Helping maintain your child’s healthy smile starts with scheduling checkups twice a year. This gives us the opportunity to address any developing issues in a timely manner and plan a treatment, if needed.
Our office and team offer a relaxed and comfortable environment so that your child—from infant to age 18—can remain at ease during an exam. We recommend children see a dentist once a baby tooth emerges, and we often see children under three years old. We perform a knee-to-knee exam for infants.
During a first visit, we’ll explain all the equipment and let your child become used to the sights and sounds of our office before beginning the dental checkup. During this time, we also let parents know how to properly brush teeth and maintain good oral habits for infants and young children.
Checkups and Cleanings
Our checkups start with a visual exam. We may use digital X-rays to help build a dental history for your child and to have a more accurate picture of what is happening in your child’s mouth. The digital X-rays are safe.
We offer a gentle dental cleaning to help remove any plaque and tartar that may have built up on your child’s teeth. This not only helps keep your child’s teeth healthy, but may help prevent gum disease, too.
Fluoride treatments are another way to help protect your child. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral often found in drinking water. Fluoride can help remineralize the enamel on a tooth and reduce the risk of tooth decay. We recommend fluoride treatments to help promote strong and healthy teeth for your child.
