Prevention: Keeping Your Teeth Healthy
Our preventive measures ensure the continued good health of your gums and teeth. We’ll also take special care of existing dental work and any implants or prostheses you may have. In the process, we develop customized preventive concepts for both children and adults.
Start 'em early
Proper oral hygiene habits are learned early. As soon as your toddler can manage a toothbrush (24-30 months), supervised brushing instructions can create beneficial habits that last a lifetime. Remember, children under 6 should be supervised at all times as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful.
Harold M. Levy DMD, PA recommends a first visit to the dentist somewhere in the third year of a child's life. Establishing regular visits at a young age has proven to improve the health and stability of adult teeth.
