Preventative Dentistry

Everything you need to keep their teeth clean.

Preventive dentistry begins with the first tooth. The earlier the dental visit, the better the chance of preventing dental disease and helping your child belong to the cavity-free generation.

Preventive dentistry for children includes:

  • Brushing
  • Dental development
  • Flossing
  • Fluorides
  • Oral habits
  • Orthodontics
  • Parent involvement
  • Proper diet
  • Sealants
  • Sports safety

After evaluating your child's dental health, we’ll design a personalized program of home care for your child. This program will include brushing and flossing instructions, diet counseling, and if necessary, fluoride recommendations. By following these directions, you can help give your child a lifetime of healthy habits.

Tooth cleaning and polishing and fluoride treatments are all a part of your child's prevention program. But there's much more. For example, we can apply sealants to protect your child from tooth decay, help you select a mouth guard to prevent sports injuries to the face and teeth, and provide early diagnosis and care of orthodontic problems. Our pediatric dentists are uniquely trained to develop a combination of office and home preventive care to ensure your child a happy smile.
