Gentle & Patient Care for Infants to Teens
INFANTS & TODDLERS:
Babies typically begin teething around six months until well into their second year. Once the first tooth erupts, your child is now ready for their first dental visit.
It is important to brush your child's teeth with water in the morning and especially at night. Additionally, children should not be put to bed with bottles because this habit will cause tooth decay.
Children should come in at least every six months for dental check-ups and cleanings. It is important to brush twice a day (morning and night). Developing a good nighttime oral hygiene routine is especially important to combat these cavity prone years. Preventative treatments such as fluoride and sealants can reduce cavities in children and teens. Fillings and Stainless Steel Crowns are procedures that treat decay in pediatric dental patients.
Often children, will need orthodontic treatment to improve the aesthetics and function of their smile. A orthodontic consultation usually occurs only after the patient has lost all their baby teeth.
