Mirage Family Dentistry works to provide your family with the tools to attain strong, healthy teeth for life. As soon as children are five years old, Dr. Kapoor welcomes pediatric patients for treatment. We offer block appointment options to accommodate busy family schedules.
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?
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.
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.
