February is National Children’s Dental Health Month: Bring the Kids to Dr. Carollo for Pediatric Dentistry

February 15, 2015

467777161Valentines and presidents only get one day in February. But children get the whole month! The American Dental Association has designated February for National Children’s Dental Health Month. Establishing good hygiene habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits help children set a solid foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. With this in mind, Dr. John A. Carollo would like to welcome your children and teenagers to his practice for outstanding pediatric dentistry in Florham Park, NJ.

Although Dr. Carollo would like to begin seeing your children by the time they are three years old, pediatric dentistry actually begins much earlier, and it begins with you. When you see that first pearly white erupt through your baby’s gum, it’s time to begin cleaning. Just take a soft cloth moistened with warm water and wipe your child’s baby teeth and gums after feeding. As they grow and their smiles fill out, you can begin brushing with a small, soft toothbrush and a dab of toothpaste.

Visiting Dr. Carollo for Pediatric Dentistry

When you bring your child to Dr. Carollo for a checkup, you’ll notice that we’ve gone the extra mile to make sure they’re comfortable in our office—we have books, televisions and video games. As we do with adult patients, we’ll clean your children’s teeth, evaluate the health of their gums (because children are not immune to gum disease), and examine their teeth for early signs of decay.

In addition to these standard checkup services, we may also recommend a fluoride treatment to strengthen your children’s tooth enamel and dental sealants, which are applied to molars for an added layer of protection against decay-causing bacteria.
