This Weeks Oral Health Message to you from Dr. Max:

Hi this is Dr. Max,

I recommend that you schedule a dental visit for your child by their first birthday.  After the first visit it is very important that they go back for a checkup every 6 months, and the reasons are simple.  Changes occur in the child’s mouth much faster than in an adult mouth; they have new teeth forming while the jawbone continues to grow. Also, if a child gets an exam every six months, conditions such as teething irritations, gum disease, and bottle tooth decay can be detected early and resolved right away.  Children with healthy teeth even chew food more easily and learn to speak more clearly. So don’t miss your child’s dental appointments – with your guidance they will have great oral health now and for years to come!

Thank you for visitng our site... we hope to see you in the office soon!
