We want you to have a beautiful smile and healthy teeth! We have put some information together to make sure you are taking the best preventive care for your teeth.
Preventative Care: See Dr Selph at least every 6 months
If your teeth are in good condition, you should come to see us for a checkup at least twice a year. If your teeth are predisposed to problems, you should be on the safe side and make an appointment for preventative care regularly.
Our tip: Come in for a consultation and make the next appointment after each visit.
Start 'em early
Proper oral hygiene habits are learned early. As soon as your toddler can manage a toothbrush (24-30 months), supervised brushing instructions can create beneficial habits that last a lifetime. Remember, children under 6 should be supervised at all times as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful.
Dr Selph recommends a first dentist visit somewhere between 2 and 3 years old. Establishing regular visits at a young age has proven to improve the health and stability of adult teeth.
