The American Dental Association recommends parents begin brushing their infant’s gums at birth. You may start by gently brushing your child’s gums with a soft infant toothbrush, or by taking a cloth with water on it and rubbing softly in a back-and-forth motion. Once your child’s teeth first appear, you should begin a regimen of brushing twice per day with a fluoridated toothpaste and a soft toothbrush made for small children. Parents should assist in this process at these young ages to begin cultivating healthy oral health care habits for their children. Call us today if you have any questions.
A child's first dental visit should be by the age of one, or as soon as their first tooth erupts. Both the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend for a child’s first visit to occur before the time of their first birthday. Their first exam will establish positive habits for your child and introduce them to their dentist. Results show that early examination and preventative care protect a child’s smile for the long term. Your child should visit a dentist as soon as their first tooth arrives, and certainly no later than the age of one. Call us today for an appointment.
At Kids Dental & Orthodontics, we teach our young patients to create an early practice of preventative dental habits. It’s our belief that educating them to solve problems before they happen is key. That means they should establish a routine that has them brushing and flossing two to three times each and every day for at least two minutes. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Establishing a habit of seeing the dentist twice per year is important for your child. These visits will help them remain free of cavities by reducing plaque build-up on their teeth. It is beneficial for them to receive regular exams by a licensed Dentist in order to evaluate their needs for fluoride, sealants or other considerations. We are here to help and provide the best standard of care in the industry.
If your child is required to receive orthodontic treatment it is critical to keep their braces, teeth and gums clean. It is important to avoid certain foods that may stick to the appliance, brackets and wires. The build up of plaque is another concern for children wearing braces, because if it is left on their teeth or braces, they may experience swelling of the gums, bad breath, tooth discoloring or decay.
We look forward to meeting you and your family. Please reach out to us today, so we may schedule your complimentary consultation with our Dentist.
