Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Preventive Services

How can we help you?

Dental Frequent Questions | Joes R Koch DDSWe believe that we can provide the highest quality dentistry when our patients are an active part of the decision-making process. Answering your questions isn't just a courtesy—it gives us an opportunity to explain things to you in such a way that you feel confident about the information you're receiving and what it means to you and the direction of your oral health care. No question is too small, and the only silly question is the one that goes unasked. 

We've shared a few of the questions we hear most often below. You probably have plenty of your own, though, so please don't ever hesitate to contact our West Chester dental office, and we'll find the answers you're looking for.

Preventive Services

Why Age One?

We understand this may seem young to some parents. However, the sooner we start providing preventive services like cleanings, the better the odds of your child enjoying a healthy smile. Early visits also establish a pattern of proper dental care for your child and help avoid dental anxiety that can last into adulthood.

Picture your child’s primary teeth as the building blocks for good oral health. Baby teeth are designed to hold a space for permanent teeth that will follow. If a baby tooth is lost too soon, surrounding teeth may start to shift into the empty space. This movement can lead to crooked or crowded teeth and a host of other oral health problems.
