Early Dental Care

Early Dental Care

Tell. Show. Do.

We use this technique on virtually all young patients. We explain to our patients what we’re going to do. We show them what we’re going to do. And then we do it.

Recare Appointments

Our recare or “routine checkup” appointments are more than just a cleaning. Every recare visit is an opportunity to effectively teach and reinforce oral health.

Preventative Sealants

To prevent this we place a ‘sealant’ which is a hard white material which flows into the grooves and fissures on the surface of the teeth and effectively prevents food remnants from sticking to the teeth. This is a non invasive procedure which is a very effective and easy way to avoid cavities.

Fluoride Treatment

When fluoride is used in the right amounts and on a routine basis it helps to prevent tooth decay. It keeps the enamel strong and encourages “remineralization,”or hardening of weakened areas that are often the beginning of a cavity. Fluoride occurs naturally in water, foods, and dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, gels, varnish and supplements. Fluoride could be a key element of an affective preventive program.

Mouth Guards

Mouth guards can offer protection to patients with persistent grinding (bruxism) and other habits such as jaw clenching. The “night guard” requires careful evaluation and becomes a part of the patient’s routine check up. Athletic mouth guards are another common reason for mouth guards. They can prevent serious dental injuries to active kids.
