Childrens Dental CareAs a parent, you play an important role in your child's dental health. Instilling proper oral habits during your child's growth and development years coupled with regular visits to our San Jose office are the best ways to ensure strong, healthy teeth into adulthood.

Basic Tips for Parents from The Dental Dimensions:
 

Establish Good Oral Health Habits Early

Our San Jose office can show your child the proper methods for cleaning those hard to reach areas with a tooth brush and floss. We can also work with you to recommend a specific program of brushing, flossing, and other treatments you can use while teaching your child the appropriate ways to care for his or her teeth.

Nutritional Diet

Limit your child's frequency of snacking, especially starchy, sugary and acidic foods. Instead promote healthy snacks that are rich in nutrients, such as fruits, vegetables and cheese.

Fluoride Intake

Ensure your child gets an adequate amount of fluoride in his or her diet. Fluoride helps build strong teeth and prevent cavities.

Make Tooth Brushing Fun

When parents are excited about caring for their teeth, kids will find tooth brushing to be more enjoyable as well.

Regular Check Ups

As recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, parents should bring their child to the dentist by their first birthday. We encourage regular visits to our kid-friendly office in San Jose to monitor your child's dental development and to educate you and your child about preventative care.

 

At The Dental Dimensions, we understand going to the dentist, especially for children, can be scary, so we make going to the dentist as fun and relaxed as possible. Focusing on education and prevention, our San Jose office offers a fun, gentle and positive atmosphere for your child that promotes good oral hygiene from the toddler years into adolescence and adulthood. We look forward to caring for your child's teeth and gums throughout their various stages of growth and development.
