Healthy baby teeth play a crucial role in the proper growth and development of your child’s mouth. You can assist your child in moving towards a lifetime of optimal oral health by appropriate supervision of home-care as they grow and mature. Be sure to check your children’s teeth regularly and best of all – take good care of your own teeth. Children are enthusiastic advocates of oral health care when their parents set a good example. Periodic dental examinations, sealants, fluoride supplements, and topical applications of fluoride all play important roles in the prevention and early detection of childhood tooth decay.
Dental visits contribute to positive attitudes and lay the foundation for a lifetime of optimal oral health. Early childhood tooth decay can be prevented by effective home care and regular dental office visits starting at age one. We encourage you to make arrangements with our office to bring your children in for a Happy Visit to meet Dr. Chester and our staff.
