Diem Do, D.D.S. – Easy tips to keep your child’s teeth healthy
Regular care as soon as the first tooth emerges
Nearly half of the kids will experience tooth decay. Regular visits to the dentist will allow your child to get used to dental visits while they are young and reduce their anxiety. As soon as your child has teeth, they should begin visiting the dentist once every six months. Dr. Do will monitor the health of your child’s teeth and keep an eye out on issues with alignment and spacing so they can be treated promptly.
It is important to encourage independence in your child and allow them to take part in caring for their teeth, but younger children still need a parent to help make sure they are brushing all their teeth properly and disrupting plaque formation daily. Dr. Do will educate you and your child on the most effective methods, and help you understand the role nutrition plays in caring for teeth.
Individualized treatment for patients of all ages
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry. Certain factors, like genetics and underlying health conditions, will make you more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. Our goal is to design a treatment plan that will prevent problems before they begin.
We have invested in high-tech diagnostic tools, such as intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays, so we can identify problem areas and treat issues with the highest level of care possible. This will help children and adults have a comfortable experience each visit, as well as allow Dr. Do to craft treatment plans that will preserve your smile for years to come. Dental visits are an investment in your child’s future health, and regular cleanings will prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and infections that can travel throughout your body.
