Ensure your child gets off to a good start with preventive dentistry treatments, such as exams and cleanings at our Brier Creek office. Starting your children off with good habits helps to provide a lifetime of good oral health.

Preventive dentistry is a form of oral care that helps to keep the teeth and mouth healthy by avoiding cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. There are a variety of preventative measures, including regular check-ups and brushing your teeth twice daily with toothpaste to help maintain optimal dental health.

Encouraging children to learn how to care for their own teeth at an early age will ensure they are on track.

Dental Cleaning

Teeth cleanings are a routine preventive treatment that is carried out to remove plaque build-up and tartar from the teeth.

The treatment is not painful, but the instruments used to remove the plaque and polish the teeth may make your child anxious if they haven't had the treatment before. However, our family dentist will explain fully to your child what is going to happen and reassure them that there is nothing to be worried about.

Dental Exam

Dental examinations are important for children as well as adults. The dentist can check to see if there is anything that parents may have missed, but it isn't always easy with a toddler who may get fidgety when sitting still for long periods.

Thus, a dental examination for a child of this age is very short with the dentist examining the mouth briefly and perhaps adding a fluoride application to the teeth.

As your child grows older, they will find it easier to get through the exam because they'll know what to expect.

The most common concern as children get older is cavities.

Your child may be advised on the need to clean the teeth well and to try to limit sugary drinks and foods to one sitting, preferably with a meal. Eventually, your child may require more thorough examinations, particularly if they have malocclusion issues where orthodontic treatment may be advised.

Dentistry for Kids

Dentistry for kids helps to identify problems early on in your child's development before they become worse.

It can include promoting good oral health habits, such as flossing, as well as advice on habits that can be detrimental to dental health, such as thumb sucking.

It can also include routine treatments, such as fluoride applications and routine X-rays to monitor teeth and jaws.

When Should Preventive Dentistry Start?

As preventive dentistry is a crucial first line of defense in preserving your child's teeth and avoiding dental work it needs to start early and is most effective when the first tooth comes through, or shortly thereafter.

After that, schedule routine visits every six months for exams, cleaning, fluoride treatments, and any other necessary care such as fillings that may be needed.

Dental visits every six months are recommended for all members of the family.
