Cleanings, Exams and X-rays
Brushing and flossing is an important part of a good oral hygiene routine for your child, but what many people forget is regular cleaning and exam is just as important as regular brushing and flossing. We recommend cleaning and exam once every six months to a year for most of our patients. During this time we will take digital X-rays of their mouth to check on the progression of their adult teeth and ensure that there are no budding issues with their oral health. If we notice the early signs of a cavity, we can take care of it while it’s still small or even prevents it altogether. Read More About Cleanings, Exams and X-rays
Did you know that kids can taste more sweetness than adults? It’s true. Young tastebuds have a tremendous sensitivity to sugar, which is why so many kids enjoy sweets, it’s also why we offer fluoride treatments to help protect their growing teeth. Kids are less likely to take good care of their teeth and more likely to eat things that will hurt their oral health, so it’s important to give their teeth a fighting chance. Fluoride helps to strengthen the enamel that protects and shields their teeth from decay. Fluoride treatments are fast and cost-effective! Read More About Fluoride Treatments
