Do you want your child to have a strong and healthy smile? If so, there are things you can do regularly to keep their teeth and gums in tip-top shape. Our pediatric dentists are happy to tell you all about those things because he also wants your child to have the top-notch smile they deserve. It’s best to:

-Keep them up on oral hygiene (To do so, you should brush their teeth twice a day with a child-sized toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste—but only if they are 2 years old or older. If they are younger, just use water. It’s also important to floss their teeth daily.)

-Bring them to our office every six months (These regular dental checkups can clean your child’s mouth, strengthen their teeth, and also help them feel comfortable and relaxed in the dental chair.)

-Protect their teeth with dental sealants (Dental sealants are thin shells that are placed over the back molars. They are typically used to protect permanent teeth from decay and enamel erosion.)
