When to take your child to the dentist...

As parents, we want to provide our children with the best medical care available in order to keep them safe and healthy. Our children's oral health should not be the exception! Having good oral health prevents us from many other health complications that can be derived from oral problems. In order to achieve this, we need to create good oral habits.

Starting dental care early and teaching our children how to brush and floss correctly can really help create the habit of a clean smile. It is recommended to take each child to a first dental visit six months after the eruption of a first tooth, but if you see a discoloration or any possible complication, you should schedule the appointment sooner.

At Cyberdent, we will make sure your child's first dental visit is gentle, caring and fun. We will check jaw and bite formation, gum development and any possible tooth decay. Remember to schedule regular checkups with our dentists every six months or earlier if you detect any possible problems. Call or visit us anytime, we are here to provide the best care to your infant and entire family!

Complications From Braces

At Cyberdent we strongly encourage our patients to maintain an impeccable oral hygiene particularly for the ones wearing braces. Poor maintenance during orthodontic treatment can lead to the damage of the enamel of the teeth.

The following case shows the result of enamel degradation after braces. We had to treated these teeth with porcelain veneers to restore the natural shape, shade, and functionality of the teeth.
