Preventative pediatric dental care refers to the proactive measures taken to maintain and promote optimal oral health in children. It focuses on preventing dental issues before they arise, rather than solely treating them after they occur. This type of care includes regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and the implementation of proper oral hygiene habits, such as brushing and flossing.

Preventative pediatric dental care is crucial because it helps identify any potential problems at an early stage when they are easier to treat. It aims to prevent common issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and cavities, which can cause pain and discomfort in children. Additionally, this approach educates both children and their parents on the importance of good oral health practices and provides guidance on proper nutrition and diet for healthy teeth and gums.

By instilling good oral hygiene habits and emphasizing preventive care from an early age, pediatric dental care professionals can set the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Regular dental visits and preventive interventions not only promote overall oral health but also contribute to the overall well-being and confidence of children as they grow.

Fluoride is the best preventative dentistry available. The reason it gets a bad rap is because it can be dangerous if you ingest it in large quantities. The fluoride the dentist applies is not systemic (where you swallow it), it is applied topically and quickly hardens. It adheres to your tooth where the fluoride strengthens the tooth enamel and prevents small cavities from getting worse. The fluoride is brushed off after 4-6 hours of it being absorbed into the enamel of the tooth. The ADA and the major health organizations in the world today still say it’s one of the top ways to prevent tooth decay.
