Work With Your Pediatric Dentist To Monitor Wisdom Teeth

wisdom teeth removal Fayetteville

Even if your youngster practices proper oral hygiene and has no known problems, it’s important to schedule twice-yearly exams with The Fayetteville Dentist. One reason for this is to monitor wisdom teeth.

If your child’s wisdom teeth emerge during adolescence, it’s critical to work with us on a course of action. When a wisdom tooth tries to erupt but is obstructed by an adjacent tooth, it becomes impacted.

This can cause a variety of issues:

  • It may become inflamed
  • It may become painful
  • It may trap particles of food that lead to tooth decay or gum disease

It’s hard for people of any age to clean partially-erupted wisdom teeth. Since they have a high risk of cavities, we pay special attention to them.

If your youngster has braces, or you are planning for orthodontia in the future, you’ll need to involve your orthodontist in decisions about wisdom teeth.

Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed—but all of them need to be monitored.

At The Fayetteville Dentist, wisdom teeth are among our specialties. If your child hasn’t had a cleaning or exam in the past year, please call our office to schedule an appointment.

4 Reasons To Make Sure Your Child Sees A Dentist

Fayetteville family dentistDid you know that The American Dental Association recommends that a child’s first visit to a dentist should occur around twelve months of age? It’s true! The Fayetteville Dentist offers pediatric dentistry.

For many parents, it’s surprising to find that kids should visit the dentist at such an early age. In this post, we are going to review four reasons why your toddler’s teeth are worth a dental visit.

  1. Twelve months of age is about the time when a little one’s first teeth erupt. Once those teeth come in, it’s time to get them looked at by a professional.
  2. One of the things we’ll do at this first visit is clean those young teeth and apply fluoride.
  3. Visiting the dentist at an early age is a great way to help your child get used to our office. This will help them to be more comfortable with the dentist as they grow older.
  4. Visiting the dentist also helps parents enlist the help of other adults in establishing good dental habits in their children.

If your child is apprehensive about visiting the dentist, you might want to bring them for a short tour of our office beforehand. They can meet our friendly staff and learn what to expect when they come in for their exam.

At The Fayetteville Dentist in Fayetteville NC, we believe in the importance of pediatric dentistry and are in line with the ADA. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.
