Do you want to keep your child’s smile healthy? If so, you are not alone. It is natural to want to keep your child away from negative things that may damage their health, which is why pediatric dentistry may be needed for your child’s smile. Here at Kids First Pediatric Dentistry in Timonium, Maryland, we take pride on giving your child the best care possible.

Caring for your child’s oral health is important because it sets up the future of the health of your child’s smile for years to come. That is why it’s important to bring your child into our office to see Dr. Austin Bowden when your child turns either a year old or six months after their first tooth appears. These early dental visits have many purposes, including having their pediatric dentist correct any dental health problems that may occur and to help your child become comfortable with them in the hopes of avoiding dental anxiety as they grow older.

Another piece of advice is to remember to avoid too much sugar intake for your family. Sugar can cause cavities and lead to gum disease. Having sugary drinks inside your child’s bottle can also be putting your child’s smile at risk as well as their overall health.

That is why, if you feel it’s time for your child to visit our friendly pediatric dentist, please call us at 410-828-5699 to set up an appointment. Our dental team is thrilled to address any questions or concerns you may have pertaining to your child’s care.
