Preventive dental care is a team effort among Dr. Rezaiyan, the patient, and the patient’s parents. The most common concern among young patients and their parents are cavities. Tooth decay is a serious problem that if left untreated can lead to loss of teeth, infection, and pain. Cavity prevention and treatment will be given to each of our young patients at our pediatric dentistry. Our friendly dental hygienists and Dr. Rezaiyan will provide preventive treatments and cleaning, but proper oral maintenance at home paired with a healthy diet is important as well. Be sure to monitor your child’s eating habits. Whatever he or she puts into their body significantly affects their oral health. Foods high in carbohydrates, sugars and starchy can cause bacteria to produce acids that break down teeth.
It is recommended that children see a dentist for regular checkups every six months because your child’s teeth are still developing and it is important to start him or her with a good foundation for good oral health. Our professional pediatric dental hygienists perform gentle yet effective cleanings that involve:
- Plaque removal
- Tartar removal
- Teeth polishing
Your children deserves the best of everything and that includes dental care! Contact our office at (301) 776-5051 to schedule an appointment!
