First years as a child can determine our dental and oral health for the rest of our lives. That is why dental researchers suggest that parents should start oral hygiene care as soon as the first tooth erupts, around the age of six months. They can do this by using and infant toothbrush and water, then and after the child reaches the age of two, a little flouride toothpaste can be used.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, as well, recommends that infants should be seen by a dentist after the eruption of the first primary tooth and by no later than the age of one. The health of deciduous teeth are very important as they form the base of permanent teeth. Regular dental checks are extremely important for children of all ages.
Our pediatric dental treatments include dental hygiene information and demonstration for children and parents as well.
