Maintain A Healthy Smile With Preventive Dental Care
Preventive dental care is important for patients of every age, starting when your young child’s first primary teeth begin to erupt. Adopting excellent oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular visits to the dentist office can help keep your smile in optimal condition for a lifetime. Try to incorporate these key tips into your at-home oral hygiene routine:
- Brush your teeth twice a day. Don’t forget to brush the surface of the tongue.
- Floss your teeth at least once a day. Flossing helps remove debris from between the teeth.
- Use a mouthwash to help remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
While practicing preventive dental care at home is important, so is visiting the dentist on a regular basis. Routine dental visits are set into place to assess the condition of your teeth, mouth, and gums to determine if there are any signs of dental dysfunction. With the results from your dental examination, we can recommend the best form of treatment for your smile. We work with you to build a comprehensive treatment plan that is designed for your specific needs.
Children’s Dental Services at Bella Smiles
Drs. Lotardo, Pop, and Caesar offer children’s dental services including dental sealants and sports mouthguards, making our family dentist offices a convenient location for all of your family’s dental health needs.
We recommend that you bring your child to the dentist once the primary teeth have begun to erupt. Even though your child is very young at this time, early visits are important- they offer the opportunity for us to look for any signs of tooth development problems that may also have an effect on other aspects of normal growth and development such as speech.
Children who establish good oral habits early on are more likely to enjoy a healthy smile and maintain it for a lifetime.
