Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more.
There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings. To maintain optimal oral health, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visits to the dentist at regular intervals determined by a dentist. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white. Children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age.
Dental checkups and teeth cleanings are an essential part of oral health care for every patient we treat, but establishing a routine of visiting the dentist twice a year at an early age sets kids up for a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles. We recommend kids visit the Dentists for their first pediatric dental checkup and teeth cleaning following the eruption of their first tooth or before their first birthday.
Restorative dentistry refers to procedures that restore your mouth to optimal oral health.
At Preventive Dentistry for Kids we believe in creating optimal oral health for each patient, restoring and enhancing your mouth, teeth and gums to eradicate oral diseases and restore your beautiful smile.
No two children are exactly the same and that is why we tailor our approach to meet a child’s individual needs.
Dental exams, digital x-rays, teeth cleaning, dental sealants, flouride treatments, and other procedures are all everyday occurrences for the pediatric dental team. One main difference is that our pediatric dentists and their team of assistants are experts in keeping their young patients’ physical and psychological needs at the forefront, keeping in mind that children’s dental fears can be very real, and working to alleviate those fears.
