At Shoals Smile by Design, we offer pediatric dental services to help children maintain healthy teeth and gums. Pediatric dentistry is concerned with the prevention of disease, decay, and pain. Our preventive services are based around helping your child develop the hygiene habits he or she needs to maintain good oral health. Dr. Jamine Rogers will perform thorough and careful exams for your child, and we will also take the time to teach him or her how to create and execute proper habits at home. These habits include:
Brushing at least twice a day to remove plaque formed from meals eaten throughout the day.
- Make sure to brush the outer and inner surfaces of each tooth.
- Use the tip of the brush to clean the inside of your front teeth.
- Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.
Flossing at least once a day to clean spaces between your teeth and disrupt plaque colonies from building up.
- This helps avoid damage to the gums, teeth, and bone.
Rinsing your mouth with water after brushing and after meals if you are unable to brush.
Should decay, oral disease, or structural problems be diagnosed, your child will be treated with care in this professional environment.
