Can you believe it is already June? This means that we are six months into your child’s twice-yearly dental cleanings! Summer is also a great time to get your child’s dental cleaning out of the way so you don’t have to worry about using any school days to get their teeth taken care of and fix any developing problems before school starts again.
To make sure your child has a healthy smile all year round, they need to brush and floss every day, limit the number of sugary drinks and foods they consume and have routine dental cleanings to remove hardened plaque (tartar) with special instruments, check for cavities or other problems while they are still small and easily (and least costly) treated, as well as get fluoride treatment and dental sealants as needed.
Our Sugarbug Dental team uses special tools and instruments created just for small mouths. We are excited to work with your child, preteen or teenager to help them feel comfortable, relaxed and safe so they enjoy their time in the dental chair. We take dental X-rays to spot problems early, get rid of plaque and tartar, floss between teeth and around the gum line and then polish those pearly whites to a smooth finish. If the dental exam or X-rays show problems happening, we will offer treatment to take care of those before they worsen. For teeth that have a lot of plaque on them such as the molars, sealants are recommended to protect those back teeth that are hardest to reach and clean. A fluoride treatment may be recommended to help prevent cavities overall.
When it comes to your child’s smile, our team of hygienists and dentists are specially trained to take good care of their oral health so they have the best possible outcome as their permanent teeth come in. Your child’s happy, healthy smile is our goal! Call us at one of our locations nearest you.
