What do you know about pediatric dentistry? If you are like many new parents, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and have a lot of questions about your child’s oral health care. That is why our team here at Sukyoung Ahn DDS in Chico, California, is happy to tell you about pediatric dentistry, and why it’s important for your child’s health.

Planning for your child’s oral health is important because it sets up the health of your child’s smile for years to come. That is why it’s best to bring your child into our office to see Dr. Sukyoung Ahn once they either turn a year old or six months after their first tooth appears. These appointments are essential for many purposes, including having their pediatric dentist correct any dental problems that may arise and to help your child become comfortable with them in the hopes of avoiding dental anxiety as they grow older.

Another important factor to remember is to avoid too much sugar intake for your children. Sugar, as many people know, can cause cavities and even gum disease. Having sugary drinks placed in your child’s bottle can also be putting your child’s oral health at risk as well as their overall health, making it important to avoid.

If you want to keep your child’s smile healthy, please call us today at 530-342-0104 to set up an appointment. Our dedicated team is happy to address any questions or concerns you may have pertaining to your child’s care. So call us today and let us help keep your child’s smile in beautiful shape.
