Caring For Primary Teeth
Primary or baby teeth help children speak, chew, and form a path for permanent future teeth. Primary teeth need to be taken care of because cavities and infection can lead to possible dental concerns and other health problems. As soon as your child’s first tooth shows, they can be cleaned with a wet washcloth or wet gauze. If a toothbrush is used, it should be an infant toothbrush that is the correct size for your child. When teeth come in, use a small amount of toothpaste to brush your child’s teeth twice a day. The upper front teeth or the upper primary molars found furthest back in the mouth are the most prone to decay. These primary teeth should also be flossed to clean between them.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Patients of all ages can develop cavities, so it is important to take preventive measures to keep their smiles protected. At your child’s first visit to our office, our team will asses your child’s oral development, screen for cavities, and gently clean their teeth. We ensure our young patients are comfortable throughout their visit. Our goal is to help them learn how to maintain a healthy smile and care for their teeth and gums. Our staff will help you schedule regular dental visits for your child
As you grow older, you may experience a range of age-related dental issues. It is important to address these problems as soon as possible to prevent future complications. Our team can assess your smile and determine the best plan of action for your dental needs. For example, if you are dealing with tooth loss, we may recommend replacing missing teeth with dental implants, a dental bridge, or denture. Our dentists can also address any age-related issues, such as worn teeth, yellowed teeth, and dry mouth.
