As soon as your baby is born it is important to keep their mouths clean to protect them against infection. One way to keep your baby’s mouth clean from bacteria is to gently wipe their gums with a soft, damp cloth after they have eaten. You should also avoid putting your baby to bed with a bottle of milk or juice as this can lead to tooth decay when their baby teeth grow in.
You can keep your baby’s new teeth clean with a baby toothbrush and toothpaste. They can also begin dental care at this stage and you can bring them in for cleanings and dental exams to ensure their teeth are developing well. The best protection for your child’s teeth is regular cleaning so we will show you how to teach them the proper way to brush their teeth and floss.
With the growth of adult teeth we will continue regular professional cleanings, fluoride treatments and dental examinations to ensure your child’s continued good dental health. When they enter their teens their wisdom teeth will begin to emerge and may need to be removed to protect their other teeth.
We help seniors and their caregivers manage changing dental health needs through consultation on mobility issues, denture wear and other issues.
