Keeping Life-Long Healthy Teeth and Gums
Ensuring that your child and all members of your family brush their teeth at least twice every day and floss daily is the most important thing that you can do to promote healthy teeth at home. Limiting sugar intake and making sure to keep a well-balanced diet will also benefit the oral health of young children and adults. Dr. Moscattini strongly believes that patient education on oral health and hygiene is important for keeping teeth healthy. He will take the time to fully explain any present oral health issues using our intra-oral cameras to let you see the problem for yourself. Our family-friendly dental services include:
• Routine cleanings, deep cleanings, and exams
• Digital x-rays
• Fluoride treatment
• Preventive care education
When Should Kids First See the Dentist?
Your child should have his or her first trip to the dentist when their baby teeth are still in place. Early dental care can catch potential problems before they develop into serious issues, leading to healthier teeth and gums into adulthood. Seeing a dentist early also helps children become accustomed to visits, which can prevent fears from developing later in life. At Moscattini Dental, we see patients as young as 3 years of age.
How Can I Help My Child Overcome a Fear of the Dentist?
Fear of the dentist is extremely common, and not just among children. Kids who have bad experiences at the dentist’s office early on carry this anxiety and fear with them into adulthood, which can lead to avoidance of dental care and the development of serious oral health problems. Choosing the right Duluth family dentist helps to ensure that your child has only positive experiences in the dental chair. Dr. Moscattini encourages parents to bring their child with them to one of their visits prior to the child’s first appointment. This allows kids to see all of the equipment, become familiar with the office, meet the team, and check out our treasure chest full of fun prizes. You can count on our family dental team to make your child feel safe and welcome at every visit.
