Most plans run from January to December and do not roll over from one period to the next. You want to do everything possible to ensure your child’s smile grows into a healthy, beautiful one — and that’s why it’s time to book a checkup and cleaning with their dentist in Casper before the year is up.

Many parents are often confounded when deciding which type of toothpaste to give their young child, and your children’s dentist in Casper is here to help. As a general rule, a fluoridated toothpaste is recommended as soon as your child begins cutting his/her first set of teeth. When a toothpaste containing fluoride is used, it is important to only use a rice-sized smear and to wipe the saliva/toothpaste slurry from your child’s mouth after brushing. Excessive fluoride ingestion prior to the age of three can cause mottling in your child’s front teeth, so it is important that your child not swallow the toothpaste.
