Teeth For Life


Teeth For Life

Practicing good oral hygiene means maintaining your child’s smile by visiting the dentist regularly and taking care of her teeth and gums in between checkups. Our practice wants to ensure that your child gets the most out of her office visits and that her teeth stay healthy for life! We’ll work with you to provide complete dental care and show you how to maintain your child’s smile at home with the right dental products for you and your family.

Dental Cleanings and Regular Checkups

Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining good oral health. During regular checkups, the hygienist will:

  • • Check for any problems that may not be seen or felt
  • • Look for cavities or other signs of tooth decay
  • • Inspect the teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
  • • Provide thorough teeth cleaning, rinse, and polish
  • • Visiting the dentist every six months gives you and your child a chance to talk with your doctor and receive answers to any questions you may have about your family’s oral health. Checkups are also a great way to learn about new treatments that may benefit your child’s smile.

Choosing the Right Toothpaste and Toothbrush

From toothpaste and mouthwash to toothbrushes and dental floss, it’s important to choose the right products. Remember that when you’re looking for a new toothpaste or toothbrush, choose one approved by the American Dental Association (ADA). Your dentist can also help by recommending certain dental products for use at home.
