Children's Dentistry Portland, OR
Your child's first dental visit will consist of a thorough review of your child's dental and health information and a comprehensive dental examination along with a discussion on proper diet, nutrition and good oral hygiene habits.
A baby's natural reflex is to suck. Sucking a thumb or finger can help young children learn about their surroundings, feel secure, relax and fall asleep. But if your child's baby teeth appear to be affected by thumb sucking, consult your dentist.
Did you know that you can begin motivating children toward good oral health practices as young as 2-5 years of age? Encouraging good nutrition, routine dental care and regular dental visits will help your child adopt good oral health habits early and naturally.
