My Child is Turning One, When Can I Bring Them in For a Visit?

Cavities have no age boundaries, they can affect anyone. If your child is celebrating their first birthday, then it is corresponding to the time they should be seeing a dentist for their first visit. The American Academy of Pediatrics in addition to the American Dental Association, both agree and support that opinion.

Many kids develop cavities as early as by the time they are two. This is a good reason to pay a visit to a dentist sooner than later. An appointment with a dentist covers aspects such as oral care and nutrition, development of teeth and gums, the importance of baby teeth, and concerns you have regarding the dental health of your baby. Your child's very first visit to a dentist needs to be fun and enjoyable. It should be a positive one.

Going to a dentist needs to create a memorable experience and it starts at home. The kind of bond that a child develops with the dentist will determine how they grow up relating to visiting the dental office. Therefore, you should start discussing that upcoming visit with your child to ease their mind. Let them know that a dentist and the team in the dental office will be there to answer any questions they may have. Of course, kids will be curious and ask many questions while in the office. They may want to know what all of those dental tools are. So, a dentist needs to know how to create that interactive and learning experience in a fun way.

Bring your child in to our pediatric dentist for an examination!


Help Your Kids Ditch The Habit of Drinking Soda
The artificial ingredients in soda make it pretty acidic. Combining that with the acid that the bacteria in the body releases when it feeds off of these sugary drinks brings your child a step closer to having various dental issues. But all hope is not lost because there are tips you can use to help break that soda-sipping habit your kids may have developed. It may not be easy to break the craving for soda, so don't expect them to stop the habit overnight. Try to wean them off the habit slowly and in a friendly manner. Often dilute the soda using water as it reduces the acid levels as well as sugar in it. Avoid drinking sodas too because the mere act of you doing it can compel them to ask for one too. You want to lead by example. Consider offering alternative beverages like milk and water or unsweetened tea. Contact our pediatric dentist to find out more ways to stop soda cravings among kids.

First, you should brush and floss your teeth and gums before using mouthwash. If you have fluoride toothpaste, don't use mouthwash immediately after brushing. Wait a few minutes, and then use your mouthwash so that you won't wash away the fluoride.

Make sure to rinse and spit out the mouthwash. You should have enough mouthwash to swish it around in the mouth. Ensure you swish and gargle the mouthwash for about 30 seconds before you spit to ensure full effect.

Use a fluoride mouthwash to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. A mouthwash with fluoride is able to rebuild weakened enamel and slow down mineral loss in the enamel. It is also able to reverse early signs of decay and prevent the accumulation of harmful bacteria.

Talk to our dental team to see how you can effectively use mouthwash in your daily oral care. Contact us today!
