Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Routine checkups for your children help us confirm no underlying issues are present and ensure their at-home oral hygiene is working to keep dental disease at bay. Our dentists are more than prepared to help them get comfortable during every step of their visit. For very young patients, the exam and cleaning portions of their appointment are generally quite brief. Instead, we focus more attention on helping them get acquainted with the dental office as well as answering any questions you have about their at-home care or other preventive services we offer.
Child tooth decay is one of the most common chronic conditions in children, even more so than asthma. That’s why we always recommend routine fluoride therapy for very young patients to provide their enamel with additional strength as their smiles grow and develop. Following their exam and cleaning, we can apply a varnish to their teeth, a process that is quick, painless, and incredibly effective, both immediately and in the long-term.
It’s important for children to be active, however, they shouldn’t have to put their smile at risk every time they want to play outside or participate in after-school, sports-related activities. With the help of a custom-made mouthguard designed using our advanced digital impression software, you can feel confident knowing your child’s developing teeth are significantly safer even when playing sports like football, basketball, baseball, and other activities with a high risk for sudden impact.
