Has Your Toddler Had A Dental Exam?

If you have a toddler who has not been to a dentist, we urge you to consider making an appointment today by calling Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry at 270-228-2257.

The best time to start dental check-ups for young children is when their teeth first appear. This may seem a bit early, however it is a great time to become acquainted with preventative dentistry options such as sealants and fluoride supplements. Your dentist can assess the health of your child’s teeth before problems begin and it’s also helpful for parents to get a refresher course on proper oral hygiene for young children.

My name is David Thompson and Vicki Frey of Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises parents to begin children’s dentist visits before the third birthday. If you have questions about pediatric dentistry, please give us a call at Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry.

Children with an increased risk of dental problems should receive a dental examination as early as possible. Here are some of the risk factors:

  • Sleeping with a bottle
  • Drinking juice continually during the day
  • Abnormal tooth development
  • Thumb sucking
  • Tooth grinding
  • A mother with significant tooth decay
  • Other health problems

Bring your questions to our friendly and helpful staff at Thompson & Frey Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. We are located at 3164 Alvey Park Dr E in Owensboro, Kentucky. You can reach us at 270-228-2257. We want your child to have a healthy smile right from the start and enjoy a lifetime of oral health.
