Preventative Oral Hygiene Instructions:

Preventative care at home can help prevent cavities and maintain a healthy smile!  Oral hygiene instruction includes teaching proper brushing and flossing technique.  Prevention also includes daily healthy eating habits, use of ideal fluoride levels and the use of pit and fissure sealants. We strive to provide a fun, educational environment where children learn about the importance of good dental hygiene.

 

Restorative Dentistry:

This includes children’s fillings, crowns and prosthesis, including treatment of nursing bottle decay. Our Board-Certified Pediatric Dentists are committed to educating you on treatment options and allowing you to make informed decisions.  We want to partner with you in achieving the goal of your child’s healthy, beautiful, cavity-free smile.

 

Emergency Treatment:

Our goal is to prevent dental emergencies, but we understand that the need for urgent dental care

is sometimes necessary and can be a stressful experience for both parents and children. We strive to handle dental emergencies promptly and with compassion.

Brushing

 

The staff and pediatric dentists at Pediatric Dentistry Home can instruct you on proper brushing techniques. It is important to start brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they erupt or come into the mouth.  This is the first time that cavity-causing bacteria can be detected.  We will educate you about the amount of toothpaste to use for your child, as this can vary depending on age and decay propensity.

 

Teeth should be brushed at least 2 times a day (after breakfast and before bed) for 2 minutes each time.  The most important time to brush is at night before bedtime because salivary flow, and its buffering effect, is diminished during sleep.

 

Flossing

 

For areas between the teeth that a toothbrush can't reach, dental floss is used to remove food particles and plaque.  Dental floss is

a thin thread of waxed nylon that can be used by stretching between your fingers or by using a pre-fabricated floss holder.

 

Our staff will let you know the correct time to begin flossing your child’s teeth.  Floss before bedtime each night to make sure teeth are squeaky clean!
