Pediatric Dentistry At The Warren Smile Center in New Jersey
Oral health affects the appearance and general health of children for their entire lives, so fostering excellent dental care from a young age is extremely important. Developing brushing techniques and flossing habits will determine the success or struggle children experience with cavities, periodontal disease, and avoiding these conditions as they grow to care for their own teeth. At the Warren Smile Center, Dr. Susanna Kayserman focuses on both the health and appearance of children’s teeth while also educating them on the importance of maintaining healthy tooth habits their entire lives.
Why is pediatric dentistry important?
Enriching children with dental habits and knowledge about oral health directs them on a path for dental success. Like everything that children learn, the earlier they absorb the information, the more likely they are to master it and remember it for a lifetime, such as language and walking. Healthy dental habits are no exception. At the Warren Smile Center, Dr. Kayserman offers biannual appointments for children to ensure that they learn the fundamentals of how and why to keep their teeth, gums, and tongue healthy and clean. Dr. Kayserman will also provide a thorough cleaning and examination of the progress of your child’s dental and oral development. Some aspects of this evaluation include the number of teeth your child has compared the average number of teeth children have in their age group, the progression of loose teeth, and speech development. Below is a chart which further highlights the aspects of your child’s dental examination.
