Establish Regular Care
We love helping our youngest patients discover an interest in dental health. We speak to them in words they can understand to help them feel comfortable and we invite parents to join them in the treatment room, too. The time for a child’s first visit to our office is from the time their first tooth erupts or by their first birthday. This ensures our team can take a look in their mouth, check for any early signs of problems and help you with tips for how to care for your child’s teeth at home.
Establishing regular care from an early age sets your child up for a lifetime of good oral health and helps them develop a positive attitude toward dental appointments.
Children's Home Dental Care
Staying on top of a child’s home dental care is extremely important, especially given that there is no fluoride in our local drinking water. Parents should brush and floss their children’s teeth twice a day up to the age of five. After that the child should be able to take care of their own teeth.
It is also important to avoid giving your child juice or other sugary drinks at night after their teeth have been brushed. Sugary drinks before bedtime allows the sugar to sit on the teeth for the entire night which greatly increases the chance of tooth decay.
