Short Pump Dental is the perfect place to keep your family's smiles healthy and happy. Our experienced dental professionals are committed to providing the highest quality care for kids in a friendly, welcoming environment. Since children need to establish good oral hygiene habits early, we take extra steps to ensure they know how to maintain a healthy smile.

Eat a Healthy Meal

A balanced diet is essential for strong teeth and healthy gums.Eating fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and low-fat dairy products during regular meals helps promote good oral hygiene by providing the body with the necessary vitamins and minerals.

Be careful about snacking. When it comes to sugary snacks (like cookies, candy, chips, and crackers), it's best to enjoy them in moderation. Limiting sugary snacks reduces the risk of tooth decay. So, healthy snacks like fresh vegetables, fruits, low-fat cheeses, and yogurts are better choices for looking after your teeth.

Practice Good Brushing Habits

Brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes with a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste. Make sure to brush every surface of each tooth, including the backside and chewing surfaces.

It would be best to floss at least once daily to remove plaque and debris between teeth.If your child has braces, brush around the wires and brackets thoroughly, as these areas are more prone to accumulating bacteria and food items.

We Offer Tooth Sealants

Sealants are made from a resin material and help protect the teeth from food particles and bacteria by sealing off their natural grooves and pits.

It's an easy and fast treatment that gives long-lasting protection for your children's teeth, and our dentists will perform check-ups when you come in for bi-annual oral exams (and cleanings).

We Provide Fluoride Treatment

Did you know that fluoride is nature's cavity fighter? It helps prevent tooth decay in children and adults by strengthening the enamel on their teeth.

Fluoride is usually found in the tap water we drink and use to cook with. Still, if you need more, our experienced team at Short Pump Dental can evaluate the amount of fluoride in your primary source of drinking water (and provide supplements if required).

We also have many different types of mouth rinses, toothpaste, and dental flosses containing fluoride on the market. This can help reduce the acid in your teeth so they remain healthy.
