Pediatric Cleaning & Prevention
Keeping a regular preventative maintenance schedule with your child’s hygienist and our doctors helps you prevent not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also avoid costly procedures and extra time in the hygiene chair.
A regular home prevention routine usually consists of having your child brush at least twice a day and floss at least once per day. But did you know there are other tools to make taking care of your child’s mouth a little easier? Depending on your child’s needs, there is special toothpaste, rinses, and even flossing aids that can help your child keep their smile bright and healthy for years to come. True Dental Care can help you find the best tools to enhance your child’s daily hygiene routine making their professional cleaning appointments shorter and less stressful.
Another significant factor in your child’s oral health is their diet. Acidic foods and drinks can erode enamel just as a balanced diet can help keep their teeth and gums strong and healthy.
Regular professional exams and cleanings, a dedicated at-home hygiene routine, and a healthy, balanced diet can help prevent minor issues from becoming major procedures.
Our doctors will review proper diet, age-appropriate hygiene, and go over pacifier use to make sure your child’s oral health starts strong and stays strong.
During a checkup, will your child’s hygienist will clean their teeth and, if necessary, take x-rays and give your child a fluoride treatment. Our doctors will perform an exam and review if any treatment is needed.
Today’s digital x-rays expose your child to less radiation than ever before. Lead aprons and taking x-rays only when necessary further reduce your child’s exposure.
Our doctors and their hygiene team are happy to answer all your questions about fluoride treatments and treatment options.
