Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings for Kids
Regular checkups and cleanings are important for patients of all ages, but children will especially benefit because they give our team the chance to catch any developmental concerns in their earliest stages. We’ll be sure to match our treatment style to their current age and level of emotional maturity as well so that the experience is never too overwhelming. We’ll pinpoint tooth decay in its earliest stages, get rid of harmful plaque, leave the enamel surfaces nicely polished, and much more!
As children start brushing and flossing on their own at home, it’s likely that they may miss the hard-to-reach surfaces of the premolars and molars in the back of the mouth. This can lead to serious cavities, which is why our team strongly recommends the placement of dental sealants. Sealants are made of a plastic-based substance that’s completely safe and very tough. They’ll seal over the deep pits and grooves, blocking out food particles and bacteria that would otherwise stick there and keeping your family’s smile safer.
Did you know that drinking fluoridated water on a regular basis can reduce overall instances of tooth decay by approximately 25% to 30% in children? Regular exposure to this mineral is highly encouraged, and our team can provide professional applications during checkups and cleanings for an added boost of smile protection. The process is pain-free and only takes a few minutes of time.
Nearly everyone will experience at least one cavity over the course of their lives, and many of these cases happen in the early years despite our team’s best efforts to prevent them. If your son or daughter is complaining about mouth pain, Donlands Family Dentistry offers tooth-colored fillings as a simple and effective method for repairing this pesky damage. Unlike traditional amalgam, composite resin is very lifelike and conservative, allowing for smaller fillings that actually support the remaining dental structure.
If your child is a burgeoning athlete, it’s very important to keep in mind that their growing smile may be at risk. Instead of buying a “one size fits all” oral appliance from the store, why not invest in a custom-made mouthguard from Donlands Family Dentistry? This device is 100% customized, ensuring much greater comfort and stability while out on the court or field. Better yet, their flexibility allows for easier breathing and speaking.
