Education is a vital component of comprehensive preventive care and our goal is to keep your child’s teeth healthy from the start.
Preventing oral health problems begins as soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, which usually occurs by his or her first birthday. Our 43147 kids dentist will discuss with you how to prevent early childhood cavities and how to clean and care for your child’s first teeth. Our friendly team of professionals is happy to discuss any topic pertaining to your child’s oral health, including thumb sucking or pacifier habits, the teething process and how to properly brush your child’s teeth. As your child gets older, we will teach him or her more about making the right lifestyle and nutritional choices for optimal oral health. Limiting your child’s intake of sugary foods and beverages helps combat the detrimental effects of plaque buildup, to maintain a cavity-free smile. At every checkup, our dentist examines the teeth, gums and their supporting structures, tracking their growth and development. Checkups also include professional teeth cleanings, which allow us to remove plaque, tartar and debris from the most difficult to reach crevices, and to guide your child on better techniques for brushing and flossing at home.
