From the very beginning, the care of your infant’s gums and teeth is so important. You should wipe your child’s mouth with a damp cloth before you put him or her to bed at night. Milk, juice or any other sweetened liquid can leave a residue on the child’s gums, resulting in early tooth decay. Always try to refrain from letting your child go to bed with a sippee cup or bottle. It is a good rule of thumb to only allow your child to drink water after they have brushed their teeth at night. Encourage your child not to share cups, pacifiers, spoons or toothbrushes with other siblings; this may encourage the spread of cavity producing bacteria.
From the time your child starts teething, establish the practice of brushing twice a day. This will help instill good habits in your child’s routine. Start by using a toothbrush with soft-bristles. You can start with only water or toothpaste that does not contain any fluoride. Fluoride can be used when the child is old enough to spit. Water contains different levels of fluoride depending on where you live. It is best to consult with your dentist to determine if an added supplement of fluoride is needed for your child.
To ensure your infant’s oral health:
Be patient while teaching your child to brush. They may throw a fit and cry when you try and brush their teeth, just be patient and persistent and you will prevail. Like anything else, if you stick with it they will eventually appreciate your tender care and attention to their teeth.
They were so friendly and my daughter loved them! They made sure I understood everything before doing any work. I really felt like they loved my girl and wanted to make her comfortable. I would recommend them to everyone!- Heather H.
Love Burg!! The dentists are fantastic, able to explain exactly what is needed and why. And they talk to my boys, instead of only to me; they include then kids in the decisions. Very patient and friendly. Love the front desk staff, too.- Jessica K.
What a great experience! My son has been terrified of going to the dentist. The staff was so kind and engaging that he didn’t even bat an eye. They were able to get more done with no tears then the past three dental offices we went to.- Sarah P.
We love Burg Children’s Dentistry! The staff is so kind and patient and they are so gentle with the kids. My daughter is four and loves going to the dentist because they make it so fun and comfortable. I’m grateful we live close to such a great dental office!- Claire M.
I love this place, but what is more important is that my daughter loves this place. She looks forward to going to the dentist. I did not grow up with the same experience. I’m confident that she is being taken care of on every visit.- Sara R.
Amazing staff. From the receptionist to the doctor himself. Very patient with my fifteen month old who wouldn’t lay down to me filling out my paperwork with a newborn in tow. Our family will be returning for sure!- Jon & Melissa L.
The staff is so great with my kids. On the way for his visit he says, “I LOVE going to the dentist!” Which is funny considering how much I dread it! Dr Nielsen is so nice and takes the time to explain everything he sees.- Christina T.
The folks at Burg Children’s Dentistry are excellent! Our four year old daughter loves going there and they have set her up to enjoy going to the dentist for years to come! I have recommended them to friends already! Thanks for a great job guys!- Watt C.
