Adopting Healthy Oral Habits
We encourage all parents to work closely with their children to develop healthy oral habits from an early age. Once your child’s first tooth erupts, examine them regularly to look out for discoloration or decay. Avoid giving your child a feeding bottle or pacifier to suck at bedtime, which often impacts tooth development.
Long-term and frequent consumption of sugary drinks like juices, milk, and formula can lead to a condition called ‘baby bottle tooth decay.’ The sugars contained in sweetened foods and drinks accumulate around the infant’s gums and teeth, causing decay.
Please feel free to visit our dentist in Bolton, ON, for preventive and restorative children’s dentistry near you.
Children’s Dental Cleaning Procedure
Before we start the dental cleaning process, our pediatric dentists will review your child’s oral and overall health history to identify any factors that may affect dental health. Certain antibiotic medications or genetic factors may be associated with an increased risk of decay or gum disease.
After a detailed examination, our hygienist will then take over and thoroughly clean your child’s teeth by removing plaque and tartar. If left untreated, tartar causes decay and tooth cavities. Once your child’s teeth are clean, we will apply fluoride varnish for added protection against tooth decay and bacterial infection.
We suggest bringing in your child every six months to help us closely monitor your child’s oral health. If your child is more susceptible to caries, you may need to bring them for more frequent dental visits.
Our team at South Hill Dental in Bolton, ON, works hard to help your child feel at ease from the very first visit.
