Dentist near me in Marietta offers tips for baby and child dental care

Baby Dentist near Me Marietta - Marietta Pediatric Dentist Oral hygiene is important for the whole family. Sparkling smiles, healthy gums, and strong teeth are all results of good oral care. Oral care is important for the whole family and it starts early. Dr. Lan Vo and Dr. Sean Breckley of 32 Dental Practice offer the following tips to ensure that your whole family has the healthiest of mouths.

Start early. Taking care of a baby’s mouth and gums is important, even before the first tooth erupts. Parents should gently wipe the gums with a soft cloth. After the first tooth comes in, you can introduce your baby to brushing, being sure to use water and a soft toothbrush, specially made for infants. Schedule your baby’s first dental checkup before his or her first birthday. This visit is important to educate you on proper care for your baby’s teeth and introduces your child to the idea of visiting a dentist.

Stay consistent. As your child grows, be sure that teeth brushing is part of his or her morning and bedtime routine. Once the teeth begin to touch, introduce flossing to the routine. Also be sure to maintain a bi-annual visit to the dentist’s office.

Make brushing fun. Let your children choose their toothbrushes and toothpaste. If they like using them, they are more likely to enjoy brushing their teeth. Be a role model and let your children watch you brush your own teeth, sing silly songs, or laugh when you spit in the sink.

Know your children. Are they brushing appropriately or just winging it? Until you’re sure that they are getting those hard-to-reach back teeth and applying the appropriate amount of pressure, brush their teeth for them or at least supervise while they do it.

Be careful. When children begin to play sports, be sure they wear mouth guards to protect their teeth. Provide nutritious foods and beverages and try to avoid those with a lot of sugar such as soda, candy and fruit juice. Also take care when eating hard foods – teach your child not to bite into candy or chew on ice.

The team at 32 Dental knows that a healthy mouth starts at home. That’s why we take our time to discuss your oral hygiene habits and provide educational information. If you live in the Marietta, GA, area, call today to schedule a visit with one of our excellent and caring dentists.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
