Cavity Prevention Treatments
Children’s Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Routine checkups and cleanings are just as important for your child as they are for you, especially because their smile is still growing. Our team’s goal is to catch any issues early on, like dental misalignment or primary signs of cavities, before they become even larger problems down the road. We’ll also conduct thorough professional cleanings to prevent the accumulation of plaque and tartar, which causes cavities . Our team will also sit down with your child to talk about their oral health, teaching them how to brush and floss properly to make sure that they can enjoy all of their pearly whites for the rest of their life.
One of the most common oral health problems among children is cavities, because they’re still learning how to properly take care of their smile by brushing and flossing every day. Some children also have deep grooves and pits in their molars that are effective at trapping plaque and food debris that can cause decay. To help prevent this from occurring, we offer dental sealants. It’s a fast, effective, and completely painless treatment that involves us brushing clear, protective shields over the biting surface of their molars to keep debris from accumulating.
You’ve likely heard that fluoride is added to local water sources to prevent cavities. This naturally derived mineral helps build and strengthen the outermost layer of our teeth, called the enamel. It protects the more vulnerable layers that lie beneath it, like the dentin. If your child isn’t getting enough of it, we may suggest a quick and pain-free fluoride treatment. All we do is place a fluoridated gel over the surface of the teeth and wipe it off, providing extra cavity defense.
Is your child complaining of a painful toothache? Just like for adults, this could be a sign that an untreated cavity has created a path for harmful oral bacteria to access and attack the pulp located in the inner chamber of their tooth. We offer pulp therapy, where we’ll remove the damaged portion of pulp to get rid of their pain and preserve their tooth until it falls out naturally. Afterward, we’ll top their tooth off with a customized dental crown to protect it and allow them to continue using it as they normally would.
