Preventative care plays a huge role in the overall oral and physical health of your child. Many people do not realize how important it is for your child to brush their teeth daily and see the dentist on a regular basis. It is so important because it allows their adult teeth to come into a healthy environment. It also teaches them how to have healthy teeth and gums for life.
Dr. Paddy and his staff work hard to ensure that your child understands the importance of their oral health. Just like adults, if decay begins, it can lead to many issues in a child’s mouth. This can mean problems for their oral health, but also for their overall well-being. This is why preventative care is so critical.
One of the best ways that your child can have a healthy mouth is by properly brushing and flossing their teeth. When you bring them to see us we will make sure that they are using the proper techniques.
We encourage you to bring your children in for a cleaning every 6 months. We may take x-rays while they are here as well as giving them a fluoride treatment so that their teeth stay strong. Dr. Paddy and his staff will be able to detect any cavities and educate your child on healthy daily habits.
We understand that the dentist can be intimidating for a child. That is why we provide a calming environment and make their experience a positive one.
