What Does My Child Need In A Dentist?
HOW WE HELP PATIENTS AT DIFFERENT STAGES IN THEIR LIFE
"Nutrition and proper feeding through the mouth is the key to healthy infant development."
Starting with pregnancy, what you eat affects both the teeth and structural development in the fetus. Nutrition helps with stronger teeth, facial development, and larger airways.
Once your baby is born, one of the common problems in infants that often goes undetected or undiagnosed is a tongue and/or lip tie. This is a condition that can cause you baby pain or prevent them from breastfeeding properly.
Dr. Johal is certified to perform laser surgery by the American Board of Laser Surgery. She has performed hundreds of functional tongue tie releases and is training others on this amazing procedure to help more patients.
Having the tongue in the correct position allows for optimal facial growth and allows for proper nasal breathing.
Dr. Johal used Co2 laser by Light Scalpel, for painless and quick release. She was the first one to buy this amazing laser, that does not cause any bleeding or burning like other lasers on the market. She released her own two boys with the same laser, at the ages of 4 and 6.
Children Age 1-6
"Addressing critical issues and forming good habits at a young age can make a difference that will last a life time."
3. Age 7+
"Continuing education and good oral hygiene at home promotes better choices and overall health."
Education is especially popular among older children and teenagers. Children and teens love to see the bacteria and understand the harm these bacteria are doing, this can help improve oral hygiene at home.
In addition to regular cleaning visits, orthodontic work, pain, postural correction, or any specialty needs, Shannon loves working with our dental family's children to show them how to view the bacteria in their saliva and help them learn more about the importance of having good dental health.
