Children

 We treat children! Baby teeth should be cleaned as soon as they erupt. Clean your baby’s teeth with a soft washcloth or gauze after every bottle or meal. When more than one tooth erupts, you can soak a small bristled child-sized (age-appropriate) toothbrush in warm water before using it on your baby’s teeth.

Baby teeth should be brushed using a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. Use water without fluoride until approximately six months of age. Encourage your children to brush their teeth independently in the morning but assist them at night right before bed to insure a thorough cleaning is received one tome per day.

The first dental visit should be at age two to establish a long-term dental hygiene and professional dental cleaning plan. At this visit, dental sealant application may be applied to protect teeth from decay and are appropriate as soon as a tooth erupts.

We work to create a comfortable treatment experience for the child by allowing parents to accompany them into the treatment room as well as using the laughing gas if needed. We will help build their confidence with good experiences in the most formative years that will allow them to build good dental habits for a life time.
