Are you looking for a kids dentist who will be able to provide your child with excellent dental care? If so, you will want to bring your child in to see our dentist at Druger Bundy Dental Associates. Our Lumberton family dentist thoroughly enjoys working with children, and will be able to offer your child dental care while your child remains happy in our stress-free and fun environment.
At our dental practice, our two expert dentists are Dr. Michael Bundy and Dr. Norton Druger. It is generally recommended that kids are first seen by our Lumberton family dentist when their first baby tooth erupts, or when they reach one year of age, whichever happens first. Although baby teeth are not meant to last in your child’s mouth forever, it is important that baby teeth are well taken care of so that they can stay healthy for as long as they are needed. When your child comes into our practice for kids dental care, your child’s teeth will be cleaned, the gums will be assessed to make sure they are healthy, and your child may receive some preventative dental therapies. All of this will be done while your child remains happy in our fun environment.
Children’s baby teeth provide many different functions in the child’s mouth. To begin with, baby teeth act as placeholders for permanent teeth. If they fall out prematurely, your child may need to have a space maintainer in order to make sure that the permanent tooth has a place to erupt. The baby teeth also make sure that your child is able to develop clear speaking habits. And finally, baby teeth allow your child to thoroughly chew his or her food for proper and complete digestion. For all these reasons, it is very important that your child’s baby teeth remain healthy. Children are also able to receive preventive dental treatments at our office including fluoride treatments to help strengthen tooth enamel, and dental sealants to make sure that harmful acids in the mouth do not cause cavities in their teeth.
