BUDA, Texas March 14, 2018
Dr. David McIntyre, of Clear Springs Family Dentistry, is educating families from Buda, TX on the importance of early pediatric dentistry for children. The family dentist believes that proper education will help prevent gingivitis, oral health concerns and cavities in Buda, TX and welcome patients to his Kyle, TX practice for trusted care. Children, even those with their baby teeth, are still susceptible to oral health concerns and should regularly see the dentist for checkups and cleanings.
When oral care is not properly maintained, bacteria can infect the teeth and gums, causing gum disease or cavities. Children frequently develop cavities as parents do not have the proper oral health education to maintain the health of their childâ€™s mouth. Dr. McIntyre offers educational opportunities for those families with children as young as toddler-aged. By establishing a good relationship with the dentist early, children and parents develop improved at-home oral care and are less anxious during dental visits.
Proper pediatric dentistry can help prevent oral problems from developing. When teeth are not cleaned properly, bacteria and tartar can build up and cause gum disease or cavities. Gum disease develops when bacteria infect the soft gum tissue, causing them to become swollen, inflamed, and bleed easily. The first stage of gum disease is called gingivitis, and if caught and treated early enough, can be cured. Cavities are also caused by bacteria and plaque that destroy the surface of a tooth (enamel). This causes tooth pain and sensitivity. If a cavity is not treated, the bacteria can infect the inside of the tooth where the nerve endings are located. Bringing children to a dentist skilled in pediatric dentistry is the best form of preventative care. Dr. McIntyre is able to catch and treat potential problems early, such as:
- Gum disease
- Signs of teeth grinding (bruxism)
- Thumb sucking
- Baby bottle tooth decay
