Celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month with a Smile!

February 21, 2023

At the office of Brockport Smiles, our goal is to help every smile reach its full potential. Our state-of-the-art practice welcomes patients of all ages, and we offer comprehensive care to meet all your family’s dental needs. This month is National Children’s Dental Health Month and an excellent opportunity to make sure your child’s smile is getting the attention and care it needs. 

Kids go through so many developmental stages, and so do their teeth. 

Remember, once your child’s baby front incisors start to appear at around six months, it is time to start to think about their dental health. In fact, there are a multitude of dental considerations in a baby and growing child. You may be wondering what to do about teething, how to recognize and deal with harmful oral habits, how to establish good oral hygiene practices, the best way to prevent dental decay, what to do if your child injures their teeth, or if their dental and jaw development is progressing normally. 

Of course, the best way to answer these questions and ensure your child has a healthy smile is to start visiting our office at an early age and continue bringing your child in regularly for routine dental care.

Healthy smiles begin with dental prevention and routine care.

With dental decay frequently cited as the chief source of dental issues among children, we emphasize the importance of preventive care. At every checkup visit, we perform a comprehensive exam to assess your little one's developing smile. You and your child will also receive abundant guidance on how to brush and floss, along with tips on diet and other aspects of smile care. 

As we monitor the health and development of your child’s smile, we may recommend other measures to support their growing smiles.  As an added level of protection against tooth decay, we often suggest periodic fluoride treatments and the application of dental sealants. If indicated, we’ll also discuss the need for orthodontic treatment.  

Dental cleanings support healthy smiles at every age!

Of course, taking care of your smile is important at every age. Among the best ways to keep your family's smiles healthy and bright is with good oral hygiene at home, dental checkups, and professional dental cleanings from our office. 

By making dental checkups and professional cleanings at the office of Brockport Smiles a part of your family's healthcare routines, we can help every family member enjoy the benefits of good oral health and beautiful smiles.
