Pediatric Preventive Dentistry
Our pediatric dental services are intended to detect and prevent oral health at the earliest stages. Our dentists are also commited to educating our young patients about the importance of maintaining good hygiene habits for their teeth, including brushing and flossing.
Here are several steps you can take to prevent cavities and tooth decay. Our dentist recommends that you follow guidelines to help minimize your chances for developing cavities:
- Brush and floss your teeth every day. You should brush at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a fluoridated toothpaste.
- Maintain a balanced, healthy diet with a limited amount of very sugary or acidic foods.
- Visit our office at least twice a year for a routine teeth cleaning and dental exam.
- Ask your dentist about dental sealants and fluoride treatment to see if they are right for your smile.
