The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends having your child’s teeth cleaned twice a year. Preventive dental exams, teeth cleaning, and topical fluoride treatment are important tools used to maintain good dental health.
Children’s teeth need extra strength against decay. One way that Dr. Stephen can encourage strong tooth enamel as your child grows and develops is with the use of fluoride treatments. This mineral helps your child’s smile become less susceptible to the effects of dental decay and the cavities that can result. Keep your child cavity-free with fluoride treatments.

While all children can benefit from dental exams, teeth cleaning, and fluoride treatments, dental sealants can help children that have permanent molars gain extra protection from decay and cavities. Sealants are one of the most effective procedures available for preventing tooth decay in the biting surfaces of permanent teeth. Sealants are recommended for your child’s permanent molars, and the application of these clear plastic coverings is simple and painless.
Dr. Stephen will take the time to teach your child proper oral hygiene routines during these preventive visits as well. One of the main problems facing your child’s smile is that he or she is just learning how to best care for his or her teeth. The more education your child receives at our office, the more likely he or she will be able to keep a healthy smile.
