Dental Care for my Babies

Dental care begins before your baby's teeth have even erupted. Parents have on occasion been surprised to see baby teeth come in already decayed. Though it's not a common problem, it is something that can be easily avoided with proper education. Lindsey A. Robinson, DDS can give you the tools you need to protect your baby's teeth before the teeth have even come in. For our youngest of patients, we will want to establish a few simple steps.
•  Habit: Establishing a daily habit of cleaning your child's teeth, either with a washcloth or an infant toothbrush, will help them grow used to having their teeth cleaned and help you start a routine of daily considering cleaning their teeth.
•  Comfort: We want your child to be comfortable with coming to the dentist office, sitting in the chair, and visiting with Lindsey A. Robinson, DDS. Though your child may not require a dental cleaning, we will want to develop a working relationship with your child and review tips, techniques, and guidance for you.
•  No excessive sugar: Your young children have no need for excessive sugar. Parents often provide foods and drinks that are just unnecessary for their children. Eliminating juice is a simple step.

How old should my child be before going to the dentist?

At Lindsey A. Robinson DDS Pediatric and Endodontic Dentistry, we know it’s important to develop a good working relationship with your child. We never want them to feel afraid of our tools, equipment, or staff. Their comfort is very important and studies show that being comfortable with your dentist in childhood promotes lifelong willingness to regularly see a dentist, meaning healthier teeth throughout their life. Coming young and with regular frequency is a great way to establish relationships and feel comfortable in a dentist chair. Lindsey A. Robinson, DDS wants to take the time to approach your child gently, show them the dental tools, and talk with the parent, and child, on the importance of proper oral hygiene. By bringing your child to their first dental visit between the ages of 2 and 3, it can help us foster that relationship.

Oral Care Tips for your Young Children

There are tips that parents can do that will assist your child in creating good oral health habits. Some of these tips include:
•  Avoid sugary food items: At some point apple juice became a regular child drink, we ask that you swap apple juice consumption with water. Do not put your babies or young children to bed with a sippy cup or bottle of juice. The sugar in juice promotes cavities, possibly even in teeth that do not erupt.
•  Clean their gums or teeth: Either wipe their gums or lightly brush your child's teeth every day. Parents should be in control of brushing until your child is at least 8 years old.
•  Floss: By the time your child has a mouthful of teeth, they should begin flossing. Flossing is often difficult for children, flossing sticks have been found to be easier, though be aware of possible choking if used improperly. Flossing sticks while your child watches tv is a great way to get them to floss.
•  Rinse: Mouth rinses aid in clearing away bacteria from your child's mouth. This will need to be given to them with your presence and caution. There are child mouthwashes available that will not cause the same feeling of burning and some bottles are even designed to control the portion given.
