Baby Teeth

Baby Teeth: they’re a big deal!

Start taking care of their oral hygiene from the day they’re born.

Begin with the basics but begin right away—and make an appointment with us when they’re 5!

When Dr. Kapoor starts seeing your child at age 5, they will have most or all of their baby teeth. Even though they will later be replaced by permanent teeth, baby teeth are a crucial part of dental development. This is a great guide to taking care of baby teeth from the beginning.

Why are baby teeth so important?

  • They help children smile, chew, and speak.
  • They are as placeholders in the jaw for the permanent teeth that come later.

Oral Hygiene

With your help, kids will have been brushing and flossing for a while by the time we meet them. Many kids start brushing on their own about age six—around the time they begin to tie their own shoes—but you should keep a watchful eye on their progress and technique.

  • Regular hygiene visits with Dr. Kapoor help kids stay proud of their healthy teeth.
  • Professional cleanings and checkups prevent problems down the road.
  • The Mirage Family Dentistry team enjoys making oral health education fun for kids.
  • Establishing healthy habits early increases the likelihood of making those habits permanent.

Sealants

American Dental Association shows that sealants reduce cavities almost 80% on permanent molars.

That’s a statistic you can smile about!

Dental sealants are a caries prevention method where a solution is painted onto teeth, absorbing itself into the nooks and crannies to prevent bad bacteria from joining the party. Ask Dr. Kapoor if she advises sealants as an option for you and your family.

  • Sealing teeth as soon as they arrive keep them cavity-free from early on.
  • Keeping decay at baby from the beginning saves time, money, and stress in the long run.
  • Sealants are quick, easy, and to date have not presented negative side effects.
  • Sealants last several years and are sometimes covered by insurance.
