Children’s Dentistry


Start your infant’s home care routine as soon as you come home from the hospital by wiping his or her gums with a wet gauze pad. Once teeth have erupted, brush his or her teeth at least twice a day with a soft toothbrush, and floss daily.

Dental care for children should begin as soon as their first tooth appears. Your dentist at Belfield Dental recommends children have their first dental visit before the age of one, and this is especially important for special needs children. 

Belfield Dental Care:

Your dentist at Belfield Dental will evaluate your child’s dental development to put a prevention plan in place, which could avoid many potential dental problems entirely. This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify aberrant habits, and treat as needed and as simply as possible.

Additionally, parents are given a program of preventive home care (brushing, flossing and fluorides), a risk assessment, information on finger, thumb, and pacifier habits, and may include advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counseling , and information on growth and development.
