Pediatric Cleanings & Exams

Just as for adults, dental check-ups and cleanings for kids are important. Our friendly dental team will ensure your child's teeth and gums are clean and healthy. We also examine their mouth and any necessary x-rays to catch any potential toothy troubles early. These visits are a great time to chat about what to expect as your child's smile grows, including tips for oral care at home and food choices that can help keep their teeth strong and bright.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

When a pesky cavity pops up in your child's teeth, Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) might come to the rescue! This kid-friendly procedure is quick, pain-free, and doesn't involve any drills or shots. It's like painting a superhero shield on their tooth that fights off decay-causing bacteria and strengthens their tooth. So, if your child has a cavity, fillings aren't the only heroes in town!

Pediatric Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays, a quick and efficient method for capturing images of your child's dental health, are used only when deemed necessary by the dentist. Typically, x-rays are recommended every few years, though children with a higher risk of oral disease may need more frequent scans.

Pediatric Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are like invisible tooth protectors! We paint a clear, safe resin on your child's teeth that hardens under a special light. It acts like a shield, keeping away cavity-causing bacteria and food particles. This treatment is especially great for back teeth, where cavities are most likely to form.

Nutritional Counseling

We believe in a "whole health" approach, which includes yummy, healthy food choices. It's not always easy to change eating habits, but it's definitely worth it. Eating well benefits not only your child's smile but their overall wellbeing. Let us help guide you in creating tooth-friendly menus that the whole family will love!

Pediatric Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride treatments offer a simple, non-invasive way to prevent dental decay. After your child's cleaning, a fluoride-rich gel or varnish is applied, followed by a short period of no eating or drinking. Fluoride initiates a process called “remineralization,” strengthening teeth with essential minerals.
