Children’s Dentistry in Concord, NH

May 25, 2015

467777161Is there anything more adorable than your children’s smiling faces? Probably not. But wouldn’t those smiles look that much better if you knew they were healthy and happy, too? At Generations Dental Care in Concord, NH, we want your children to enjoy a lifetime of excellent dental and oral health. Our children’s dentistry helps you help them establish habits that keep smiles strong and bright for years to come.

Our dentists and their team of dental hygienists and assistants may be educated and trained in children’s dentistry, but your children’s first true dentist is you. As soon as you see that first little baby tooth erupt through their gums, it’s time to start a simple hygiene routine. Simply take a soft cloth moistened with warm water and wipe their baby teeth and gums after feeding. As they grow and more teeth appear, you can begin to use a small, soft toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste.

Children’s Dentistry in Our Office

Sometime between your children’s first and third birthdays, the dentists at Generations Dental Care recommend that you begin bringing them to our office for dental checkups every six months. Children’s teeth and mouths are susceptible to the same problems as adults’—decay and cavities, gum disease, teeth grinding and even TMJ disorder and sleep apnea. With regularly scheduled checkups, we can find and treat these conditions. And at each checkup, we’ll offer suggestions on how you and your children can improve their oral hygiene routine at home.

Fluoride and Dental Sealants

Because adequate brushing and flossing can be difficult for children—and because their molars tend to be deeply grooved and pitted—our dentists might recommend a fluoride treatment or dental sealants for an added layer of protection. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens enamel, and sealants go on as a liquid and harden to a clear plastic that shields the chewing surfaces of teeth from bacteria.

Children’s Dentistry is a Priority at Generations Dental Care

November 10, 2014

469174173Your children are your priority and your children’s teeth are our priority at Generations Dental Care in Concord, NH, where children’s dentistry is practiced with gentle care. Just like adults, children should see the dentist twice a year, too. At Generations Dental Care, we recommend that you begin bringing your child to the dentist around the age of three. At that age, they are likely capable of sitting in the dentist’s chair for the brief time we’ll need to conduct an exam. Of course, if there is something that concerns you, then please bring them earlier.

Children’s Dentistry: The Foundation of Good Oral Health

Actually, your child’s dental health begins at home with you. Did you know that you can help your child avoid cavities as they grow? First, if your child uses a pacifier, never “clean” that pacifier in your mouth. Likewise, don’t share eating utensils with your children. When you do, you may be transferring decay-causing bacteria from your mouth directly to theirs.

Around the age of four to six months of age, your baby’s teeth will begin to appear. When they do, cleaning is simple. Take a soft cloth or gauze dipped in warm water and gently wipe their teeth clean. Don’t neglect those baby teeth that allow your child to chew, talk and smile.

When you bring your child to Generations Dental Care, we will count their teeth at their first appointment, and at all of their ensuing visits, we’ll clean their teeth, check for proper development, and examine for signs of tooth decay. We may also recommend dental sealants—a thin plastic coating that is “painted” on molars to seal them against decay causing bacteria—or fluoride treatments to strengthen their teeth’s enamel, the first line of defense against decay.

Helping Children Develop Healthy Smiles with Children’s Dentistry

March 26, 2014

children's dentistryChildren need healthy smiles, just like adults. But where can you take your child for quality children’s dentistry? To Generations Dental Care!

At Generations Dental Care in Concord, our doctors are happy to see patients three years old and older.

Even though your child will lose his or her baby teeth in time, keeping them healthy until then with brushing, flossing, and regular checkups is still important. That’s because baby teeth are like placeholders for adult teeth. As your child grows, his or her baby teeth will help guide adult teeth into their proper position. When baby teeth develop cavities, this can actually have a long-term effect on the adult teeth that will come in later one. Poor oral health can also have an impact on your son or daughters overall health, wellness, and self-confidence.

To help protect your child’s developing smile, we recommend that he or she see our Concord children’s dentistry team twice a year, or about every six months. During your little one’s appointment, we’ll check to see that teeth are developing properly, and we can talk to both you and your little one about correct brushing and flossing.

Dental sealants and fluoride treatments will help us provide even more protection for your child. Dental sealants form a physical barrier between bacteria and the chewing surfaces of teeth. Meanwhile, fluoride treatments attract minerals that are important for building strong, healthy enamel.

Do you need to schedule a children’s dentistry appointment? Call Generations Dental Care today. We serve children and adults from Concord, Penacook, Bow, Canterbury, Chichester, Pembroke, Manchester, Hooksett, Boscawen, Epsom, Hopkinton and Loudon.
