The keys to top quality kids dental care are education and consistent attention to good oral hygiene habits. We at Brady, Grife, & Koyl work hard to ensure that your child has the best opportunity to avoid tooth decay and its effects so that she or he can maintain his or her baby teeth (primary) until they fall out on their natural schedule to make room for adult teeth (permanent). Our Coldwater kids dentist has created an atmosphere that is welcoming, non-threatening, and filled with smiles so that your child will feel relaxed visiting our dental office
The first and most vital aspect to achieving and maintaining optimal dental well-being for your child is adhering to a nutritious diet limited in sugar, including beverages. Juice may be filled with vitamins, but it’s also filled with sugar. Our Coldwater kids dentist is happy to guide you toward treats that are delicious and that also promote dental health. It is also recommended that your child brush her or his teeth after every meal and floss daily. This will serve to remove the majority of plaque and food particles from his or her mouth.
Of course, a visit two times per year to see our Coldwater kids dentist is also a big part of the strategy. This includes a visual inspection of your child’s teeth, x-rays, and a teeth cleaning. It’s important to get even the smallest cavities filled promptly, before they have a chance to grow larger and make your child more prone to a tooth infection. On her or his first visit, there will time to get acquainted with our office, equipment, staff, and our pediatric dentist, of course.
Think of our Coldwater kids dentist as your partner in promoting your child’s optimal oral health. Expect handy tips on how to manage teething, proper nutrition, and the role that fluoride treatments can play in preventing cavities. If you have any questions, now or in the future, you should always feel free to ask them. Remember, good experiences early on will set the stage for your child to have a lifetime of positive feelings about dentistry.
