Serving families in the communities of Easton, Stoughton, and West Bridgewater, Massachusetts
You should bring your child to the dentist before their first birthday. At East End Dental Wellness, we believe that children who get proper dental care and learn the right dental hygiene habits will avoid a lifetime of oral health problems. We are sensitive to every child’s individual needs as well as their fears. Dr. Kim and the rest of the team are experienced in treating children of all ages and we take special measures to make your child feel comfortable.
Starting Them Off Strong
As soon as your child’s teeth start coming in, you should be paying close attention to them. Examine them every two weeks and keep an eye out for lines or discoloration, which may indicate the start of tooth decay. Sugary foods and drinks can easily attack new teeth, so it’s important that your child brushes after eating.
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and limit the amount of toothpaste you use to the size of your child’s fingernail. Children under 2 should not use fluoride toothpaste unless recommended by a doctor or dentist.
