In order to maintain the best oral health possible, it’s important for children to receive regular professional cleaning from a pediatric dentist. Because of the sensitive nature of an infant’s gums and teeth, it is extremely important to allow a pediatric dentist to clean the mouth accordingly.
At our pediatric dental office, we provide several fluoride treatments to help keep your child’s teeth healthy. Some of these treatments include:
· Fluoride treatments at the dentist office (once a year).
· Bottles of fluoride given to you (a few times a year).
· Fluoride gel (used as needed).
Dental sealants provide additional protection against tooth cavities. A dental sealant is a thin layer of plastic that can be applied to your child’s teeth. Sealants can be clear or white but generally take the color of your child’s tooth as they age. The thick protective sealant will prevent bacteria from penetrating into a chip or groove in the tooth, which could then lead to cavities and eventually pain and sensitivity.
At Smile Explorers, our pediatric dentists are highly trained and understand the importance of protecting your child’s teeth. We are dedicated to helping you maintain healthy teeth for a lifetime, and our entire team will be there every step of the way. Don’t forget: professional pediatric dental cleanings are vital in preventing tooth decay. Call our office today to schedule your child’s Pediatric Teeth Cleaning!
