DeRose Children's Dental
As a mother, I relate to children in a nurturing way, and they sense it. Children need healthy teeth for chewing, speaking clearly and appearance. We will show you how to brush your child’s teeth properly and begin to teach them the basics of dental health.
Our approach is child-centered and takes into consideration each child’s unique personality. I explain what I will be doing in terms that they can understand.
We provide emergency care for our patients. If your child has experienced a dental trauma please call our office immediately for further information (262) 637-6453.
Your baby’s first dental exam should be at approximately one year of age. At this time, I will examine the shape of your baby’s jaw and oral tissue. We will discuss nutrition and oral habits like thumb-sucking and pacifier use.
If your child has “crooked teeth,” their self-esteem often suffers. Straightening a teen's teeth will make them feel better about themselves. Cavities can pop up due to increased soda and sugar consumption, during the pre-teen and teenage years making continued dental care very important.
What should I do if my child's baby tooth is knocked out?
Call our office immediately at (262) 637-6453. The baby tooth should not be replanted because of the potential for subsequent damage to the developing permanent teeth.
What should I do if my child's permanent tooth is knocked out?
Find the tooth and rinse it gently in cool water. Do not scrub or clean it with soap -- use only water. If possible, replace the tooth in the socket immediately and hold it there with clean gauze or a wash cloth. If you can't put the tooth back in the socket, place the tooth in a clean container with cold milk, saliva or water. Call our office immediately at (262) 637-6453. The faster you act, the better your chances of saving the tooth.
