Children's dentist 06457
In order to promote and maintain optimal oral health for your child's teeth and gums, bring him or her in for a dental exam and cleaning every six months. At the office of Laurence K. Levy, DMD, it is our goal to prevent tooth decay and gum disease and the consequences of them for your child.
Is this going to be her or his first visit here? If so, we'll include some time for your child to become acquainted with our office and our staff, especially our children's dentist 06457
. The dental exam itself includes a physical checkup and visual inspection of his or her teeth and gums. If any teeth are loose, or there are any signs of gum disease, they'll be detected. It takes x-rays, however, to find early signs of tooth decay. Remember that a cavity diagnosed and filled today will help your child to avoid tomorrow's toothache, infection, or early loss of a baby tooth. A teeth cleaning at our children's dentist 06457 is responsible for removing tartar buildup and residual plaque that was not addressed with your child's daily oral hygiene routine. And it's very important, because plaque and tartar are the reasons behind tooth decay and gum disease. Each six month visit is like hitting the reset button on optimal dental well-being for her or him. And teeth cleanings also reverse the signs of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, which keeps your child's gums in an optimal state. Believe it or not, gum disease affects kids just as much as it does adults.
At-home oral hygiene and good nutrition are vital, but you can't do it all on your own. Book an appointment right now for your child to come in and get an examination and cleaning from our children's dentist 06457
