Dentistry For Children
At Highland Family Dental Care, we provide dentistry for all ages, including children. We understand the importance of creating a positive experience with your child’s visit. Quality dental care is important in your child’s health and development. We care about all of our patients especially the little angles.
Early detection of dental problems is essential to maintain good oral health. It is recommended for all patients to schedule a routine six-month check-up and exam starting at age one. Our talented team can provide a variety of dental solutions for children of all ages.
Below are some of the pediatric dentistry services we offer for your child.
Dental Exams and Cleanings
We will screen your child’s mouth for tooth decay and gum disease. Regular professional dental cleanings are essential for a healthy mouth. During your child’s dental cleaning, we will gently remove any buildup of plaque or tartar then complete it with a polishing.
Topical fluoride application is advised so that your child’s teeth become stronger and enamel becomes more resistant to tooth decay.
Sealants protect against tooth decay and cavities on your child’s molars and premolars. Molars and premolars are the most susceptible to cavities due to anatomized grooves. Sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and are highly effective in preventing tooth decay.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s dental care, don’t hesitate to contact us at our Highland dental office.
