Super Smiles For Life

implant dentures Farmington

Your child should be naturally proud of his or her smile. It expresses joy, laughter, and fun! To make sure your child has a healthy and desirable smile, start early. Really early.

Dr. Michael Tornow recommends that you bring your child in for their first dental visit soon after their first birthday. An early check is the first step in preventing troubles and setting the stage for lifelong dental health. dentist Tornow will keep the visit short, but carry out a thorough visual examination to make sure there are no concerns.

Dr. Tornow and the team and Sundance Dental Care will counsel you on good dental procedures at home, such as correct brushing and flossing. You will also be guided regarding healthy eating choices and the impact of poor choices. It is especially critical to keep your toddler from eating sticky or hard candies that lodge in molars and spaces between teeth. It is also important to monitor the amount of juice they drink and keep it in a cup instead of a bottle.

Any time sugary foods or drinks are in contact with teeth, the enamel is weakened from the acid those substances contain. Prolonged exposure begins to wear the enamel away, setting the stage for cavities. Unlike broken bones that regenerate, once enamel is gone, it’s essentially gone, though fluoride can remineralize weakened enamel to a small degree.

Promoting a healthy, low sugar diet is always prime for your toddler’s teeth. If your baby or toddler needs a bottle to calm down and go to sleep, make sure that the bottle contains only water.

Other vital habits are to brush and floss your teeth in front of your child. (If you have never been regular flossing – it’s time to start!) Let them see that it is a priority and a comfortable habit in your life. Brush their teeth with a soft bristled brush and a small amount of toothpaste. Let them try it, but always go over their teeth afterward, making sure each tooth is brushed. When finished, give them a cup of water to help rinse the toothpaste out.

Before coming to Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Farmington, talk to your child about the upcoming appointment and let them know that their teeth are going to be checked. Dr. Tornow will help your child feel proud of their effort and help them have a positive visit, the first of many to come.
