Children’s Dentistry in

Dr. Zabek-Clark talking to patientProper dental hygiene is an essential part of a daily routine, and so it is vital that parents begin to establish good dental habits early in their child’s life.

This starts with the cleaning of a baby’s mouth even before his or her teeth erupt by gently wiping away any buildup from the gums with a special finger brush and semi-warm water. As the baby teeth begin to ease through the gums a soft brush and non-fluoride toothpaste will keep bacteria at bay and will easily reach all sides of the generally widely spaced teeth.


Further protection can be found in the form of a dental sealant. When your child reaches a point where there is no risk of swallowing the toothpaste you can begin to use a paste with fluoride. As your child’s teeth start to fill out and the gaps between them close, use floss to remove any plaque from between his or her teeth. In this way, you can begin to establish a healthy pattern of dental care and a positive attitude toward dentistry in general.
