No matter your age, great oral health habits are a necessity for both dental and overall well-being. In our Silver Spring dentist office, we offer a full range of dental services for patients of all ages. We believe that great oral health habits start young, and we work recommend that parents and caregivers bring children to the dentist as soon as the primary teeth begin to erupt.
Just like adults, children should visit the dentist twice yearly. Due to your child’s rapidly growing teeth and gums, it is important to check for any abnormalities, cavities, and learning proper oral hygiene habits. Dr. Rever will monitor your child’s tooth development to ensure a healthy bite as they grow. If needed, we offer comprehensive orthodontic care to address any concerns that can affect your child’s growing smile and function of their bite.
There are a variety of dental treatments that will help restore your child’s teeth in case of damage, decay, or any other dental issue. Dr. Rever properly explains his plan of treatment to parents to alleviate any concern or dental anxiety. We provide a range of services in our Silver Spring dentist office to achieve top oral health.

When you and your child are comfortably seated in the office, a gentle examination of your child’s mouth will be performed to uncover any early signs of dental problems such as tooth decay, and assess the risk that your child may develop the disease in the future. Often, this kind of risk assessment can help prevent — and even reverse — the early stages of tooth decay, without the need for a dental filling.
Childhood Tooth Decay
Many people are unaware that tooth decay can affect small children and babies. However, Dr. Rever is a highly trained dentist who can properly treat your child’s oral health needs in a relaxed, safe, and comfortable environment. A child’s first dental visit can be a little scary, but we work hard to make sure their first visit is pleasant and informative.
Various ways to maintain your child’s oral health for the long run will be discussed. This may include how diet, eating habits and oral hygiene practices can help prevent tooth decay, the most common chronic disease of childhood. If any treatments (such as fluoride) are needed, a full explanation will be given. Tips on cleaning and brushing effectively will be reviewed and a follow-up visit will be scheduled as required.
