Maintaining healthy teeth is important for both children and adults. American Dental Association recommends that a child be seen by a dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts. The dentist can check for cavities and also educate the child and the parent on good oral hygiene. A well balanced diet and limiting sugary snacks, brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day and regular dental checkups will aid in healthy teeth for children and adults. Detrimental habits like thumb/digit sucking, tongue thrusting, lip or cheek biting can affect facial growth and development and should be addressed at a young age. In fact, periodical checkup by a family dentist is must for maintaining healthy teeth.
We enjoy seeing both adults and children in our practice. Parents often have a lot of questions regarding their children's teeth such as; when do I start taking them to the dentist? What brush/toothpaste should our children use? Is Fluoride toothpaste safe for my child? Etc. Our experienced children's dentist will answer any questions you may have. We will evaluate your child and provide preventive and restorative dentistry for children including fluoride treatments, sealants and tooth colored fillings. We have new technology including air abrasion(Drilless dentistry), Diagnodent (Laser cavity detector), Digital X-rays (less radiation than conventional X-rays).
Dental sealants are effective preventative treatment that helps protect permanent molars from developing cavities.
Air abrasion is a technique that removes dental decay by blowing clean dry air along with abrasive particles on the tooth surface. Diagnodent is newer technique for cavity detection based on lasers. It has the capability to locate even the small cavities.
Recent research has shown a strong link between general and oral health such as heart and lung disease, stroke and diabetes chronic oral infections and low birth and premature births. Our team of dedicated professionals will help you maintain a healthy mouth.
