Developing a healthy oral routine with your family and integrating regular checkups will provide you and your loved ones with preventative dental care. Recognizing the importance of maintaining optimal dental health will enable children to lead happier and healthier lives. We understand that our patients lead busy and active lifestyles, and we strive to accommodate schedules. Call Sophisticated Smiles in Johnson City today and schedule yourself and a family member, and we will schedule you accordingly, eliminating extra visits. Dentist Angela R. Cameron understands that every smile is precious.

We invite parents to become our partners in educating their little ones about dental care and dental procedures. Our staff goes the extra mile with gentle cleaning, positive reinforcement and the extra touches that will soothe any family member.

Here are some tips for parents interested in developing and maintaining healthy oral habits for their children.

  • We recommend regular fluoride treatments to strengthen enamel and resist decay. Whenever possible, drink fluoridated water and always use an ADA-accepted fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Dental sealants can provide a further layer of protection against cavities. The plastic coating is painted on the grooved chewing surfaces of the back teeth.
  • Oral care should begin soon after birth. Gums should be cleaned after each feeding. You can begin brushing your child’s teeth as soon as they appear. Always clean your infant’s gums after feeding. Wipe gums with a clean, damp cloth or gauze pad.
  • Parents should brush children’s teeth daily with a soft wet toothbrush and a pea sized amount of fluoride toothpaste.
  • Schedule a dental visit between 6-12 months of age. Supervise your child’s brushing to ensure proper brushing habits.
  • If you give your baby a bottle at a nap or bedtime, fill it with plain water – not milk, formula or juice.
