The Importance of Good Oral Care for Kids

Oral health isn’t just about the teeth in your mouth. The health of your mouth can directly impact your overall health, affecting your chances of developing cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or even having a stroke. At Shadow Creek Ranch Dental Specialists, we know that your mouth is a window to your overall health. That is why we emphasize good oral care for kids by offering pediatric dentistry. Start children off with good habits from a young age. Encourage them to maintain great oral hygiene for their entire lifetime. Their overall health benefits and you save money in the long term by avoiding many issues that require expensive treatment.

Helping Parents Help Their Children Have Good Oral Hygiene

Good oral care for kids begins at home. With this in mind, we created a dental timeline for parents to follow.  Follow along a child’s lifelong journey toward good habits and a beautiful, healthy mouth.

About Corbet Ellison

Younger smiles often require special attention, and Dr. Corbet Ellison, our Pediatric Dentist, is ready to address their needs with specialized pediatric care. Unlike a general family dentist, a pediatric dentist has received three years of formal training beyond dental school to address the needs of juvenile patients. The American Dental Association recommends a baby should first be brought to the pediatric dentist when the first primary (or “baby”) tooth appears, or no later than their first birthday. Your child will undergo treatment that incorporates the latest techniques and advances in the field, to ensure the strongest possible care from the earliest age on.
