At Durham Dental Group, we are proud of the fact that the majority of our young patients enjoy visiting our office for their checkups, cleanings, and treatments. We believe that establishing a relationship with an experienced children’s dentist is an essential responsibility for parents.
The Oral Health-Physical Health Connection
Good physical health for children is impossible without the oral health component. Though this fact seems obvious, cavities in kids is a national epidemic, but for the most part is preventable. Regular checkups are just as important as well child exams and immunizations.
The health of your child’s teeth and gums affects their speech development, eating habits, academic success, mental health, and social relationships. At Durham Dental Group, we love working with you and your child to establish habits that ensure a healthy smile for life.
The Good News
Today’s children are far less fearful of the dentist than their grandparents’ generation. Part of the reason is that today’s dental tools have come a long way and rarely cause any pain. If you are old enough to remember the whining dental drills of fifty years ago, you probably have a greater appreciation for the technological developments that make dental treatment far more pleasant than in years past.
But advanced tools are not the only reason that our youngest patients look forward to dental visits. At Durham Dental Group, there is a friendly atmosphere that puts patients of all ages at ease. If you are looking for a children’s dentist, please call our office to schedule an appointment. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry. Call today.
