NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- From a very young age, children are ingrained with the importance of brushing and flossing. One very important component that is often overlooked when teaching children the importance of dental hygiene is regular checkups. North Hollywood dentist, Dr. Afar, has gathered a team of dentists and specialists who now provide preventative dental care for children and teach them good oral hygiene habits from a young age.
Modern dental practices have evolved in recent years, dramatically improving the oral health of children even before their first birthday. Studies have repeatedly shown that good hygiene routines should begin as the child's first tooth erupts. By starting dental visits at NOHO Dental Group at an early age, children develop a trusting relationship with their pediatric dentist in North Hollywood and will have a better experience during their visits. This means that children will encounter less dental problems as they grow up and will have healthier teeth.
Each and every year of a child's life will bring on new challenges when it comes to healthy teeth. By age six, many children will have begun the transition from baby teeth into their permanent teeth, and it is important that these teeth come in properly. Beyond the basics of hygiene and cleaning, the North Hollywood cosmetic dentist working at Dr. Afar's practice will also see to the overall appearance of the children's teeth. Orthodontic treatments such as braces and Invisalign aligners can be used if the teeth are not aligned properly. Preventive dentistry treatments such as dental sealants can also be used to prevent some dental problems in children.
When raising children, the questions are endless over their health and safety. With an experienced family dentist, just a little bit of guesswork can be taken out of the equation for patients. Dr. Afar and his staff of pediatric dentists and cosmetic dentists in North Hollywood can help children and their parents with various dental treatments children need as they grow up.
