KJJ is family practice. This means that we are able to fulfill the needs of all members of your family including the young children. Getting off to a good start will shape your child’s oral health and dental attitudes for life.
Nutrition counseling can promote a reduction in cavities by changing dietary habits. Young patients don’t realize that foods such as crackers and granola bars, which may seem to be healthy food choices, actually stick to the teeth. Soft drinks and acidic beverages foster bacteria, as does putting the baby to sleep with a bottle of milk.
Our dentist will help you evaluate when is the appropriate time for your child to see an orthodontist. The many factors to consider when planning orthodontic treatment include the stage of development of the teeth, the proportion of the jaws to each other and to the rest of the face, the position of the teeth within the jaws, the degree of crowding, and the maturity and level of cooperation of the patient.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing gas) available
Laughing gas inhalation sedation is highly effective in the management of mild to moderate levels of dental anxiety. Laughing gas usually eliminates or minimizes gagging in most patients.
