Brushing Is a Team Sport

Keeping your child’s teeth healthy is very important. Taking care of their baby teeth will help ensure their permanent teeth come in correctly and will allow your child to learn good oral hygiene habits at an early age, which is a vital skill they will use throughout their life. However, getting your child to start practising these oral hygiene habits can be difficult. One of the best ways to help them get in the habit of brushing and flossing their teeth is to do it together as a family every day.

Why Start Young?

Many parents are under the false impression that children don’t need to take care of their baby teeth because these teeth will be replaced with permanent teeth later in life anyway. However, a child’s baby teeth can have a large effect on how that child eats, chews, and talks, and can even effect how their permanent teeth grow in. Taking care of these baby teeth is very important and teaches your child good dental hygiene patterns at an early age, which ensures that they’ll be able to take care of their adult teeth once they do grow in.

How Do You Help Your Child Brush?

Knowing that it’s important for your child to learn to brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day doesn’t make it easy to do. Often times, children don’t want to brush their teeth because they don’t understand why it’s important. One way of helping your child brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day is by teaching them why it’s important. You can explain to them that food can get caught in between their teeth and cause damage to their teeth (possibly even cavities) if it’s not cleaned out by consistent brushing and flossing.

Make It a Family Affair

After your child knows why it’s important to brush their teeth, it may become easier for you to help them do it every day. One of the best ways to help your child brush their teeth for two minutes twice a day is to do it together as a family. Small children are quick to pick up on things that their parents do — they’re very good at copying things that they hear and see. If they see their parents and older siblings brushing their teeth twice a day, they will want to brush their own teeth, too.


General Dentistry involves professional checkups and cleaning in maintaining teeth and gums so that they remain healthy for a life-time: Checkup, X-rays & Consultation
Cavities Fillings and Fillings Replacements
Scaling, Cleaning & Polishing
Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them.Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth — an especially important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures and bridges — as well as individual crowns placed over implants — feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.

They specialize in treating and handling dental and facial problems that involve restoring missing tooth and jaw structures. A prosthodontist is highly trained in cosmetics, dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, temporomandibular disorders (TMJ/TMD), and more.
Endodontists are dentists who specialize in maintaining teeth through endodontic therapy -- procedures, involving the soft inner tissue of the teeth, called the pulp. The word "endodontic" comes from "endo" meaning inside and "odont" meaning tooth. Like many medical terms, it's Greek.
Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings.
Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. The potential for it to improve dental procedures rests in the dentist’s ability to control power output and the duration of exposure on the tissue (whether gum or tooth structure), allowing for treatment of a highly specific area of focus without damaging surrounding tissues.
Fast facts on pain after a root canal: A root canal will treat the diseased tissue (pulp) while preserving the rest of the tooth. A person will be given anesthetic before the procedure, so it is usually no more painful than a typical dental filling. If a root canal fails, redoing it can fix the problem.
In general, pediatric dentists see patients from aged 0 to 18 year old. Like pediatric doctors, we specialize in taking care of young teeth, and even in the high school years, your child's teeth are changing. We recommend seeing a normal dentist after 18 years of age.
