An oral examination of your children’s teeth aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify aberrant habits, and to treat as needed, and as simply as possible. Additionally, parents are educated in home preventative care with brushing/flossing/fluoride techniques. A caries risk assessment and information on finger, thumb, and pacifier habits will be passed on.
We can provide advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counseling, and information on growth and development. A dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child’s first birthday.
