Has Your Toddler Had A Dental Exam?

Categories: Family Dentistry

If you have a toddler who has not been to a dentist, we urge you to consider making an appointment today by calling Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry at 616-827-7019.

The best time to start dental checkups for young children is near their third birthday.  This may seem a bit early; however, it’s a great time to become acquainted with preventative dentistry options such as sealants and fluoride supplements. Your dentist can assess the health of your child’s teeth before problems begin, and it’s also helpful for parents to get a refresher course on proper oral hygiene for young children. If you have questions about pediatric dentistry, please call our office at Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry.

Children with an increased risk of dental problems should receive a dental examination as early as possible. Here are some of the risk factors:

  • Sleeping with a bottle
  • Drinking juice continually during the day
  • Abnormal tooth development
  • Thumb sucking
  • Tooth grinding
  • A mother with significant tooth decay
  • Other health problems

Bring your questions to our friendly and thorough staff at Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry. We are located at 769 York Creek Dr NW in Comstock Park, Michigan. You can reach us at 616-827-7019. We want your child to have a healthy smile right from the start and enjoy a lifetime of oral health.

We can whiten, brighten, and straighten your smile!
