Pediatric Dentist

A pediatric dentist knows tooth decay is the most prevalent disease affecting children under the age of five, yet it is almost entirely preventable. By brushing twice per day for two minutes at a time, children can significantly reduce their chances of getting a cavity, and help themselves earn a healthy adult smile.

However, it can be difficult for new brushers to enjoy brushing their teeth, and brush long enough to make a difference. Until your child’s teeth begin to touch one another, they do not need to learn to floss.

Preventative dental care is essential to help children build good dental habits at a young age. Fortunately, the most important elements of dental hygiene are as simple as brushing and flossing your child’s teeth every day.

Dentist for Child

Children's Dental Care

We don’t come into the world and know exactly what to do in every situation, so when we’re young we look to our peers around us for the answers. We copy them and put our own spin on it as we go along. Now that we are the peers, it’s our turn to be the example. We better be a good one.

Help your child brush their teeth at least twice a day—especially after breakfast and before bedtime. You will need to brush for them until they are old enough to handle the toothbrush on their own, usually around the age of 6. Even then, it’s a good idea to supervise to be sure your child is brushing thoroughly and using the right amount of toothpaste.
Our pediatric dentist wants you to remind your child that it’s important to clean all teeth, not just those up front.
