gentle, caring dental team at Lynnwood Kids Dentist. Our dentists treat patients ages 1 through 18-years old.
Dental sealants are thin protective coatings that we use to protect your child’s teeth against decay. We can easily apply them on the chewing surfaces of your child’s teeth in one appointment. With proper care, your child’s sealants can last five to 10 years.
When brushing and flossing our teeth, it is not always easy to get between every nook and cranny. That is why it is important to schedule your biannual dental appointment to ensure that your child’s smile is healthy and free from cavities or tooth decay.
Primary teeth are important for several reasons. Foremost, good teeth allow a child to eat and maintain good nutrition. Healthy teeth allow for clear pronunciation and speech habits. The self-image that healthy teeth give a child is immeasurable. Primary teeth also guide eruption of the permanent teeth. Losing primary teeth early due to cavities can sometimes cause very crowded permanent teeth.
The teeth, bones and soft tissue of the mouth require a healthy, well-balanced diet. A variety of foods from the five food groups help minimize (and avoid) cavities and other dental problems. Most snacks that children eat cause cavities, so try to have more healthy foods like vegetables, low-fat yogurt and cheeses, which promote strong teeth.
Tooth decay in infants can be minimized or totally prevented by not allowing sleeping infants to bottle-feed. Infants that need a bottle to comfortably fall asleep should be given a water-filled bottle or a pacifier.
Children can experience the world of Disney during their next teeth cleaning or dental procedure.
We take pride in creating a welcoming and fun environment for our patients. Relax and play video games while you wait for your next appointment.
