A lifetime of good dental health begins in childhood. Children should first visit the dentist between the ages of two and three. Although "baby teeth" do fall out, many of them are not lost until after age ten and they are critical to the spacing and function of the adult teeth. An early start with proper dental care can treat developing problems early on or completely prevent them.
Many children learn their best oral hygiene habits from the dental office. At Dr. Marchbanks' office we provide facts and information that is understandable for children in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. We can teach your child about brushing, flossing, how to avoid tooth decay and that they can feel comfortable in a dentist's office.
A positive start when visiting the dentist as a child will ensure they will develop and maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine that will continue into adulthood.
