Help Your Child Get the Most Out of Their Smile

Your baby’s teeth started developing even before they were born! That’s one reason why it’s so important to begin their dental care as soon as their teeth come through. Even though your child will ultimately lose their baby teeth, keeping these teeth healthy will help protect their gums and make sure their adult teeth develop normally.We invite you to make us your “dental home” for your child. Doing so will help set them up for dental success throughout their life.

When your little one comes in for their first dental visit:

  • Dr. Alli will take time to get to know you and your child better. She’ll ask a few questions about their oral health, such as when their first tooth erupted and their oral care routine. These questions will help her provide more specialized dental care for your baby.
  • Dr. Alli will answer any questions you have about your child’s oral health, including concerns about teething, nursing, tongue-tie, and baby bottle tooth decay. As a children’s dentist, she is especially suited to addressing these issues.
  • Dr. Alli will count your baby’s teeth and look for any signs of problems. She will check for developmental issues or tooth decay that could cause problems for your child.
  • Your baby’s gums will be inspected. Even though gum disease is rare in young children, inflammation and irritation can still pose problems.
  • Dr. Alli and our team will advise you on any problems we find with your child’s smile. We will discuss their oral health and make recommendations for keeping their teeth and gums healthy.

Common Questions About Dentistry for Infants

How do I clean my baby’s teeth?

Even before your baby’s first tooth arrives, you can clean the inside of their mouth by using a warm, damp washcloth to wipe off their gums after a feeding. After their teeth start to become visible, clean their teeth twice a day using a small soft-bristle toothbrush with a grain-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste on the bristles. Eventually, you can use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste.

How often should my baby see the dentist?

Just like their grown up counterparts, we recommend babies visit the dentist every six months for a checkup. During every appointment, we will examine their mouth, count their growing teeth, and look for signs of any gum infections. We’ll also answer any questions or concerns you have about your baby’s oral health.

Are X-rays safe for babies?

Yes, X-rays are safe for babies, and children of all ages. The digital X-rays we use have minimal radiation exposure, and we also give patients protective gear to wear that reduces the little exposure they do experience. With that in mind, we only perform X-rays when absolutely necessary to further improve or preserve your child’s oral health.

Are pacifiers bad for teeth?

They can be. They can affect the alignment of your child’s teeth and may even cause changes in the roof of the mouth. Dental problems related to pacifier use are more common in children older than age 2, those who vigorously suck their pacifier, and those who use one all of the time. If you’re concerned about your child’s pacifier use, let us know. We can offer suggestions to help wean them off a pacifier.
