Like many parents, you may feel quite anxious about finding ways to protect your child’s oral health. We understand! As much as you hope your child develops an independent commitment to keeping his or her smile healthy, you would like to take steps to safeguard those beautiful teeth for a lifetime. Good news: We offer a compassionate approach and comprehensive children’s dentistry treatments. Consider a couple steps that will make sure you’re doing all that you can for your child’s grin.
Step #1: Schedule A Children’s Dentistry Visit
The first step in protecting your child’s smile is always to schedule a preventive visit. During this time, we will examine your little one’s smile and provide a thorough cleaning. We suggest this begins as soon as your child’s first tooth shows up! As a result, we can keep plaque and tartar at bay, while steering your child’s oral development in the proper direction.
Step #2: Agree To Preventive Treatments
During your children’s dentistry visit, we may make some suggestions for preventive treatments that offer exceptional benefits. Your best option is to agree to these recommendations, which may include one or both of the following:
- Fluoride Treatment: This mineral, which occurs in nature, is known for its ability to strengthen tooth tissue, while returning minerals to areas that have just begun to experience the softening effects of tooth decay.
- Dental Sealants: Sealants are thin plastic coatings that keep plaque and food from congregating on (and hiding within) the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth.
