Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings for Kids

Making sure that your child receives regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings every six months is important. The first should occur before they reach the age of one. These visits allow Dr. B to examine the state of your child’s developing smile and offer suggestions regarding ways to ensure better oral health and hygiene at home. We’ll check for any potential problems and clean any existing teeth before they leave.

Dental Sealants

The chewing surfaces of little teeth can harbor dangerous bacteria and food particles. Without proper cleaning, the pits and grooves can easily trap harmful plaque and lead to the formation of cavities. But with dental sealants, our team can cover your child’s molars and premolars with this clear coating, minimizing the potential for food particles and bacteria to penetrate and reach the enamel. This is especially helpful for children who are still learning how to properly clean those hard-to-reach areas of the mouth.

Non-Nutritive Oral Habits

Infants and toddlers often turn to thumb-sucking and pacifiers to help self-soothe. Although harmless during this stage of life, prolonged practice of these habits can lead to facial deformities and bite imperfections. This is why our team can provide stress-free tips to help your little one give up these non-nutritive habits and avoid the possibility of extensive, complex, and timely orthodontic or surgical treatment in the future.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

No athlete should be in a game without proper mouth gear. Helmets and pads may also be essential, but your child should not be without something to protect their teeth and gums. With a customized athletic mouthguard provided by our team, we can help safeguard your child’s smile no matter which sport they play. As a protective barrier, it can absorb unexpected pressure, reducing the risk of damaged teeth that require the help of an emergency dentist.

Pulp Therapy

An infection that reaches the inner layer of your child’s tooth, the pulp, can often cause much pain. If they begin to complain of discomfort in a particular tooth, do not wait to seek help. Dr. B can determine if pulp therapy is necessary. If so, we can work to remove the infected portion of the tooth, fill it with a biocompatible solution, and affix a custom dental crown on top to allow for proper use going forward and continued strengthening over time.
