HOLISTIC PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY
Natural Dentistry from the Beginning
It is never to early to start living a healthier life. A holistic lifestyle is a conscious choice to make healthier decisions, and we believe your little ones can benefit greatly from holistic pediatric dentistry from the beginning. Dr. Shetty and the child-friendly team at Integrative Dental Solutions can help your children understand the importance of good oral care and maintain healthy, beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime.
To help your little ones feel comfortable with the dental care they receive, we feel it’s vital to connect with the kids. Our staff is kid friendly and many of us are mothers ourselves. We understand that young ones need time and they need to feel safe.
Good oral hygiene does not have to be a traumatic experience for your child. We work hard to carefully provide numbing agents in a gentle manner. We also understand the power of distraction and provide kid friendly entertainment during treatments.
Holistic health practices know no age. As is the case with all of our patients, we make it our goal to use safe, biocompatible products for any restoration work. This added attention to detail helps to promote overall health and wellbeing for your child.
Developing Healthy Habits
We are often asked how soon dental treatment should start. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends beginning oral hygiene and care within six months after the first tooth erupts. While an exact age may vary, it’s never too early to introduce your young one to healthy habits that can support and encourage healthier teeth.
A primary factor in helping your little one develop good oral health is snacks. Frequent snacking fuels little ones throughout the day, but snacks full of carbs and sugar can start to build up plaque and attack developing primary or baby teeth. Instead, encourage healthy snacks like fresh fruits and veggies, cheese sticks or nuts. Replacing sugary drinks or fruit juices with water also encourages the development of healthy habits.
