Your child’s teeth and gums are our number one priority, and we believe that working with parents and caregivers—along with excellent dental care— is crucial to optimal oral health. Everything from good habits at home to regular dental appointments makes the difference.
Children’s dentistry in Fairfax, VA is designed to prevent dental health issues, provide maintenance, and assist with at-home care.
At-Home Oral Care and Nutrition
Your dentist recommends brushing your child’s teeth at least twice per day—and always before bed. You never want your child to sleep through the night with acids, sugars, or bacteria on their teeth or gums. These ingredients erode enamel and can lead to tooth decay. During early dental visits, a member of our team will show you how to brush and care for your child’s teeth.
Eventually, your child reaches the age when he or she can brush and floss independently. Your Fairfax children’s dentist can help with this transition.
If your child is prone to cavities, we may suggest curbing sweets and fruit juices or providing nutritional information that addresses a particular concern.
