3 Dental Dangers For Toddlers

Kenwood family dentist

Hello new parents! We know that keeping babies and toddlers safe and healthy requires constant effort. You snap them tightly in their car seats, lock your medicine cabinet and guard the stairway with a gate. You take them to your pediatrician for immunizations, check-ups and an occasional prescription for an antibiotic.

Endres Gateway Dentistry wants to remind you about another important component of child wellness: oral health. Sadly, we see too many cases of completely preventable child cavities. You have probably received the following vital advice, but it bears repeating:

  1. Don’t put babies to bed with a bottle!
  2. Don’t allow children to drink juice continually during the day!
  3. Prevent frequent snacking on sugary foods!

Oral health is intrinsically connected to overall physical health and normal development. If your oral hygiene is not up to par, now is the time to shape up and help your young child develop optimal oral health practices that will serve them well throughout their life.

Endres Gateway Dentistry recommends beginning twice-yearly dental visits around age one or when the first tooth breaks through. Our friendly staff helps young patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their exams.

Dr. Eleanor Endres can advise you on thumb sucking, dental sealants, normal child tooth development, braces, athletic tooth protection, fluoride, or any other pediatric dental issue.

In addition to children’s dentistry, Endres Gateway Dentistry offers the full spectrum of cutting-edge restorative and cosmetic dental services such as: cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, and sedation dentistry
