Pediatric Exam & Cleaning
Regular dental exams and cleanings are an essential part of keeping your child’s teeth happy and healthy. This kind of preventative care helps stop problems like cavities before they start, prevents gum disease, and also supports your child’s overall health. We suggest scheduling exams and cleanings for your child every six months so that one of our gentle, friendly dentists can check in and keep things running smoothly.
Did you know that fluoride can help strengthen the enamel of your child’s teeth? Enamel is the hard outer layer of each tooth that protects the soft, sensitive interior. Over time, enamel can get worn away, leaving the tooth more vulnerable to damage or decay. However, fluoride treatments can help rebuild enamel, a process called remineralization. Our dentists can perform a fluoride treatment during your child’s regularly scheduled cleanings.
To help protect your child’s teeth from decay, our dentists can also apply sealants. Sealants are made from plastic and are placed over the surface of a tooth, forming a layer that keeps bacteria away from the tooth enamel. Sealants are quick, easy, and can help prevent cavities from forming.
Bonding is a technique that can correct minor damage to your child’s teeth. Using a small amount of a tooth-colored material called dental composite, your dentist can fill in a chipped tooth, for example, restoring the original, natural appearance. Bonding is great for fixing small cosmetic issues quickly and affordably.
