Caring for Your Child’s Teeth
The basics of children’s oral care are largely the same as adults. Brushing twice a day for two minutes, flossing, and regular dental checkups and cleanings are the cornerstones of healthy teeth. What makes children’s teeth different is that their smiles are still forming and these steps will need to be introduced gradually to ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles.
My Family Dentistry is your source for oral care for the whole family.
Many of us have families of our own and understand the importance of comfortable, worry-free dentistry for your kids. We create a warm and welcoming environment for your child as we perform:
- Oral exams
- Fillings and sealants
- Cavity prevention education
- Teeth cleaning
- Myofunctional therapy
- Mouth guards/Night guards
We strive to make visiting the dentist as fun and safe as possible for your little ones.
Expert Care from an Experienced Family Dentistry Team
Visiting the dentist can be scary regardless of your age. As a parent, you’re in the perfect position to help your child get over this fear and not be afraid of visiting the dentist. The best ways to help your child overcome their fear of the dentist is to:
- Talk to them before their visit
- Bring distractions to the office
- Read books about going to the dentist
Bringing distractions such as your child’s favorite toy or game is a wonderful way to pass the time and keep their mind off the dentist’s chair. At My Family Dentistry, we have a TV in the waiting room to help keep them occupied until their appointment. It can also help to read books about visiting the dentist to help prepare your child for their visit.
We’re happy to answer any questions you have and provide a tour of our office. Feel free to bring along your little one, too, so they can become familiar with the office environment.
