A Dentist in Heathrow for the Whole Family

If you need a dentist in Heathrow that can take care of the whole family, we’re here to help! Parents often wonder when their child’s first dental appointment should be. You might be surprised to learn that it’s when the very first tooth appears. 

The latest your child should come in to see us is by their first birthday. At home oral hygiene is also important for infants. Healthy gums are crucial for overall oral health. It is recommended to clean your infant’s gums with a soft cloth in between feedings, whether you are bottle or breastfeeding. 

As soon as teeth appear it is important to start a regular brushing routine using an infant toothbrush. Scheduling regular cleanings at your dentist in Heathrow will help prevent dental diseases so your child stays healthy. 

When children become familiar with the experience of seeing a dentist or oral hygienist it reduces anxiety and the potential for negative feelings down the road. It also instills good habits that they can take with them for years to come.

We’ll provide you with information about dietary habits for optimal dental health and give you advice on the best ways to floss and brush. 

Your child’s first set of teeth aren’t permanent, however, proper dental care is still critically important.  

Poor oral health can lead to gingivitis and periodontitis, also known as gum disease. These degenerative diseases are preventable and treatable. Proper flossing and brushing will ensure good dental hygiene. And regular visits to your dentist means you will get prompt diagnosis and treatment.

Dental sealants are a great way to protect children’s teeth from decay and cavities. It’s a simple procedure that involves coating the molars with an adhesive followed by a sealant. They protect the molars from bacteria and food which prevents decay. 

Cavities can appear despite your best hygienic efforts. One way to prevent cavities is by using  fluoride toothpaste. 

Fillings may even be necessary without the presence of cavities. Nail biting or teeth grinding can wear the teeth down and may require filling. Other times cracked or broken teeth can be repaired with fillings. 

Hygiene is not the only thing required to protect your child’s teeth. If your children are involved in sports or recreational activities that could involve collisions then you need a custom mouthguard made by your dentist in Heathrow.

It’s common for people to pick up a store bought mouthguard, however,  it’s not the safest choice. Those guards may constrict airways due to a poor fit, and do not provide adequate protection. Custom mouthguards are safe and comfortable. They will also protect your teeth, tongue, and lips from damage. 

When you come in for a visit we will provide you with everything you need to know so you can make the best choices for your family’s dental needs 

We know some people find it stressful to see the dentist, and bringing the kids in may increase that stress; don’t worry, we provide a comfortable environment and expert consultation. 

Please call us with any questions or to schedule an appointment at (407) 413-9000

My girlfriend told me to go to Dentist of Lake Mary. She’d had a great experience, and so did I. I wasn’t convinced when I first went, but the staff and services were great. The dentist didn’t do anything without telling me exactly what was going to happen. Each new step was explained in detail. I don’t like dental visits but this was definitely my best experience yet. I won’t go anywhere else.

A friend recommended Dentist of Lake Mary. That’s why I went. I wasn’t expecting anything different from any of the other dentists I have gone to. But was I pleasantly surprised. I’ve already had a really good experience during my first couple of my visits there. From the front desk to the doctors and staff, everyone is beyond friendly and patient. I’m sticking with Dentist of Lake Mary.

Every member of the staff at Dentist of Lake Mary was informative, friendly and helpful. Even though it was my first visit, the dentist went out of the way to make sure I knew what was going to happen and was there anything else the staff could do to make me more comfortable. The dentist explained every step in detail. Since I was having a root canal, I was very nervous, but everyone at Dentist of Lake Mary made sure I was OK. Just a great atmosphere and vibe in the office, and that’s a first for me at a dentist’s office.
