How Today’s Dental Care Affects Your Child’s Adult Smile!

We’ve talked before about how prevention can help support your child’s future smile. Now, our Dallas, TX team would like to talk a bit more about how specific choices that you’re making (such as placing dental sealants) directly link to the experience your child will have with dental care and oral health once your son or daughter enters adulthood. It may seem quite far off but, of course. However, when you realize just how significant today’s actions can become, it proves to be the truly exceptional incentive that makes you feel much better about the effort you put into your family’s smile care.

Sealants Today, In Adulthood: Healthier Teeth!

You may wonder why you bother with dental sealants. It requires more of your time, your child has to come in for a visit, you need to address scheduling details, and it requires an additional cost. Here’s what we remind you when you start convincing yourself that your child will probably be just fine with brushing and flossing alone: When you provide your child with sealants, you promote an adulthood that likely includes far less decay (if any), so in your son or daughter’s 20s, his or her smile is still in nearly pristine condition. It’s a very nice way to begin adulthood.

Restorative Care In Childhood, In Adulthood: Comfort Accessing Dental Care

You may feel bad when you have to bring your child in for a dental filling or another form of restorative care. You might even want to put it off for a while because life is busy and you figure your child’s smile will be okay. However, when you give yourself a pep talk, you schedule that restoration, and you come on in for care, you’re doing something for your child’s adult smile that’s fantastic! Dental care that rescues teeth immediately right now means your child has most tissue preserved and teeth stay intact. This makes for a very healthy smile that’s ready for a lifetime of use! (Of course, your child will also be much more comfortable accessing this type of dental care when necessary during adult years, so you know you’ve created good feelings about smile repairs when needed).
