Do you know that oral hygiene does not only involve teeth brushing and flossing? Your child needs to see a dental specialist every six months.

Dental Cleaning

Everyone requires professional dental cleaning for their oral well-being. Just like adults, children require oral care even though their teeth will eventually fall out. While you can clean their teeth by flossing or using an electric toothbrush, professional dental cleaning performs the job better. During professional routine dental cleaning, a pediatric dentist removes plaque and tartar to keep the mouth clean and prevent oral issues.

Fluoride Treatments

When there is a weakening in the mineral composition of the enamel, cavities will likely form. If left untreated, cavities can progress and cause tooth loss. Luckily, you can remineralize teeth through fluoride treatments. It is good to understand that too much fluoride can cause fluorosis, a condition that causes white or brown patches on the tooth, but too little fluoride leaves the teeth vulnerable to cavities. In this case, you should consult a professional before using a fluoride treatment.


Mouths develop and change rapidly in children. Unfortunately, some mouth features may fail to grow correctly. That is why X-rays are vital in pediatric dentistry. They allow the professional to view the structures that are not visible to the naked eye.

Dental Sealants

The chewing surfaces of the back teeth have pits and grooves, making them susceptible to decay. Luckily, dental sealants work by sealing the cracks and grooves to prevent tooth decay. After the application of dental sealants, a pediatric dentist will advise you on how to prevent damage and prolong its life. Do you want to improve the oral health of your child?
