Pediatric Cleaning & Prevention
Keeping a regular preventative maintenance schedule with your child’s hygienist and our doctors helps you prevent not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also avoid costly procedures and extra time in the hygiene chair.
A regular home prevention routine usually consists of having your child brush at least twice a day and floss at least once per day. But did you know there are other tools to make taking care of your child’s mouth a little easier? Depending on your child’s needs, there is special toothpaste, rinses, and even flossing aids that can help your child keep their smile bright and healthy for years to come. True Dental Care can help you find the best tools to enhance your child’s daily hygiene routine making their professional cleaning appointments shorter and less stressful.
Another significant factor in your child’s oral health is their diet. Acidic foods and drinks can erode enamel just as a balanced diet can help keep their teeth and gums strong and healthy.
Regular professional exams and cleanings, a dedicated at-home hygiene routine, and a healthy, balanced diet can help prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.
Bad breath, also called halitosis, can be a big problem in social situations for your kids. But believe it or not, it may be an indication of a more serious condition. Bring up your concerns about your children’s breath with dentist to get a handle on the cause — and possible treatments.
