Caring for Your Child’s Oral Health as They Grow Up
Your child’s oral health plays a large role in their quality of life. From the moment they’re born, you’re in charge of managing their oral care needs until they’re old enough to take on the responsibility themselves.
New parents can help keep their baby’s mouth clean by washing their gums with a damp, clean washcloth until their first tooth grows. After that, you may use a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste to clean their new teeth.
Our team can help you preserve your child’s oral health when you come in for regular appointments. We recommend booking your child’s first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of growing their first tooth.
Common Oral Health Concerns in Children
Proper oral health care means properly managing bacteria and sugar buildup in your child’s mouth.
Sugars lead to common oral health issues like tooth decay and gum disease, which, in turn, could lead to more severe problems like tooth loss if not managed properly. Our team looks for these issues during your child’s dental exam and cleaning to address them as soon as possible.
If we notice any further problems, we’ll be happy to provide strategies that suit your child’s needs and lifestyle.
Tooth decay, also known as a cavity, is a common oral health problem that develops when bacteria from plaque wears down the enamel of your child’s teeth. Eventually, a cavity can progress through their tooth’s dentin and into their tooth pulp, potentially leading to an infection.
It’s not uncommon for teeth to grow a little crooked or misaligned, but it could lead to certain oral health problems if they’re not addressed.
We’re proud to offer several different orthodontic options to help align your child’s teeth, which can help make it easier for them to keep their teeth clean as well as enjoy a straighter smile.

OUR GOOGLE REVIEWS
I had an accident that resulted in a cracked tooth and a lot of pain. They saw me the same day I called and came in the next day, on a closed day on a long weekend, to fix it! Great staff ( thank you Cindy and Sherry) and Dr Hakkaarrt was very thorough in her assessment and repair of my injury. She is the best at giving freezing needles that I ever experienced. I would give 6 stars if I could. Thank you to you all for your help.
Dr. Krystal is excellent! I highly recommend her and her team to everyone who is looking to keep their teeth where they should be.
I desperately needed to get out of pain. There are no words to describe how WONDERFUL my experience with Dr. Krystal and her staff! Greeted with respect, dignity and a deep desire to provide the best possible care for her patients and their many, diverse needs. Having neglected myself and my teeth comes the my own challenges and going to the dentist is quite a daunting challenge to say the least. Patience, persistence, and perseverance is what it takes with each individual and Dr. Krystal and her staff come through with flying colors! Alway’s warm and welcoming and not satisfied until their patient is happy with whatever work may have been needed! My gratitude for this dentist and her staff goes beyond the stars! There is no other dentist I would go to or recommend! When you find the best, you keep it!
