Dr. Desbordes is a family dentist dedicated to providing comprehensive dental care for patients of all ages. For a lifetime of healthy smiles, early life dental care is essential. Pediatric dentistry focuses on the unique dental concerns of children as their teeth develop. Visiting the dentist from an early age can allow for conservative treatment for developmental concerns. Our Woodlawn, MD dentist office offers dental care for all stages of oral development that focuses on healthy and positive dentist-patient relationships.
When Should I Take My Child to the Dentist?
Your child should have its first scheduled dentist visit as their first tooth begins to show. As your child grows and their teeth continue to develop they should visit the dentist at least twice a year. Routine dental check ups will help protect your child’s teeth and gums from advanced oral health concerns.
Early Dental Development & Tooth Decay
More than 50% of first graders and nearly 80% of high schoolers have at least one cavity. Professional dental cleanings and routine check-ups can help deter advanced dental concerns and the development of childhood cavities. Regular visits to the dentist as your children’s teeth develop will help our dental care team track their oral health. Understanding the development of their teeth will allow for earlier and potentially more effective dental treatments.
As part of our comprehensive family dentistry, we offer children education on proper oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing techniques. Early visits to the dentist also help your child develop a trusting patient-doctor relationship so that they feel secure and safe when visiting the dentist.
