Teeth cleanings and oral exams are some of the most important parts of preventive dentistry at our office. Your child will come in and see one of our team members for a cleaning and check up at least every six months. We’ll clean away plaque and tartar from your child’s teeth, then Dr. Alex will perform a comprehensive exam to make sure that their teeth, tongue, and gums are strong and healthy.
This oral exam also includes an essential head and neck cancer screening and any necessary x-rays that are needed to diagnose cavities or possible infections. The doctor will discuss her findings with you and let you know if your child might need any additional dental treatment, and all safe and reasonable options to do so.
If your child plays sports, a customized sports mouthguard is essential for protecting their oral health. We can create a cushioned, custom-fitted guard that will protect their teeth. Athletes are 60x more likely to experience dental trauma (especially on their front teeth!) when not wearing a mouth guard, so protect your child’s dental health at Kids Tooth Team!
Dental sealants are an ideal method for preventing cavities. Our team will apply a thin layer of plastic resin to your child’s tooth after it’s cleaned, then harden this resin with a UV light. The transparent plastic creates a strong barrier that prevents contact with oral bacteria and acid. If maintained and taken care of, a sealant can prevent cavity formation for up to 10 years!
