Answers to Your Questions
Are cavities in baby teeth a problem?
Even though baby teeth are temporary, decay and cavities can cause life-long damage. An untreated cavity in a baby tooth can lead to infection and orthodontic issues. If you think your child might have cavities in their baby teeth, schedule a visit as soon as possible.
Should my child get a dental sealant treatment?
Pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of back teeth make them difficult to clean. We often recommend dental sealant treatments to children to help protect these hard-to-reach “groovy” teeth and prevent cavities.
What happens if my child loses a baby tooth prematurely?
If a baby tooth is lost too early — either due to injury or decay — it can cause problems for developing adult teeth. The result is often crowded and crooked teeth, cavities, and difficulty chewing and speaking. If your child lost a baby tooth too soon, let us know and we’ll make a plan to keep their mouth healthy.
How should I take care of my child’s teeth?
During infancy, use a soft cloth to clean their gums. Once their first tooth comes in, contact us to schedule a dental checkup and start brushing their teeth before bed. Additionally, avoid giving your baby juice or pop in their bottle. These drinks have a lot of sugar and are a leading cause of tooth decay in kids.

We believe that keeping your entire family’s teeth clean, healthy, and bacteria-free should be easy.
