FAQ about children’s dentistry

Why are baby teeth important?

Even though they’re temporary, baby teeth play a crucial role in your child’s oral development. They help children chew properly, assist in speech development, and save space for the permanent teeth that follow. Early loss of baby teeth due to decay or other issues can lead to later crowding problems with permanent teeth.

How can I prevent cavities in my child's teeth?

Proper oral hygiene, a balanced diet, and regular dental check-ups are key to preventing cavities. Brush your child’s teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, and consider preventive treatments such as dental sealants for additional protection.

When should I bring my child for their first dental visit?

The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that a child’s first dental visit should be scheduled shortly after their first tooth appears, but no later than their first birthday. At Excel Dental, we agree with this recommendation. Our ‘Happy Visits’ for infants and toddlers provide an opportunity for our dentists to evaluate your child’s oral health early on, while also giving you guidance on how to establish good oral care habits for your little one right from the start.
