Infants & Toddlers
While most babies don't start getting teeth until they’re about six months old, dental care is important from the very beginning. Before your child's first birthday, many dentists recommend an initial visit to ensure proper care and cleaning of teeth and gums.
It's a good idea to get used to cleaning the gums of your baby soon after birth. Even though they may be a little bit fussy at first, your young one will eventually get used to having their mouth cleaned like other parts of the body.
When you begin early on the path of proactive dental care, many children grow up to enjoy brushing their teeth and taking care of their smile.
It's extremely important to take good care of your child's baby teeth. Yes, they eventually fall out, but baby teeth play a key role in helping your child bite, chew food, and speak properly. Teaching proper oral care to your child at a young age is a lifelong investment in both oral and overall health.
You can start by setting an example. Taking good care of your teeth sends a message that your child needs to be aware of the value of their oral health. And anything that makes dental care fun like brushing with your child or allowing them to pick their toothbrush helps keep them interested in proper oral care.
When your child visits us for essential dental care, many of the same treatment and assessment options that adults have are available to children. These include X - rays, dental sealants, orthodontics, and more.
Teens & Young Adults
Teens often face a unique set of challenges that are not faced by younger kids. Braces, third molars, facial appearance, and bad breath are just a few new things your adolescents typically worry about as they make the transition to adulthood.
With regular visits to the dentist, proper oral hygiene, eating a nutritional diet, and taking care of their clear aligners, mouth-guards and other orthodontic appliances, your teen is doing their part in working with our team to ensure they achieve healthy smiles into adulthood.
As an adult, you are not immune to dental problems. In addition to maintaining a good home care routine, the best thing you can do is schedule regular dental check-ups every six months for professional cleanings.
Besides making sure your teeth, gums and other important oral structures are healthy; there is a wide range of cosmetic-focused options available to help your smile look and feel its best. These can range from clear orthodontic aligners to whitening teeth and life-dental restorations such as veneers.
