Pediatric Dentistry Services in Hemet

 Parents seeking Dental care for their children in Hemet:

It may sound strange, but there are some people who think, “Why care for baby teeth, they are just going to fall out?”

There are lots of great reasons to take care of our first teeth. For one, baby teeth act as guides that help direct our permanent teeth into place; the permanent tooth just follows the baby tooth into the right spot.  When baby teeth are lost prematurely, the adult teeth drift or get crowded out.

Secondly, the way we are taught to brush and care for our baby teeth train us for a lifetime of good hygiene for our permanent teeth.   One of the major causes of decay is poor hygiene. Dentists are an important part of training young people to take care of themselves.

Cavities are becoming more prevalent, not less.  It is always easier, cheaper and healthier to catch cavities when they are small. Another good reason to bring kids in for regular check ups is to find hereditary or developmental issues that may exist.  For example, missing teeth due to genetics or jaws that are not growing adequately. Some of these things need early intervention and timing can determine success or failure.

Frequently asked questions about Pediatric Dentistry in Hemet

Why is general dental health so important in my child's early years?

Yes! General dentistry is essential for everyone, no matter their age or current dental health. In fact, the American Dental Association recommends visiting your Hemet general dentist at least once every six months for a dental cleaning and consultation. Depending on your oral health, more frequent visits may be recommended. Regularly seeing a general dentist helps to preserve your natural teeth for many years to come. How long has it been since your last visit to the dentist? If it has been longer than six months, schedule a consultation for your child at the Hemet dental office of Dr. Formica.

Being aware of what’s going on in your child’s mouth can help make informed decisions about orthodontics, overall dental health, and catch potential problems early on, to mitigate future concerns. An experienced Dentist like Dr. Formica can help you understand how to treat problems before they become more difficult to correct. Ideally, your children should see a dentist early in their lifetime, to see how teeth are coming in, and changes in alignment, growth and

What should I expect after my child sees Dr. Formica in the Hemet dental practice?

Routine dental check-ups and hygiene appointments are important. This is especially true with younger patients that are losing teeth, and seeing new teeth come in. Having a dentist check on tooth alignment and growth can help mitigate potential concerns with jaw positioning, cavities, and breathing amoung other things. 

Being ahead of the curve by having regular visits with a dentist in your children’s early years makes it easy to address potential problems early, and establish healthy dental habits. 

You can also expect to learn about technology improvements and procedure changes with general and specialty dental practices. 

We’re looking forward to helping establish healthy mouths and best practices to maintain great dental helth with you and your child.
