Why A Pediatric Dentist?
Has your child ever begged you not to leave the dentist? Impossible you say? Not at our office. It could be our gentle touch and special way with kids. Our doctors and staff love children and are specially trained to put them at ease. At Rocky Mountain Pediatric Dentistry, PC, we teach your children the proper way to take care of their teeth and just as important, they learn that going to the dentist can be fun.
Children's hands and mouths are different than adults. They need to use toothbrushes designed for children. Both adults and children should use brushes with soft, rounded bristles for gentle cleaning. Change to a new brush about every three months. If your child prefers an electric toothbrush they can start using this at any time.
As soon as your child's first tooth comes into their mouth you should start brushing gently twice a day, using a child's toothbrush with a small, rice-sized dab of toothpaste. By age two or three begin to teach your child to brush. You will still need to brush where they miss. At this age a small, pea-sized dab of toothpaste should be used. By using this amount of toothpaste during brushing it is safe to use fluoridated toothpastes. Make sure to keep the toothpaste out of reach of your children as too much fluoridated toothpaste is toxic.
