As the dentist in Orange County agrees, many parents do not know how important their child's primary teeth are. And hence, they think it doesn't matter if the kids develop cavities in their teeth. However, in reality, studies say that approximately 23% of children between the ages of 2 and 11 with untreated tooth decay are at an increased risk of having problems with their adult teeth.
Pediatric oral care includes two components - preventative care at the pediatric dentist's office and at home. The primary goal of preventative oral care is to prevent the onset of any dental issues and thus preserve the health of the child's teeth.
As per the ADA, it is important to take your child to a pediatric dentist when their first tooth erupts or when they turn one year old. During the regular checkups at the dentist in Orange County, we will examine the baby's teeth for early signs of tooth decay, clean the teeth, address dental concerns, if any, track jaw and teeth development, monitor orthodontic issues, and help parents with recommendations on taking care of their child's teeth. Besides, the dentist will also suggest the application of topical fluoride and dental sealants to strengthen the teeth and reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Create a good oral care routine for your child and help them stick to it. Lead them by example.
