At Smile Xone Dental Hospital, our staff are specially trained to work with parents and their kids—from infancy through their teens.
Did you know that all children should begin seeing a dentist by one year of age ? Daily cleaning of teeth should begin as soon as the first baby tooth erupts. At our hospital we focus on prevention and education as well as providing quality dental care when needed. Our goal is to provide parents with the information they need to create a lifetime of healthy smiles for their children!
Whether you’re nursing or bottle feeding, you should begin incorporating some type of dental hygiene regimen as soon as possible. Before any teeth erupt, wipe down the gums with gauze or a soft, wet washcloth. Once teeth begin to come in, keep them clean. Using the right set of tools is essential for this daily ritual. For example, it is important to purchase a toothbrush designed specifically for babies, which will have a much smaller head, for their tiny mouths.
Our dentist will keep your child’s teeth healthy by removing plaque build-up and food debris that may be stuck in his teeth. This is an important part of dental care because it prevents bacteria from continuing to grow, which may eventually lead to other dental diseases (eg. tooth decay or inflammation of the gum tissue).
