Routine care
Your child should ideally be seen every six months for routine check-ups and cleanings. Maintaining recall appointments helps us to address any concerns before they become symptomatic. X-rays are taken once a year to diagnose any carries (cavities) developing between the teeth. These, along with a clinical exam by the Doctor, allow us to provide comprehensive care for your child.

The best preventative care begins at home. Teeth should be brushed twice a day and flossed one time a day. Children should be assisted in these tasks until the age of eight. Place a brushing/flossing chart in your bathroom and mark each time they brush and floss. Positive reinforcement and team effort make all the difference in maintaining a healthy, bright smile.

Dental sealants play an important role in maintaining a healthy mouth. A sealant is a white, resin material that is placed on the permanent molars in order to prevent cavities from forming on the chewing surface. Often times the grooves of the molars are very deep, trapping food and plaque. Toothbrush bristles cannot reach down into these grooves to remove the buildup. Sealants can help protect these areas by acting as a barrier making it easier to clean the surface with your toothbrush.

All of the materials we use are BPA and BIS-GMA free and only take a few minutes to apply. The doctors will evaluate your child’s molars to ensure proper timing for placing dental sealants.
