Dental care for children: Ensure your child’s bright smile

Get expert tips on child dental care for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Visit Wilmot Family Dentistry for top-notch pediatric dental services.

Providing children with appropriate dental care during their early years is an essential responsibility for parents. Every parent wants their children to maintain attractive and healthy smiles. Wilmot Family Dentistry is delighted to offer critical advice on preserving a child’s dental health and ensuring they possess a radiant smile for the years to come.

Start early:

Dental care should start before your child’s first tooth appears. After feeding, gently wipe your baby’s gums with a wet towel to eliminate residue and avoid germ accumulation. Begin cleaning their teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a rice-sized quantity of fluoride toothpaste when their first tooth develops, usually about six months of age.

Regular dental visits:

Dental appointments are critical for your child’s oral health. Make their first dental appointment between six months of their initial tooth eruption or by their first birthday. Regular check-ups with a pediatric dentist will aid in the early detection of possible difficulties and help establish a positive dental experience for your kid.

Ensure your child’s bright smile with

Make brushing fun:

It is critical to instill appropriate brushing habits in children from an early age. Brushing should be entertaining for your child, so use colorful toothbrushes. Brush your teeth as a family, play music, or set a timer to make brushing a game. This will not only make the experience more fun, but it will also build a favorable impression of dental treatment.

Flossing matters:

Flossing should begin when your child’s teeth come into contact, generally around the age of two or three. Use child-friendly flossing equipment to make the practice more accessible and more enjoyable for children. Flossing aids in the removal of plaque and food particles from between the teeth, where toothbrushes cannot reach.

Lead by example:

Children typically copy their parents’ behaviors, so set a good example. Maintain your oral health and attend frequent dental check-ups to demonstrate the significance of dental care.

 Conclusion:

Caring for a child’s teeth is an investment in their health and well-being. You can guarantee your child has a lifetime of bright smiles and good oral health by starting early, keeping regular dentist appointments, supporting healthy behaviors, and leading by example. Wilmot Family Dentistry is here to help your child every step on the path to a healthy, happy smile. Please make an appointment with us now, and let’s work together to lay the groundwork for your child’s oral health.

Not a fan of going to the dentist. Ever. Wilmot Family Dentistry was a great experience. Alex soothed my nerves and made me laugh. Tito is a great hygienist. Dr. Lyman is amazing. He is a no pressure, only what you need type of dentist. Five stars aren’t enough to describe my experience!!

The hygienist from Hawaii does such a great job cleaning teeth pain free. I went to Mexico and 2 crowns placed but she noted they left cement between my teeth that will cause breakdown/infection. She worked so hard to remove it but couldn’t get it all the dentist came in assessed the problem, says he sees this all the time but he can fix it, which is so great because I don’t want to undergo a root canal and another crown. He has placed prior crowns on my teeth and I have never had any issues. He did a great job 👏🏻 I highly recommend this office. I have went there for years. You won’t be disappointed. They will get you in quickly if your having a issue.Thank you Wilmot dental !!!

Dr. Lyman and his team are the best! The pano machine was down last week but they made sure to call me right away when it was fixed and scheduled me in the next week. Front desk is approachable, friendly and super nice. The wait times aren’t really long and that’s perfect! Thought I was only getting my X-rays today but they pulled through with pulling my wisdom teeth and reassured me everything was going to be ok. Recommend this dental for a family like feel. Definitely coming back again!

Kelsie did a great job on my cleaning today. Both her and Dr. Lyman addressed my concerns and answered my questions thoroughly. I've continued to be pleased with this practice.Precious Review 2 years ago: Today, I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle, the new hygienist. What a great addition to this practice. Michelle was gentle and had a lovely chair side manner. She did great, Thank- you Michelle!My previous reviewI was very pleased with my recent experience at Wilmot Family Dentistry. Both Becca and Dr. Lyman were caring and addressed my concerns well. Treatment was pain free. Becca, Alanna and Dr. Lyman were gentle and kind. I recommend this practice.

Doctor Lyman and his staff are incredible. Update: January 2024. Had my 6-month check up and as usual I had a professional lady who was truly a hygienic specialist par excellence. She did a thorough job of cleaning my teeth, and she was as nice as she could be. I can't imagine ever giving less than a five-star review for Wilmot Family Dentistry.
