Prevention is the best defense!!! 🤢

What is our office doing to help protect our patients and our team from getting sick?

As a practice who serve children, we already follow the strictest standards of infection control and utilize universal precautions with every patient. As an added precaution, we’ve expanded our office cleaning protocol and are wiping contact surfaces like doorknobs, toys hourly and in between patients/families. 

Please keep in mind that we treat kids through the course of our day and there is regular traffic in and out of our doors all day long. When you come into the office, wash your hands in the bathroom, or use the hand sanitizers at the front desk. We ask that if you or your children are sick, please exercise caution and reschedule their appointments. Please reschedule if your child has any symptoms of respiratory illness such as a cough, fever, sneezing, or shortness of breath. We can discuss options with you if your child has a dental emergency or is in pain.

Please call or email us if you have any questions at all. We are always happy to speak to you.

What are some mouth healthy snacks?

When I discuss with parents about what type of food that are healthy for their child to eat, I generally say try to stick with more natural food and less process food. Process food is not only not good for our teeth but also not good for our body.  Below is a caries balance sheet that shows factors that weaken your teeth and factors that protect your teeth. Hopefully you will find the chart helpful.

Early establishment of good oral hygiene, regular dental visit, and nutritional habits will follow your child into adulthood.

Start Dental care for your baby early:

Early care of your child’s teeth and gums is essentials.  Dental care should start when their first tooth appears. 

  • To start, you should gently clean your infant’s gums and new teeth with a clean wet washcloth after feeding. When your child start eating solid food, you can move to soft-bristled brushed with a smear of fluoridated toothpaste. 
  • Another important part of your child’s dental care is to start regular dental visits around their first birthday.  Their primary (baby) teeth should be erupting and you will want to begin prevention measures against tooth decay.  Early visit to the dentist will allow your child to be used to the unfamiliar surroundings of a dental office and the pediatric dentist will go over some important dental care information.
  • Some of daily nutritional habits can help your child reduce the risk of getting cavities: You should not allow your child to sleep with a bottle filled with anything but water.   Milk, juices, and other sugary drinks will increase your child’s risk of tooth decay.  In addition, limit their consumption of sugary snacks to meal times.  In between meals, healthy snacks such as fruits, vegetables (non-processed food) is a better choice. 
  • Injury prevention is also another important features to consider: don’t let your child play too close to hard furniture/things that they could fall on.  Electric cords should not be expose for a child to bite on.  If your child start playing contact sports, invest in a mouth guard.  
  • Early habits of good oral hygiene, diet, and regular dental visits will follow them into adulthood. If you would like more information on caring for your child’s teeth, please contact us or schedule an appointment for a consultation.

Try These 5 Strategies for Making Your Child’s Dental Appointment More Peaceful

  1. Start now. Establish a ‘dental home’ for your children early (no later than the age of 1 year old). Introducing your child to the dentist at an early age shows your little one that dental care is a normal part of good health and the dental office is a safe place to go when an emergency arises.
  2. Keep the Pep talk simple. Talk to your little one about an upcoming dental appointment but avoid words that could trigger fear. This could include words like needle, shot, drill, or hurt. You can trust the dental team to explain each step of the dental visit in kid-friendly terms. To prepare your child, focus on more positive words such as healthy, strong, and clean.
  3. Expect some resistance. It is very likely that your little one may wiggle, whine, or cry as the dentist and assistants begin the examination. It is also likely that you’ll want to step in to protect, encourage, or discipline your child. Instead of stepping in, look to the dentist and the staff for guidance. They can handle the situation with patience and professionalism. Plus, your child will see that you trust the team enough to let them provide the proper care.
  4. Choose the perfect reward. Your child might want to sweet treat in exchange for good behavior in the dental office. Unfortunately, this may undermine the advice that the dentist offers your child regarding cavities and sugar. Try choosing a non-food or sugarless reward such as a fun outing in exchange for brave behavior.
  5. Highlight good oral health. Teach your child that the dentist is here to protect healthy teeth and heal unhealthy teeth. The dentist wants to make sure that our smiles are strong and beautiful for our whole lives.
