Family Dentistry What to Expect
When your family comes to Welinsky Dental Care for your initial visit, Dr. Welinsky will review your dental and medical history, discuss any oral health habits you are concerned about and listen to your goals and expectations for your smile.
The Importance of Baby Teeth
The health and stability of your child’s primary teeth or baby teeth has a direct effect on the long-term health and development of their permanent teeth. The primary teeth also play a role in speech development and your child’s ability to enjoy a normal, varied diet. If there are concerns we seek to address them as early as possible to allow for the most conservative and least invasive treatment.
During your child’s regular visits with us, we will monitor the development of their primary teeth and address any damage or decay to keep them in place until the permanent teeth are ready to erupt.
Dr. Welinsky will also look for any signs of developmental concerns related to the teeth or jaw structure. He may recommend an early orthodontic consult to ensure that your child’s bite will be comfortable and stable as they grow.
