Seeking out and scheduling dental care for your children can feel like an extraordinary challenge. You want the best for your little one, which includes a caring team of dental professionals, as well as the comprehensive pediatric service options your son or daughter needs. The good news is that you can find all of that under one roof. We think of your child’s smile in terms of complete development, from the moment teeth begin erupting until permanent teeth show up and may or may not require help with alignment. Ready to find out more about what you can expect? Consider the following services breakdown:
Cleanings and Checkups
The basis of excellent preventive care includes cleanings and checkups. To keep your child’s teeth and gums healthy, we will aid in the removal of plaque with a cleaning (we will address plaque your little one simply cannot remove with home brushing and flossing). We will also monitor your child’s oral health with checkups, so we can observe and guide growth, while addressing any concerns that may arise.
A sealant is a protective barrier that we will paint over your child’s back teeth. By covering chewing surfaces, we help inhibit plaque and food from hiding on back teeth, thereby preventing tooth decay. This is a common pediatric service that offers exceptional protection to teeth.
A naturally occurring mineral, fluoride provides your child’s teeth with extra strength. It may also re-mineralize areas that have begun to soften, potentially forming into future cavities. This supplement will therefore assist in the prevention of cavity formation.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
We will monitor your child’s teeth (and what we can only see with X-rays) every six months during checkups. This pediatric service permits us to detect wisdom teeth growth early on, suggesting wisdom tooth removal if they appear to develop improperly.
Hopefully, your child’s permanent teeth develop in excellent alignment. However, if they appear to develop in a misaligned fashion, we will implement orthodontic care to guide teeth into an aligned, balanced bite.
