Good dental care starts at an early age. It is important that children learn the proper way to care for their teeth while they are young so that they learn about the importance of good oral health. This will help their adult teeth come in correctly.
Children need to learn and understand how to brush their teeth two times per day and floss at least once a day. When they are young, they will typically need assistance. Make sure that you are reminding your children to do so, as well as help them to make it part of their daily routine.
When your child is growing, it is important that they see the dentist on a regular basis. We professionally clean their teeth by removing all of the tartar and plaque that may be built up. For most children, we also offer a fluoride treatment to help their teeth stay strong.
When your child comes in for a regular checkup, we will perform a thorough examination. If there are any problems, we are able to catch them early and even treat them right away so that they do not end up becoming a more serious issue. We always look for problems such as overcrowding, bad bites, and other things so that they can feel confident with their smile.
The sooner we are able to fix problems, the easier it will be to treat them. We may not need to be nearly as aggressive which is just another reason why it is important to see your dentist on a regular basis.
Our practice enjoys working with children and provides a family-friendly environment. We are always willing to answer any of your questions so that you can fully understand the importance of proper oral care for your child.
