Dublin area dentist describes the best dental care solutions for children
Parents with children in and around the Dublin area often worry about who to take their children to for dental care. Instead of dealing with a separate pediatric dental practice, many prefer to have their children seen at a family-friendly practice that can schedule back-to-back dental appointments for everyone in the household. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala at StarBrite Dental is proud to offer family dentistry, offering dental care for children and adults in the Dublin area.
Dental care for children is similar to that for adults. It is important that children understand why it is essential that they take good care of their smile. Oral health is important to help reduce the development of problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. These conditions can have permanent, negative consequences to the health and appearance of the smile. By taking good care of the teeth and gums, patients can reduce the risk of developing these issues and maintain a healthy, attractive smile for life!
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team of StarBrite Dental also provide sealants and fluoride treatments for children to help strengthen their teeth and reduce their risk of decay. During these dental appointments, parents can ask questions and learn more about how they can encourage their children to take better care of their smile. We encourage children to visit regularly with their parents, typically at least twice a year for professional cleanings. This can reduce the risk of disease and decay. This allows Dr. Munira Lokhandwala to detect problems early enough for conservative and effective treatment. Children and adults who do not visit their dentist regularly may be allowing problems to develop and progress to the point where they are more difficult to control and treat, resulting in more time and cost to repair.
If you are a parent who wants their child to visit a dentist who can provide age-appropriate care for children, contact Dr. Munira Lokhandwala today. We encourage parents to consult a dentist who provides family-friendly care for patients of all ages and can educate them on the advantages of better oral health and wellness.
