Dr. Kathleen Monn of Anderson Pediatric Dentistry in Anderson, South Carolina, has 10 years of experience keeping young teeth healthy. Dr. Monn and the other professionals at her practice are specially trained in treating the unique dental issues encountered by infants, children, teens and children with special needs. A large part of Dr. Monn's practice is focused on developing healthy habits, and by following a few simple steps, parents can ensure their children's oral health for years to come.
Anderson Pediatric Dentistry's philosophy is to star t dental care for children early. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry advises parents to begin regular dentist visits by one year of age, and these early visits can be crucial in catching certain problems early on. Infants are at risk for baby bottle tooth decay, and by detecting these issues quickly they can be remedied before any real damage is done.
In general, Anderson Pediatric Dentistry advises parents to limit their child's consumption of sugar, a practice that is wise for all ages but especially important for younger patients. Diet is important to dental health, and by replacing sugary or starchy snacks with fruit or other healthy alternatives; the risk of tooth decay is lowered. Parents should also ensure that their child is receiving an adequate amount of fluoride, either through fluoridated tap water or treated bottled water, since fluoride can strengthen tooth enamel and promote healthy teeth.
Anderson Pediatric Dentistry strives to educate young patients about the importance of good oral hygiene from an early age. Brushing at least twice a day prevents harmful cavities, which can lead to chronic health issues if left untreated. Dr. Monn also recommends beginning good flossing habits as soon as a child's teeth touch one another.
