Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings for Kids
Your little ones need special attention when it comes to their oral health. During their first appointment, we spend more time making sure they feel comfortable in the dental office and that parents receive important information regarding at-home care and future treatments they should keep in mind. While the initial exam is relatively brief, we’ll also make sure to remove any plaque that we see, as teeth can begin developing decay as soon as they erupt.
It’s no surprise that your child is going to need some time to get used to routine brushing and flossing daily. To help them along the way, we recommend dental sealants to keep their most vulnerable teeth protected as their oral care becomes perfected. Applying the composite resin material only takes a few minutes, doesn’t hurt one bit, and keeps plaque and food debris out of the deepest pits and cracks of their teeth.
Fluoride is incredibly important for teeth at any age, but children in particular need to make sure they are getting enough to keep their developing teeth strong and healthy into adulthood. Following their cleaning, we perform a comprehensive fluoride treatment, which only takes a minute or two. Once applied, they’ll need to avoid drinking or eating any foods for the next hour in order to give it time to take effect.
Even the most dedicated oral care routines can still result in cavities. In the event that your child develops a cavity in their smile, don’t worry. Our dental office has restorative solutions that prevent future decay of their teeth and keep their smile looking natural along the way. We always take the time to explain to you and your child how the treatment works and make them feel comfortable beforehand. With routine care, their filling should last at least 10 years.
