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.

Dental Care for Children

Dr. Welinsky offers children’s dental services to help a growing smile remain healthy and to identify any concerns related to the development of your child’s teeth, gums or jaw structure.

We also offer dental care for the signs of gum disease and teeth grinding in children to support the normal growth of their smile and minimize damage to the teeth and gums. Dr. Welinsky works with local specialists as needed for complex tooth extractions, orthodontic concerns and other dental problems that could impact your child’s dental health.

Family Dentistry FAQs

What's the difference between pediatric and family dentistry?

A pediatric dentist is trained to specifically treat children. However, a family dentist is trained to take care of the dental needs of patients of all ages. They can treat everyone from young children to seniors.

Why is care essential for primary teeth if they're lost?

The primary teeth of children provide the base of their oral health for the rest of their lives. They help children chew and speak, as well as making sure their jaw is ready for adult teeth to come in. Without solid primary teeth, adult teeth can come in crooked and cramped.

How often should adults and children visit the dentist?

Both adults and children should visit the dentist at least twice a year for regular cleaning and checkups. If you notice any new or developing dental problems, call our office to be seen sooner.
