To prepare for your upcoming appointment for your young child, please deliberate on the following before your visit.

During your child’s appointment, Dr. Andrea Miller and the team at Children's Dental Specialists of Lake County will inspect your child’s mouth for signs of baby bottle tooth decay, such as spotting on the pearly whites and red, swollen gums. If there are signs of tooth decay, Dr. Andrea Miller will talk with you about choices for processing, and treatment will be performed then or scheduled for a future appointment. As the doctor finishes up, they will teach your child about good dental hygiene and encourage the practice of healthy oral behaviors.

Preventing and treating are vital for the health of children during adolescence and adulthood. Although lots of people mistakenly believe that the welfare of a child’s pearly whites doesn’t matter since baby pearly whites are impermanent, a child’s dental health condition will greatly affect their oral health as an adult. Prematurely lost baby chompers will cause crowding and can cause speech problems, chomping difficulties and low dental quality of life.

The team at Children's Dental Specialists of Lake County in Mentor, Ohio, is filled with compassionate professionals trained on baby bottle tooth decay. Why wait a second more?
