Children Need to Visit Their NJ Pediatric Dentist for Routine Dental Exams
How often does your child visit a pediatric dentist for a routine dental check-up?
Dr. Diane Baldwin, a NJ Pediatric Dentist, expresses the importance of routine dental exams for children.
It is recommended that children receive a routine dental exam every six months. With an exam, Dr. Baldwin can inspect the children’s teeth for cavities, provide a cleaning and fluoride treatment, and most importantly diagnose problems early on.
Without a check-up, cavities can go undetected resulting in pain and possible loss of the tooth. Easy ways to recognize dental issues can be pain/discomfort, bleeding gums, and bad breath. Dental problems can also be a symptom of another ailment. Instead of waiting for dental complications to arise, children can see NJ Pediatric Dentist Dr. Baldwin to receive a thorough assessment.
Dr. Baldwin believes routine exams will help develop good oral health habits in children. In addition to routine exams, Dr. Baldwin offers pulpotomy (baby root canal), stainless steel crowns, fillings and restorations, extractions, cleanings, fluoride treatments, X-rays, consultations and second opinions.
