Most Common Question Parents Have:
“Help! My child’s adult teeth are coming in behind baby teeth – what should I do?”
Answer: This is a VERY common occurrence with children, usually the result of a lower, primary (baby) tooth not falling out when the permanent tooth is coming in. In most cases if the child starts wiggling the baby tooth, it will usually fall out on its own within two months. If it doesn’t then come in for a simple checup and we can guide you if it needs to be taken out by us or we can wait a bit longer. The permanent tooth should then slide into its proper place.
First Visit by Your Child’s 1st Birthday
Answer: Here’s an interesting fact: More than one in four children in the world have cavities by the time they are 4 years old – sometimes even before age of 2! Give your child the greatest gift on his or her 1st birthday – the gift of healthy teeth!
Tooth decay can begin as soon as teeth emerge in an infant’s mouth. It can progress rapidly, causing pain and even harm to the permanent teeth that are still growing under the gums. If left untreated, tooth decay can destroy the teeth of an infant or young child and can affect a child’s general overall health.
They need fillings, stainless steel crowns, pulp or root infection treatments and preventive orthodontics. We routinely do fluoride therapy for preventing cavities, apply sealants, and advise regular check-ups.

We believe that with good oral home care, routine dental visits, and preventive procedures, your children can grow up cavity-free.
