What is a Well Baby Check-Up?

Mother with babyA Well Baby Check-Up is usually recommended at twelve months of age.

As you sit next to your young child holding hands, we will check his/her teeth for proper eruption and any early tendencies toward decay. We will also examine the health of the gums and the development of jaw structures.

Any early-stage tooth decay can be easily and quickly treated, and long, extensive appointments can be avoided. Baby Bottle Caries are a major disappointment for all concerned and are challenging and expensive to restore. Visiting the dentist early insures your baby’s health.

Our expert team will discuss age-appropriate brushing techniques and healthy feeding methods with you. This will help you prevent problems before they start. We’ll also cover the benefits and the proper use of fluoride. Finally, we’ll address finger sucking and pacifier habits, and any other questions you may have.

Sealants

The chewing surfaces of back teeth are easily susceptible to cavities in children. Made of clear or shaded plastic, sealants protect these grooved and pitted surfaces of the molars and help to keep them cavity-free.

How do sealants work?

Even if your child brushes and flosses carefully, it is difficult— sometimes impossible— to clean the tiny grooves and pits on certain teeth. Food and bacteria build up in these depressions, placing your child’s teeth in danger of decay. Sealants help "seal out" food and plaque, thus reducing the risk of decay.

How long do sealants last?

Research shows that sealants can last for many years. As a result, your child will be protected throughout the most cavity-prone years. If your child has good oral hygiene and avoids biting hard objects, sealants will last longer. Your pediatric dentist can easily replace or repair lost or damaged sealants.
