We take a preventive approach to dental treatment at GoKids Pediatrics Dentistry. Beginning from a child’s first dental appointment, our mission is to lay the groundwork for patients to create healthy smiles that last a lifetime. We work to avoid the onset, progression, and recurrence of common dental conditions by routine dental cleanings, examination, X-Ray, and much more.
Children’s oral care starts long before they have teeth. Parents are encouraged to softly clean their baby’s gums twice a day with a wet cloth or gauze. This replaces any residue that has accumulated and aids in the proper emergence of baby teeth. We also advise parents to restrict their child’s consumption of juice and other sugary foods and to never put a baby to sleep with a bottle.
It is important to be gentle when disclosing your baby to dental hygiene. Use a soft-bristled baby toothbrush along with water, to clean the area. Toothpaste is not recommended for children under the age of 2. When you’re finished, start with a paste designed especially for toddlers and use only a rice-sized portion.
Cleanings done by a hygienist or dental assistant are important for your child’s dental health. Brushing and flossing your teeth daily is important for maintaining healthy teeth.
