Starting your child out right with regular home care and good oral hygiene practices is vital for a lifetime of healthy smiles. From the very first time a tooth appears as an infant, it is important for you to teach your children the proper way to brush their teeth. The best medicine is preventive medicine, and we provide a variety of preventive and pediatric dentistry procedures.
We recommend coming in to see us for regular cleanings every six months and getting an annual checkup. When you get a professional cleaning from one of our hygienists on a regular basis along with good home care practices, together, we can keep your mouth healthy and free from decay. With good oral hygiene you may also notice your six-month cleanings are actually less uncomfortable—and even enjoyable.
With regular exams from our doctors, we will be able to catch any issues before they become big, painful problems. If an issue is found during an exam, sealantsmay be just the simple solution you need to correct the problem. We do recommend children getting sealants on their molars because as their teeth are still growing and the deep grooves easily catch food and bacteria, which can lead to tooth decay. A simple sealant now can prevent fillings later.
We provide oral cancer screenings with VELscope®. Using a special blue light and fluorescence technology, we can detect oral cancer in its earliest stages. There are so many ways to protect yourself and your family from painful and costly dental issues. Regular maintenance now will save you time, money, and pain in the future.
