You only need to floss the teeth you want to keep!

 

Kids should start coming to the dentist around age 1. We make it a good experience and build on each visit so they aren't scared of coming to see the dentist. We answer any questions you have regarding what to do about grinding, how long should they have their pacifier and we discuss a plan for prevention from the beginning.

 

Some baby teeth need to last until children are 12 years old and the minimal cavities they have at a younger age is introducing the adult teeth into a clean environment.

Golden Questions:

Does Flossing really do anything?

~Yes! Flossing removes food and plaque between the teeth where the toothbrush can't reach. Everyone's teeth are spaced differently which makes for more or less food being trapped. Flossing is recommended at least once daily.
