Good oral hygiene is important at every stage of life — from children to adults to senior citizens. At Hortman Carney Dental, we are committed to providing dental care to all members of your family, helping each one achieve a healthy smile throughout their life.
One of the most critical aspects of caring for a child’s teeth is preventing cavities. Many parents are surprised to learn that we have seen cavities in children as young as 2 years-old. Therefore, it is important that children get their teeth cleaned regularly — starting at about age 2 — and learn how to properly care for them.
In adulthood, you should continue preventive services like cleaning and X-rays. And as you move into your senior years, it’s important to go to the dentist regularly, even if you have dentures. Oral health is an indicator of overall health, and your dentist will perform an oral cancer screening at your hygiene appointments.Make an Appointment
