Tips for Maintaining Your Child's Oral Health

  • Promote consistent flossing and brushing.
  • Minimize sugar-filled drinks and snacks.
  • Plan regular dental examinations for every six months.
  • Make sure that your youngster wears a mouthguard when participating in sports.


To keep your teeth and gums healthy, it is important to schedule regular checkups and dental cleanings. The American Dental Association (ADA) advises adult patients to visit the dentist at least once every six months. Regular dental cleanings remove stains and plaque buildup, preventing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) connect the jaw to the skull bone. When these joints are strained, used excessively, or otherwise damaged, pain when moving the jaw or limited jaw mobility may occur. When this happens, patients are said to suffer from TMJ dysfunction or TMD.

We are happy to process and file claims for most major dental insurance providers. We are in-network with a variety of PPO benefit plans and MassHealth.

Yes. Dental decay can occur as soon as children have teeth. Dental decay progresses faster in children, so it is recommended x-rays occur on a regular basis as prescribed by the dentist.
