It's never too early to start educating your children about the importance of oral health.
It is never too early to start educating your children about the importance of oral health. At Harvard Street Dental we will provide your children with a friendly experience whether your child just needs a cleaning or requires more involved treatment.
- Routine Checkups: Routine checkups include screening for proper structural development of your child’s mouth and face as well as for signs of tooth decay. If a problem is diagnosed we may recommend treatment as well as behavioral modifications you can make at home. We will also educate your child on how to brush and floss.
- Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride treatments will improve proper development of your childs’ tooth enamel and will help prevent tooth decay as you child grows up.
- Fillings: If your child experiences tooth decay, you are not alone, many children develop cavities for preventable reasons such as bottles at night or acid reflux. Our strategy will include diagnosis and treatment as well as helping you develop a plan to improve your child’s oral health on a daily basis at home. Some parents wonder why it is necessary to fill baby teeth since they are only temporary. Fillings are often necessary in order to preserve the integrity of teeth nearby and to maintain spacing required for proper eruption of adult teeth.
