Habit Control

It is important to intercept and discourage harmful dental habits that may effect your child's growth potential. Children who continue to suck thumbs or pacifiers after the age of five are at high-risk for developing dental complications. Grinding habit can shorten and blunt the teeth which can lead to headaches, muscle pain and stunted jaw growth. Regularly scheduled dental visits allow us to teach effective oral hygiene and monitor jaw and mouth development for the best.
