Children’s Dentistry

Ensuring a Lifetime of Healthy Teeth 

As with most things in life, a strong foundation starts in childhood. That’s certainly true with good dental habits. At Jeffrey T Bonk DDS , we partner with parents to help give your children a solid foundation of good dental habits.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child should have their first dental visit within six months after the appearance of his or her first tooth, or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. Early oral examination not only assists in the detection of initial stages of tooth decay but starts to put your child at ease when visiting the dentist.

During each visit, we gently clean your child’s teeth and remove any plaque or tartar. We’ll also carefully examine their mouth and teeth for any potential issues. Establishing the routine of bi-annual dental exams – along with you guiding your children through a daily dental routine of brushing and flossing – sets the stage for your child’s long-term dental health.

Tooth decay has become the common chronic childhood illness in the U.S. We’ll teach you and your child how to properly brush and floss properly as they grow. During the exam, we’ll discuss dental hygiene habits and healthy food choices.

The Jeffrey T Bonk DDS  team will also be looking ahead, working to ensure long-term dental health. We may recommend treating your child’s teeth with fluoride. This mineral can strengthen tooth enamel, making teeth more resistant to decay. Fluoride may be applied in the office or used in certain toothpastes and mouth rinses. In other cases, we may recommend the use of dental sealants. Sealants are a protective coating applied to the chewing surface of molars. Recent studies have found that sealants can be highly effective in preventing tooth decay.

Guide your child to a lifetime of health teeth and gums and request a dental exam and cleaning for your child today.
