San Francisco Cosmetic Dentistry Pro Discuss Welcoming Infants to Their Practices 

by Greg Larson Saturday, December 01, 2012
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – Dr. Marielle Pariseau wrote an article for the Journal of the Canadian Dental Association urging dentists to welcome infant patients. She was surprised by the findings of an unofficial poll where she asked parents if their infants had received dental checkups before age 1.

Dr. Greg Larson and other San Francisco cosmetic dentistry pros agree with the ADA suggestion that babies receive dental checkups by their first birthdays.

Pariseau learned numerous parents tried to make appointments for their infants and were discouraged. Some parents were advised to schedule appointments when their children were older, and some were advised to schedule appointments when their child cut all their baby teeth. Some dentists don’t want to see children under 3.

Larson, a San Francisco teeth whitening specialist, understands tooth decay can strike at any age. Research shows dental caries affect 28 percent of kids between 2 and 5, and 1 in 5 of those cavities goes untreated. Pariseau sheds light on the misguided thought that infants don’t need checkups because they don’t yet have all their teeth.

"Like a canary in a coal mine, the mouth offers clues regarding the state of balance in one's health and can be a warning of future health issues," Pariseau writes.

Research continues to uncover links between oral health and total body health. Inadequate dental care can cause or intensify other health issues, including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, oral cancers, preterm births and arthritis. Larson and his team practice pain free dentistry to help patients receive expert dental care with total comfort.

Some dentists may not be prepared to treat the tiniest infant patients. Dentists who do not treat infants should refer parents to a trusted pediatric dentist and educate their dental teams on the significance of infant oral care. Doctors can better treat unbalanced tooth developments and heredity issues when they’re spotted early.

Larson’s team can point parents to a top pediatric dentist in the area that serves infant patients. Larson Dentistry offers neuromuscular treatment, dental implants and Invisalign treatment to greater people in greater San Francisco.
