If you are looking for an expert dentist who can provide your child with top-notch kids dental care, then we strongly suggest that you become familiar with our dental practice, Alan S. Kuznick DMD. Our Lake Success pediatric dentist will be able to make sure that your child’s teeth and gums remain healthy and well taken care of.
It is generally recommended that a child comes in to see our Lake Success pediatric dentist for their first dental visit after their first baby tooth has erupted, or when they reach one year of age - whichever occurs first. It is very important that baby teeth are able to stay healthy and intact for as long as they are needed. Baby teeth play three very important roles in your child’s oral development. To begin with, baby teeth contribute to a child’s good speech development. Secondly, baby teeth allow your child to chew his or her food thoroughly so that they will be able to gain optimal nutritional value from the foods that they eat. Finally, baby teeth act as placeholders for permanent teeth. If a baby tooth falls out, the permanent tooth that was depending on it to act as a placeholder may come in in the wrong location, or even end up pushing other teeth out of position. When this occurs, it can cause a serious disruption to your child’s fight and call for the need for orthodontic work later on. For these reasons, it is very important that baby teeth are well taken care of so that they will stay in your child’s mouth for as long as they are needed. Children can receive dental exams and dental cleanings at our practice, all while they are relaxed and having a fun time. We know that the early experiences that your child has at our dentist’s office will pave the way for a lifetime of good dental health.
