For all pediatric dentist visits, we provide a thorough teeth examination as well as cleaning services. As children are still learning proper brushing and flossing techniques we can provide comprehensive teeth cleaning that protects against particle, plaque and buildup on the enamel or below the gum line that can lead to gingivitis and/or cavities.
Each child has a unique set of teeth and accordingly, they require their own dental plan. We’ll give them instructions on how to correctly carry out flossing, teeth cleaning and dental hygiene practices.
Increasingly, it has become understood that having sealant applied to your child’s teeth can be beneficial, particularly if they are at a higher risk of decay. Dental sealant is fine layer of safe plastic that is coated over the teeth. It helps protect the key problem areas - the gaps and grooves in which food particles can be difficult to brush and floss. Ask your pediatric dentist about the benefits of dental sealant and how it can help be part of your child’s dental plan.
It is not uncommon that children will get cavities. There are many reasons this can occur, including irregular brushing, flossing and dietary factors. A cavity is best addressed as soon as possible to prevent tooth erosion. The cavity is first cleaned and the tooth is isolated and prepared for a filling. Different filling materials are available including metal and composite resin each that bringing certain benefits such as cost, feel, appearance, and strength.
We recognize that this procedure can cause some children to be afraid, and we have the training to help them relax, and feel as little discomfort as possible.
