3 Dental Dangers For Toddlers

Pendleton family dentist

Hello new parents! We know that keeping babies and toddlers safe and healthy requires constant effort. You clip them tightly in their car seats, baby-proof your medicine cabinet and guard the stairway with a gate. You take them to your pediatrician for immunizations, check-ups and an occasional prescription for an antibiotic.

Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS wants to remind you about another critical component of child wellness: oral health. Sadly, we see too many cases of completely preventable child tooth decay. You have probably received the following important advice, but it bears repeating:

  1. Don’t put babies to bed with a bottle!
  2. Don’t allow youth to drink juice continually during the day!
  3. Prevent frequent snacking on sugary foods!

Oral health is intrinsically connected to overall physical health and normal development. If your oral hygiene is not up to par, now is the time to shape up and help your young child develop prime oral health behaviors that will serve them well throughout their life.

Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS recommends beginning twice-yearly dental visits around age one or when the first tooth appears. Our friendly staff helps young patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their exams.

Dr. Dale Behner can advise you on thumb sucking, dental sealants, normal child tooth development, braces, athletic tooth protection, fluoride, or any other pediatric dental issue.

In addition to children’s dentistry, Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS offers the full spectrum of industry-leading restorative and cosmetic dental care.

If your toddler has not yet visited the dentist, schedule an appointment ASAP by calling us at 317-842-2337.

Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

—Pat S.

Jeanie M.

I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

—Jeanie M.

Leslee D.

I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

—Leslee D.

Cindy M.

My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

—Cindy M.

Judy S.

The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

—Judy S.
