Dentist in Hanford treats kids of all ages
Protecting babies from tooth decayBabies can develop white spots on the teeth, which is a sign of dental caries. Therefore, we recommend wiping the baby’s mouth with a soft, moist washcloth after feedings. It is important to avoid giving the baby juice until 6 months old. Sugary foods and beverages such as soda or candy should not be given to the baby. After the first tooth erupts, we recommend brushing it with a soft bristle toothbrush. It is important to schedule the baby’s first dental appointment after the first tooth erupts or by 1 years old.
Planning for the first dental visitWe hope to be a part of major milestones in each family such as a child’s first dental appointment. We can assure you that we do all we can to make every visit enjoyable. Our staff has the training and expertise to provide the dental care children need. As your child grows, we can recommend an oral health regimen to meet his or her unique needs. Our recommendations often include brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups every six months.
Making oral hygiene a priorityJust as parents safeguard their homes before babies take their first steps, it is important to practice preventive dental care. For toddlers, we recommend brushing teeth after breakfast and before bedtime. We encourage parents to make brushing the teeth a fun activity for children.
