Do you have questions about your child’s dental needs? If so, you are not alone. Many parents have questions about their children’s health, which is why our team here at Central Washington Pediatric Dentistry in Yakima, Washington, is happy to give you answers to some basic pediatric dentistry questions.

The health of your child’s smile is important because it sets up their oral health for years to come. That is why it’s extremely important to bring your child into our office to see Dr. Neal Smith once they either turn a year old or six months after their first tooth appears. These appointments are necessary. They are for their pediatric dentist to correct any dental issues that may arise and to help your child become comfortable with them in the hopes of avoiding dental anxiety as they grow.

It is also important to remember to avoid giving your child too much sugar. Sugar in your child’s diet can cause cavities and even gum disease. Having sugary drinks placed in your child’s bottle can also be putting your child’s oral health through baby bottle tooth decay as well as their overall health.

Do you feel it’s time for your child to visit our friendly pediatric dentist? If so, please call us today at 509-248-2973 to set up an appointment. Our pediatric team is happy to address any questions or concerns you may have pertaining to your child’s care. So, call us today, so we can keep your child’s smile healthy for years to come.
