As your child grows, he or she will need regular checkups and hygiene visits to ensure optimal oral health. We will also teach oral homecare techniques so that your child can learn how to effectively brush and floss, with your help at first, then on his or her own.
Dental sealants or fluoride supplements might be recommended. Sealants are thin, clear coatings that protect hard-to-clean back teeth from the sugars that cause tooth decay. Fluoride attracts other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel and ward off cavities. Because most bottled water does not contain fluoride, your child may be deficient in this essential mineral. Sealants and fluoride supplements are quick and easy protective measures that can save your little one from cavities.
