Lehi Pediatric Dentistry

Preventing Decay

  • Not letting your baby fall asleep with a bottle of milk or juice, as the sugars can rot the teeth if they’re not brushed before bed.
  • The importance of drinking liquids from a sippy cup instead of a bottle by age one.
  • How to safely and effectively brush your child’s teeth.

Starting Good Oral Habits

Bringing your child to the dentist at a young age can also help them be more comfortable with regular, preventative appointments. There are plenty of stereotypes about children being afraid of the dentist, but that’s usually because they’ve waited too long to go and now it’s an unknown, unfamiliar experience.

Bringing your child for regular appointments early on, even if they are nothing more than “wellness checks” can help your child to stay calm and comfortable at the dentist. They’ll also learn about healthy oral habits and how to take care of their teeth from a young age, which is a great way to help them prevent decay and take proper care of their mouth for the rest of their lives.

At Dry Creek Pediatric Dentistry, our top priority is making sure all of our patients are comfortable and happy throughout any procedure. We serve the Lehi, Utah area with pediatric dental services that focus on care, compassion, and a dedication to oral health for the next generation.

If you’d like to know more about Dry Creek Pediatric Dentistry, or when you should set up an appointment for your child (no matter their age!), feel free to contact us today for more information or to schedule a wellness visit or exam. We pride ourselves on being the best in Lehi pediatric dentistry.
