While young children are more prone to cavities than older kids and teens, it’s important to help them develop good habits. Teach your child to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and to floss daily. Try to limit sugary foods, beverages, and snacks as much as possible. These treats break down your child’s enamel over time and cause cavities. You can also prevent cavities by getting sealants applied to the surfaces of your child’s back teeth, sealing out cavity-causing bacteria.
Be sure to book dental checkups every six months, or as recommended by your child’s dentist. Keeping a regular preventive care schedule will help keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong.
You and your child can expect gentle and personalized attention designed to make your child feel comfortable at all times. We will take our time to help your child relax and explain every step of their appointment, and keep them calm throughout their appointment. Our team is trained to treat children with a gentle and nurturing approach so your child will look forward to dentist visits rather than dreading them.
Children need to see the dentist regularly just like their parents do. You can expect to take your child to their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or when their first tooth comes in. This will allow your child’s dentist to monitor the growth and development of their teeth and jaws, making timely treatment recommendations should issues arise.
