Prevent Tomorrow's Problems

Don't wait for your dental problems to worsen before going to see a dentist. If you put it off for too long, a simple filling can quickly turn into needing a full root canal. You can minimize the hassle and the cost by addressing your dental issues right away. For effective and convenient dental solutions, visit our conveniently located dental office.

Pediatric Services

Every child's smile is a precious gift. Developing a regular dental care routine early on is an important step on the road to a healthy, beautiful smile. Pediatric dentists recommend children begin routine dental visits by age one so that any problems may be detected, treated early, or even avoided completely. Check out some useful tips below for taking care of your children's teeth.

Brushing Tips:

  • Starting at birth, clean your child's gums with a soft cloth and water.
  • As soon as your child's teeth erupt, brush them with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • If they are under the age of 2, use a small “smear” of toothpaste.
  • If they're 2-5 years old, use a “pea-size” amount of toothpaste.
  • Be sure and use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste and make sure your child does not swallow it.
  • When brushing, the parent should brush the child's teeth until they are old enough to do a good job on their own.

Flossing Tips:

  • Flossing removes plaque between teeth and under the gumline where a toothbrush can't reach.
  • Flossing should begin when any two teeth touch.
  • Be sure and floss your child's teeth daily until he or she can do it alone.
