Pediatric dentistry

Childhood dental disease is the most common chronic condition among children -- even though cavities are nearly 100% preventable (CDS Review magazine). It is recommended that children as young as 18 months visit the dentist, because, it is very important to maintain the health of the primary teeth. Neglected cavities can lead to problems that affect the developing permanent teeth. Primary teeth (baby teeth) are important for:

  • Proper chewing and eating
  • Providing space for the permanent teeth and guiding them into the correct position
  • Permitting normal development of the jaw bones and muscles.
  • Proper development of speech

 

While the front four teeth last until 6-7 years of age, the back teeth (cuspids and molars) aren’t replaced until age 10-13.

 

Dr. Cozzi's office is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems.
