My Child Will Willingly Go to the Dentist Again
“My son had a very bad experience at a dentist office where we used to live and he would scream and fight whenever I even mentioned getting his teeth cleaned and checked. I was getting desperate and started checking out dentists in the Portland area just to see what they had to offer. I found Dr. Chung quite by accident and learned that he was an expert in sedation dentistry. I felt that it may come to using sedation to get my son’s teeth checked and possibly worked on. I took him by the office and WOW it was amazing. The kind and gentle staff took over and made him feel so good that he willingly went the next time to his teeth cleaning. They did Awesome, thanks Springwater Dental.”

Teach Your Children About Good Oral Health
We treat our children in a fun loving and educational environment and will strive to meet each child’s needs on a case-by-case basis. Education involves giving information to each child to help them better prepare to take care of their dental health. Information includes that when we eat our food it creates bacteria on the surface of our teeth and gums. As this bacteria sits on our enamel, it causes plaque and tarter to combine with sugar to create an acid that will eat at that tooth enamel, which may cause dental caries or cavities. By teaching your child good oral health, brushing teeth, flossing and using mouth wash, it can greatly reduce the instances of fillings for your child. From their first birthday, we encourage you to bring your children in for a regular teeth cleaning and dental exam to ensure your child’s oral health (we do sedation dentistry). Call to schedule an appointment today in Portland at Springwater Dental (503) 902-6604 for your kids dentist.

A Few Answers for Your Child’s Oral Health
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a professional teeth cleaning and exam take place every six months for optimal oral health. Healthy smiles for life start when their first tooth shows through. Don’t be so hasty to say no to gum. Studies show that gum with Xylitol has health benefits. Thumb sucking and pacifiers may cause problems if the habit continues without correction. Sugar does play a role in tooth decay. There are three things in order for a cavity to form: bacteria, a susceptible tooth (not sealed) and sugar. What toothpaste is best? Any fluoridated children’s toothpaste approved by the American Dental Association will work great. Moms trust us. Pediatricians recommend us. Children love us. So why not call our office in Portland today for your kids dentist! We provide sedation dentistry for those who need it. (503) 902-6604.
