Pediatric Dental Care in Texas It’s More Important Than Parents Think There are some parents that start brushing their babies gums from the frst day they are born. There are other parents that stll believe that baby teeth do not mater because they all fall out anyway. While it is true that all baby teeth will eventually fall out that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be taken care of. There are quite a few reasons that parents should be going the extra mile to make sure that children in Texas have healthy teeth. Habits are formed when children are young When children are young they form certain habits. Some of these dental habits are good and some of them are bad. How a child learns to take care of their teeth when they are young will follow them for the rest of their life. For example if a parent sings with their child and teaches them to love brushing their teeth the child is more likely to grow up taking beter care of their teeth than a child with a parent that did not brush their teeth at all. Granted parents can turn this around if their child does not grow up with good dental hygiene but it’s a lot easier and is more likely to last a lifetme when children understand how important proper dental care is from the very beginning. Early speech depends on them When Texas children are frst learning to talk they need to be able to place their tongue behind their front teeth in between their teeth and so on to make certain sounds. When children do not have these teeth because they had to be pulled out they are not able to properly make those sounds. This can result in children having to spend tme in speech therapy learning how to pronounce specifc sounds when they are older and their teeth grow back in. Ofen teachers will have to plan their schedule around this which can make learning more difcult. Cavites can cause weak gums When children get cavites at a young age and those teeth have to be pulled it can result in the gums getng weaker. The gums are the same place that the adult teeth will grow from so there needs to be a sturdy foundaton of strong gums so that they can grow in properly. If the gums are weak it

can result in the teeth growing in crooked or they may have a hard tme holding the teeth all together. Instead plan for a healthy smile for the rest of their life by giving them healthy gums from the beginning. Confdence When children sufer from baby botle tooth decay they usually wind up losing most of their front teeth. A three year old will not notce that their smile is diferent from the other kids but once they go to school they more than likely will. This can be devastatng for a child’s confdence resultng in them only smiling with their mouth closed untl their teeth grow back. That is something heartbreaking that no parent in Texas wants for their children. They get used to going to the dentst When children are young they get used to certain things. Just like children will get used to brushing their teeth they will get used to going to the dentst when parents use their Texas dental plan to schedule them a check up. The frst check up can usually be scheduled when a child gets their frst tooth. Some parents may wait untl their child is two or three years old which is fne as long as the child is not having any problems with their teeth. Because this happens so early going to the dentst will be a part of life instead of a scary trip that will make children cry. Texas dental plans help make care afordable for everyone including children of all ages. Because of how afordable Texas dental plans are there’s no reason not to take a child to the dentst to get started on a life plan that includes a healthy smile and good self esteem.
