Your Child’s Dentist is as Important as a Pediatrician
We encourage good dental hygiene in your children at an
early age and make it fun and comfortable so they keep those
habits for a lifetime.
Children’s teeth are more susceptible to cavities for
various reasons. They often do not brush like they should
and need parents’ supervision in their daily dental care.
This will help ensure they brush properly. Kids usually eat
more often during the day which prolongs their teeth’s
exposure to acid (from the foods they eat). This may result
in more cavities.
If a tooth is already not as clean as it needs to be it
will have a faster development of cavities due to more
frequent contact of food and juice. If poor dietary choices
and hygiene habits are identified and corrected, it will
help to decrease the chances of decay. Applications
of a fluoride varnish also help to remineralize teeth to further
reduce the incidences of cavities.
