Pediatric Dentist Dearborn,  MI

Preventative Program

Livonia Pediatric Dentist

Both natural teeth and teeth with restorations survive best in an oral environment that is clean and where the intake of harmful foods is controlled.

Our preventative program at Children’s Dental Care is designed to help prevent new cavities, preserve teeth that have been restored and manage periodontal disease.

At the initial visit oral hygiene instructions are reviewed and are reinforced at subsequent recall visits.

The following are helpful recommendations:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day in a circular motion with a soft bristled toothbrush aimed at the gum.
  • Floss every night in an up-and-down motion while keeping the floss in a U-shape and against the tooth surface.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • Avoid sticky sugary foods.
  • Eat a balanced diet.
  • Use antiseptic and fluoride rinses as directed.
  • Have sealants placed on young permanent teeth.

Our pediatric dentists at Children’s Dental Care always strive to help patients feel comfortable in the dentist’s chair so they can get the pediatric dental services they need. To schedule a dentist appointment for your child, call any of our offices in Canton, Dearborn, and Livonia.
