Studies have shown that children with good oral health tend to eat better, learn better, do better in school, and develop higher confidence.
During your child's preventative visit, we use special tools to get those pearly whites glowing bright! Your child will be evaluated to make sure both his/her gums and teeth are healthy, and ensure no oral disease is present. Growth and development will be evaluated and any potential concerns discussed.
Teeth are composed of many tiny pieces called molecules that attach to each other. Throughout the day these tiny pieces are constantly breaking apart and reforming depending on our diet. Fluoride can be thought of as a glue for these pieces by keeping the molecules more tightly bound together and less prone to breaking apart. Topical fluoride treatment is effective in protecting children's teeth and reducing cavities.
Think of the top (chewing) surface of a tooth as mountains with many grooves. When your child eats, food gets caught into those grooves. Although daily brushing is essential, applying dental sealant will enhance the ability to keep those hard to reach areas clean. A dental sealant flows into the grooves sealing the tooth and reducing the probability of cavities.
Radiographs are an essential part of our diagnostic protocol. Without radiographs certain dental conditions may go undetected.
Dental radiographs detect much more than dental cavities. Radiographs allow the dentist to evaluate growth and development, bone health, pathology, and evaluate trauma.
At Izzy's Kidz Dentistry we understand radiograph concerns. As a parent, you can rest assured that we are using the latest dental X-ray technology with very minimal exposure.
