Understanding the Dental World for your Child
Children’s oral health is often overlooked and misunderstood. Without clear direction or a place to look for directions it can be confusing, costly, and nerve wracking. From the time the first tooth erupts parents have questions about what to put in their bottles and when to get teeth cleaned and checked. What about if your child is involved in a dental accident--what should you do? And later, what is the best way to treat them? What are the different types of sedation? How do you read a predetermination from a benefit plan to find out what is covered and what is not?
