Tooth decay often begins at an early age, making young children particularly susceptible. Nearly half of children between the ages of 2-11 have experienced tooth decay while 32% of kids between the ages of 9-11 develop cavities in their permanent teeth. Major contributing factors to this public health problem include baby formula with added sugar and heavily-sugared fruit juices. Even breast milk can cause cavities in baby teeth because of the natural sugars present.

Care for baby teeth should begin as soon as the first tooth appears. We recommend that you bring your child in for an exam no later than his or her first birthday. Regular six-month checkups will put kids on a schedule like most adults, establishing a routine that will hopefully last a lifetime.

   

The following early steps can help guard your child against tooth decay, even before their first dental visit:

  • Your baby's teeth should always be rinsed with water or wiped with a damp cloth after feeding, especially before they fall asleep. Milk or formula residue left in the mouth can encourage decay even in the youngest patients.
  • Try to wean your child off bottle feeding by their first birthday. This helps avoid decay and reduces the chance of developing jaw problems from excessive sucking.
  • Begin brushing as soon as your child’s first tooth appears. Even if it’s barely poking through the gum, a tooth can develop decay if not cleaned properly. Start by brushing with a soft bristled brush and water. Ask Dr. Manju R. Kejriwal or your child’s hygienist when it's ok to begin using a small amount of toothpaste.
  • Help your child brush and remember that kids don’t have the dexterity to clean their teeth on their own until after they can tie their shoes.
  • Don't give bottles filled with sugary drinks or milk before bedtime.
  • If you do choose to offer sugary beverages, have your child use a straw, so the teeth have less contact with the liquid.
  • Try to limit the overall sugary foods your child eats and drinks.

As far as Dentists and Doctors Go- I'm not a big fan, but I have to admit when I chose Mk Dentistry for my situation it was one of the best decisions I've ever made I visited MK and two other dental Facilities and after discussing my situation (I had lost about half my teeth) with all three, I chose MK Dental Excellence. I needed extraction, Fillings, A crown, Bone grafts and Implants. Dr. Kejriwal, Tina and Dawn and the entire staff are all proffessionals that I completely trust. Now I can eat without pain and discomfort and people tell me I don't look half bad, Thanks for the Great Job, MK

I have been a patient for over 2 years after trying to find a local dentist who takes my insurance. I found them through 1-800-Dentist. The people working there are professional yet kind and truly concerned about the care given me. They are the finest group of professionals it has been my pleasure to be their client., The doctor is most pleasant and takes her time with me and takes personal care of my dental issues and she does not hurt you, which is also important. The procedure they did for me on my gums was done with patience and professionalism and they "truly care" about this patient. It is truly the best dental experience I have had and I will continue to let them take care of me! The people working there that I have had the pleasure of being their patient are the "BEST".
