Cleaning & Prevention
A focus on preventive dentistry helps your child maintain the highest standard of oral health while limiting dental expenditures. A partnership between you, your child, and our team pays dividends, protecting your smile now and well into the future.
At home, prevention may include helping your child brush and floss twice a day. But many strategies and oral health aids exist that may help your child care for their mouth even better. Often parents are surprised to learn that a particular toothpaste, rinse, or specialized toothpick will serve them help their child make all the difference in their efforts. Our team can help customize solutions that enhance your child’s daily efforts, often turning your (and your child’s) frustration into smiles at the healthy changes that occur.
Your child’s diet plays a critical role in their oral health as well. Acidic foods and drinks can accelerate deterioration of their teeth, and certain foods can enhance your child’s health and build strength in their jawbone and gums. Our team believes in bringing your child’s efforts and ours into balance for optimum health.
And of course, regular dental exams and cleanings prove vital in preventing decay and gum disease as your child keeps daily habits consistent. With a proactive approach, together we can prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.
Every time your child or teen is in our chair, we review many aspects of their health. Subtle changes in the lining of their mouth calls for a closer evaluation. Early detection of oral cancer saves many lives every year, and while childhood oral cancer is rare, we’re trained to recognize a myriad of oral tissue abnormalities.
Optimal dental health starts with a healthy partnership between your child and our team. While we can provide critical support, your efforts in helping your child maintain a regular at-home brushing and flossing schedule makes all the difference. And with the unlimited number of product resources available today, we can help you customize a protocol that works perfectly for your child’s dental condition.
Everyone loves the smooth, glassy surface of freshly polished teeth. Our registered dental hygienists help your child maintain optimal health, which goes far beyond polished enamel. With a regular preventive schedule, we can remove the bacterial deposits that lead to dental disease. But we can also monitor for silent problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease before they become major issues.
