From the age of one, parents are encouraged to schedule regular dental visits for their children. Pediatric dentistry can contribute to a healthy smile and consistent dental care. Give your child confidence with the tools they need to maintain a healthy smile and build habits that will stay with them for a lifetime!
Cleanings & Exams
Regular dental check-ups typically include both a dental cleaning and exam. Scheduling a dental visit every six months for your child allows their dentist to catch early signs of decay or infection. When addressed right away, your child can avoid extensive treatment and preserve their natural smile. When baby teeth are not properly cared for, decay or infection can transfer to permanent teeth as they erupt underneath the baby teeth. Consistent dental care is key to a healthy smile!
During a regular office visit, your child’s dentist may recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride treatments are quick, painless and work to strengthen your child’s teeth. Your child’s dentist will help you understand the best type of fluoride treatment for your child’s dental health and recommend these treatments whenever needed.
When a child’s baby tooth falls out before the permanent tooth is ready to take its place, a spacer can be used to maintain the open space until the permanent tooth fully erupts. Spacers can help your child avoid the need for extensive orthodontic treatment and encourage your child’s smile to stay more aligned as it develops.
To take a closer look at your child’s smile, their dentist will periodically perform digital x-rays. These x-rays can show signs of decay or other dental issues that an exam will not reveal. X-rays can be stored for future reference and sent to a specialist whenever needed.
When your child needs a cavity to be filled, we offer metal-free fillings that are durable and blend in naturally. Fillings are a quick and painless treatment that can help preserve natural teeth and restore the function of your child’s smile.
Around the age of seven, your child’s dentist may recommend dental sealants. Dental sealants are a simple application to the back molars with a clear protective coating. Sealants cover the back molars and hard-to-reach areas of the teeth to protect them from decay. Once applied, sealants are made to last for several years.
