Do you feel a bit antsy when it comes to scheduling dental appointments for your little one? We understand that as a parent, you are constantly striving to make the best choices for your child’s comfort and health. With this in mind, we encourage you to learn more about children’s dentistry as it pertains to our practice. The more dedicated you are to protecting your child’s smile early on in life, the better immediate and long-term results you can expect. Wondering what to expect from us regarding your child’s smile care? Look over the following:
Don’t Wait – The Time Is Now
Your child’s teeth are clean, new, and still under development. The sooner we see your child and begin providing dental care, the greater the chances of your child’s smile remaining healthy and adorable for many years to come. We will help keep your child’s teeth and gums clean with gentle dental cleanings, and we will guide development during dental checkups. These visits will also give us time to explain and demonstrate best techniques for home care practices to you and your child.
We Offer Sealants
You should take into consideration the significant impact sealants can have on your child’s teeth. During this treatment, we will carefully paint on a thin, clear coating of plastic over your child’s back teeth – chewing surfaces only. Rather than worrying about your child’s ability to thoroughly remove plaque and debris from these fissure-filled tooth surfaces, you can rest easy knowing the sealants are doing a good portion of the work, while your child learns.
Fluoride Treatments Are Helpful
Fluoride is a natural mineral. Though your child may be exposed to some fluoride, we may also suggest a bit more when it comes to effective children’s dentistry. By applying it to your child’s teeth, we offer improved tooth strength and additional protection against tooth decay. Fluoride can “remineralize” areas of teeth that are in danger of softening and developing into cavities.
