Pediatric Dental Care

When it comes to kids of all ages, Clifton Pediatric Dental Care understands the importance of developing healthy habits in order to avoid the dreaded cavity or other dental problems that can be encountered. With great oral care there is no reason your child should end up with dental problems; however, because permanent teeth are more prone to getting cavities, regardless of how well you brush or floss, your child needs to make sure that he or she continues the oral care habits developed at a young age well into the future. When it comes to kids' dentistry in Passaic County, NJ, we have a wealth of information and tips. Here are a few:

Dental care for preschoolers:
Parents should brush preschoolers' teeth after breakfast and before bedtime. By the age of two, your child is ready to start flossing. When visiting the dentist, make it a positive experience and instill the notion that this is a fun and happy trip!

Dental care for school-age children:
Continue supervising brushing until the age of 7 or 8. Supervise your child's flossing until they are 10 years old. Visit the dentist every six months. Get sealants put on your child's teeth. The majority of cavities in kids under 12 are on the surfaces of back teeth. By having sealants placed on your child's teeth, the risk of future dental problems is greatly minimized. Also try to limit snacks to healthy fruits and vegetables, rather than sugary options.

Dental care for teenagers:
Tooth decay and gum disease affects 60 percent of teens. Teenagers typically eat nine times a day, and they tend to favor a diet full of sugars and starches. Remain watchful of their eating habits. Make sure your teenager is not putting off brushing and flossing.

We also make it a point to provide information on proper teeth care so that our patients walk away with the knowledge of how to keep their teeth beautiful and healthy.
