We love to see and care for the smallest smiles in your family!
The work of forming a healthy smile that will last a lifetime begins early—before the first tooth even arrives! The mistaken belief that baby teeth aren’t as important as adult teeth is still prevalent, so we work hard to dispel this notion and help you as you guide your little ones on the path to optimal oral health. Keeping baby teeth free from decay and infection can prevent premature loss. Adult teeth making their entrance is what causes healthy baby teeth to loosen and fall out. If this happens prematurely, adult teeth can shift and create bite misalignment.
So, how can you prevent infection and decay from reaching those tiny teeth, which can decrease the likelihood your little one will require orthodontic intervention?
Before their first tooth arrives, using a damp washcloth to gently rub your baby’s gums will help decrease acidity and bacteria buildup, and even help with teething pain.
Brushing baby teeth and gums with a finger brush or soft-bristled baby toothbrush and fluoride-free paste (until they can spit) can prevent decay from eating their enamel.
The arrival of your young one’s adult teeth is an incredible milestone! With their hygiene skills still developing as they poke through, an extra layer of protection can be beneficial.
Sealants can provide this extra layer of protection. With a simple, painless application of a thin, plastic coating, your child’s teeth can fight the erosion acids and bacteria cause.
Sealants are clear, so nobody will know they’re there, decreasing the risk of decay by as much as 80%! Regular, thorough flossing and brushing will help the sealants last.
When you hear the word pulp, you probably think of orange juice before your inner tooth—unless maybe you work in the field of dentistry, too.
Our teeth have what’s called a pulp chamber, where pulp, which consists of living tissues and cells, resides. If infection reaches your child’s pulp, it can result in tooth loss.
To prevent tooth loss, we can perform pulpotomies or pulpectomies. These procedures entail infection removal, chamber sterilization, and usually end with the placement of a crown.
We want your dental appointments to be free from anxiety from start to finish—from the moment you contact us to schedule to the moment you’re heading back to your busy life after your appointment. For your relaxation, we offer flat-screen TVs or music you can focus on while we work.
