Hello, new parents! We know that keeping babies and toddlers safe and healthy requires nonstop effort. You secure them tightly in their car seats, lock your medicine cabinet and guard the stairway with a gate. You take them to your pediatrician for immunizations, check-ups and an occasional prescription for an antibiotic.
Rotem Dental Care wants to remind you about another vital component of child wellness: oral health. Sadly, we see too many cases of completely preventable child cavities. You have probably received the following critical advice, but it bears repeating:
- Don’t put babies to bed with a bottle!
- Don’t allow youth to drink juice continually during the day!
- Prevent frequent snacking on sugary foods!
Oral health is intrinsically connected to overall physical health and normal development. If your oral hygiene is not up to par, now is the time to shape up and help your young child develop ideal oral health habits that will serve them well throughout their life.
Rotem Dental Care recommends beginning twice-yearly dental visits around age one or when the first tooth appears. Our friendly staff helps young patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their exams.
Dr. Rotem can advise you on thumb sucking, dental sealants, normal child tooth development, braces, athletic tooth protection, fluoride, or any other pediatric dental issue.
In addition to children’s dentistry, Rotem Dental Care offers the full spectrum of cutting-edge restorative and cosmetic dental procedures such as: sedation dentistry, dental implants, and sleep apnea
