The Importance of Dental Visits for Your Children

If you have young children, it is crucial that they visit the dentist regularly as soon as their first tooth erupts. Children usually begin developing their teeth before their first birthday, and they can pick up on good dental habits even at this young age! 

Family Dentistry in West Greeley, CO

At Norco Family Dental, we encourage parents to bring their children with them whenever they have dental appointments with us. We offer comprehensive children’s dentistry services in Greeley, and we would love to treat the youngest members of your family. 

Children learn by observing, and one of the best ways for them to develop strong oral hygiene habits is for them to watch and mimic good dental behaviors. When you bring your children to the dentist, they get a chance to see firsthand how to brush, floss, and care for their teeth. Dr. BJ Stewart is great with our pediatric dental patients, and our whole team uses tooth models and demonstrations to teach your children about taking care of their smiles. 

Reducing Dental Anxiety in Kids

We have also found that children who visit our Greeley dental office regularly are less likely to be afraid of the dentist. When children have the chance to frequently sit in the dental chair, they become familiar with what happens at the dentist and are less anxious about their routine dental appointments. 

Preparing for Permanent Teeth

Even though baby teeth will soon fall out on their own, it is important for kids to learn good dental habits from a young age. Your child may experience problems with their bite and their permanent teeth if a baby tooth is lost too soon due to cavities or decay. Baby teeth play a crucial role in your child's dental development and need to be properly cared for until their mouth is fully prepared to lose them.
