It is important to establish good dental care and oral hygiene habits early. Dentist A. Adomene loves seeing patients of all ages, including children, and she is happy to provide children’s dentistry.
We will make sure that your child’s growing smile is healthy and strong while educating them about the importance of good oral hygiene. In case children require orthodontic treatment, dentist A. Adomene would consult and refer to orthodontic specialist. Also during one of your child’s checkups and cleanings, we may suggest one of these preventive kid’s treatments:
- Fluoride. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel and protect your little one’s teeth from decay. If we notice that your child’s enamel isn’t quite as strong as it should be, we may recommend fluoride treatment to keep cavities away. The procedure takes only a few minutes and is completely pain-free.
- Dental Sealants. For children who are at a higher risk of cavity development or who have a sweet tooth, we may recommend dental sealants. These are small shields that harden over your child’s molars to prevent sugars and carbohydrates from settling on them and attracting harmful oral bacteria. The procedure only takes a few minutes, and the sealants can last for years with the proper care.
