Cleanings & Preventions
Teeth Cleaning and Prevention
The most important services that we provide for our pediatric patients are those that help them prevent tooth decay and encourage proper tooth development. At Prime Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics, we do this providing a comprehensive menu of preventive services like:
Teeth Cleanings and Dental Exams
Every six months, our children’s dentist examines your child’s smile for signs of disease and cavities, as well as monitors their oral development. Then, one of our hygienists will clean your child’s teeth and work with them to establish healthy habits that keep cavities at bay.
Low radiation digital x-rays allow us to assess things like:
Development of adult teeth
Growth of the jaw and other surrounding anatomy
Tooth decay, abscesses, cysts, and other pathology
Topical Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride helps developing teeth become harder and more resistant to decay. Although there is a small amount of fluoride in toothpastes, we apply a stronger concentration directly onto your child’s teeth for optimum protection.
Protective Sealants for Permanent Teeth
Newly erupted molars are more susceptible to tooth decay because of how difficult the deep grooves are to keep clean. Thankfully, we can apply a thin plastic coating to act as a sealant that blocks out cavity-causing bacteria. The process takes just a few minutes, and no shots or drilling are required!
Sports Mouth Guards
A custom fitted athletic guard can protect your child from emergencies like broken teeth, lip lacerations, or concussions during their extracurricular activities. Plus, it will stay comfortably in place when they talk or rehydrate – unlike “one size” guards bought at the supermarket.
If your child needs a filling or braces, our Bonita Springs dentist has everything conveniently located right here in our office. We even provide a range of sedation dentistry options to put your child’s mind at ease. Need a 2nd opinion? Call today for a complimentary consultation.
