CHILDREN’S DENTAL CLEANINGS
Our office and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend that your child visit the dentist by his/her 1st birthday. Regular cleanings are critical to your child’s overall oral health. We perform regular check-ups, cleanings, and oral health evaluations in our East Lake Children’s dental office.
LOW-DOSE DIGITAL DENTAL XRAYS
Dental X-rays or radiographs are very important. We use digital X-rays, which use 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays, to provide an instantaneous image to diagnose hidden problems that are not evident otherwise quickly. We also utilize “panoramic” X-rays, which provide a full view of the oral cavity to examine your child’s overall development.
We utilize more esthetic, tooth-like materials (composite resin) that are safe, predictable, and will bond to the tooth structure. They look and react more like natural teeth.
Fluoride is safe and effective in reducing the risk of cavities and reversing enamel demineralization (the first step in cavity formation).
Placing dental sealants is a safe and effective procedure that aids in preventing pit and groove cavities on certain high-risk teeth. They are a tooth-colored resin material that is “painted” onto the tooth surface and bonded to the enamel. Sealants are not permanent but will be checked regularly. Remember, sealants DO NOT help in preventing cavities in between teeth. Therefore, flossing is still necessary.
