Do you know the ins and outs of pediatric dentistry? If not, we have good news for you! Our dental team at Weeder Pediatric Dentistry in La Vista, Nebraska, is here to give you some basic information on pediatric dentistry, and the importance of your child’s oral health as they grow up.

Pediatric dentistry is important because it sets up the health of your child’s smile for years to come. That is why it’s imperative to bring your child into our practice to see Dr. Greg Weeder once they either turn a year old or six months after their first tooth appears. These appointments can help in multiple ways, such as having their pediatric dentist correct any dental issues that may arise and to help your child feel comfortable with them in the hopes of avoiding dental anxiety as they grow older.

Another important thing to remember is to strive in keeping high amounts of sugar intake from your children. Sugary substances can cause cavities and even gum disease. Having sugary drinks in your child’s bottle can also be harming your child’s oral health, as well as their overall health.

If it’s time for your child to visit our pediatric dentist, call us right away at (402) 932.1177 to set up an appointment. Our professional team is capable of addressing any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child’s care. So, call us today and let us keep your child’s oral health in tip-top shape.
