Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings for Kids
When your child arrives for their initial appointment, our main goal is to help them get acclimated to the dental office and to the idea of regular visits. This way, performing specific services like checkups and cleanings becomes easier. Once they get comfortable, we’ll carefully examine their mouth and confirm no underlying problems are present. This will be followed up with a detailed, yet gentle dental cleaning. This works to remove and plaque or tartar that may have been missed during routine at-home care.
As your child gets used to practicing brushing and flossing at home, there’s a reasonable chance that they miss specific areas that are more cavity-prone than others. In most cases, this refers to the molars and premolars, two types of teeth that have deep pits and cracks for food debris and bacteria to get stuck in. Dental sealants are made from composite resin and are designed to provide additional protection to vulnerable teeth, particularly during the early stages of development.
Your child’s teeth need all the protection it can get, especially as they get used to practicing oral care on a regular basis. This makes fluoride therapy all the more important and is exactly why we recommend it during every routine checkup. Depending on your child’s risk to tooth decay, it may be performed anywhere between two and four times a year. Thankfully, applying fluoride takes just a few minutes and is 100% painless.
While we do everything we can do prevent cavities from developing, sometimes they can still find their way in your child’s teeth, despite the best preventive habits. In the event your child has a cavity, they won’t have to receive amalgam fillings you may have previously. Instead, we use tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin. By opting for metal-free materials, we can retain more of your child’s natural tooth and reduce the risk of their filling fracturing their tooth further.
Do you or your child participate in sports? A mouthguard can help protect the teeth from injury due to unseen collisions, and rather than getting a generic, uncomfortable one from the store, we can provide you with a completely custom-made mouthguard right in our dental office. It’ll be much more comfortable AND do a better job of defending your smile.
