Hello new parents! At Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville we know that keeping babies and toddlers safe and healthy requires constant effort. You secure them snuggly in their car seats, baby-proof your medicine cabinet and guard the stairway with a gate. You take them to your pediatrician for immunizations, check-ups and an occasional prescription for an antibiotic.
Freedom Village Dental wants to remind you about another important component of child wellness: oral health. Sadly, we see too many cases of completely preventable child cavities. You have probably received the following critical advice, but it bears repeating:
- Don’t put babies to bed with a bottle!
- Don’t allow kids to drink juice continually during the day!
- Prevent frequent snacking on sugary foods!
Oral health is intrinsically connected to overall physical health and normal development. If your oral hygiene is not up to par, now is the time to shape up and help your young child develop prime oral health behaviors that will serve them well throughout their life.
Freedom Village Dental recommends beginning twice-yearly dental visits, starting around age one or when the first tooth breaks through. Our friendly staff helps young patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their exams.
We can advise you on thumb sucking, dental sealants, normal child tooth development, braces, athletic tooth protection, fluoride, or any other pediatric dental issue.
In addition to children’s dentistry, Freedom Village Dental offers the full spectrum of dental services such as family dentistry and emergency dentistry
If your toddler has not yet visited the dentist, schedule an appointment ASAP by calling us at 910-716-0101.
