Children’s Checkups and Cleanings
Regular checkups are an excellent opportunity for us to teach your child about taking care of their oral health – in particular, we’ll make sure that they understand exactly why brushing and flossing are so important. Of course, we’ll also spend these visits looking for signs of tooth decay and gum disease, and we’ll remove any plaque or tartar that might have built up in the spots that your little one has had trouble reaching with their toothbrush.
The teeth near the back of the mouth used for chewing called the molars have uneven surfaces where leftover food and harmful bacteria can hide. Children often have a lot of trouble keeping their molars clean even if they’re brushing every day like they should. We can give these vulnerable teeth a little extra protection with dental sealants – thin protective coatings that act as a barrier against harmful substances. Thanks to sealants, the risk of decay in molars can be lowered by up to 80%!
Have your children been getting plenty of fluoride in the water they drink? This mineral helps strengthen the teeth and improves their ability to resist decay. It’s usually found in tap water or certain foods, but we can also apply it topically to your little one’s smile! These fluoride treatments are typically performed alongside a regular checkup and cleaning; they’re especially recommended for children who are particularly vulnerable to cavities.
