Early Dental Care

Practicing excellent oral hygiene is the key to maintaining good overall health – for patients of all ages! Parents must introduce proper oral care early in a child’s life, as early as infancy. Parents are responsible for ensuring their children brush and floss every day, and we encourage them to lead by example.

Why Fix Baby Teeth?

  • Baby teeth, just like adult teeth, have a nerve that can feel sensations such as hot and cold. If not taken care of and a deep cavity progresses to the nerve, a child can experience pain, swelling, and infection.
  • Cavities can cause many real-life issues for children including low self-esteem, difficulties with chewing/eating, speech, and even potential for crowding of permanent teeth in the future.

Before and After Pictures

Regular Visits

Visiting your dentist at least twice a year allows us to thoroughly clean your teeth, and dental exams give us the ability to evaluate any potential problems (i.e. cavities, gingivitis, etc.) before they become more serious. We are also able to recognize whether a patient is getting proper nutrition, maintaining a proper oral hygiene regimen and whether there are any growth or development problems. To ensure you and your family are practicing good oral hygiene at home, be sure to:
  • Brush at least three times a day using a fluoridated toothpaste
  • Floss daily
  • Eat a well-balanced, healthy diet
