With regular check-ups and cleanings we can help promote healthy and happy smiles. It is recommended for all patients to schedule a routine six-month check-up exam. We will screen your child’s mouth for tooth decay, proper tooth alignment, 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.

We may also recommend dental sealants for your child. Sealants protect against tooth decay and cavities on your child’s back teeth. Dental sealants act as a barrier to prevent cavities. The sealant material bonds into the depressions and grooves of the chewing surfaces of back teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier, protecting enamel from plaque and acids.

Fluoride may be applied to the teeth as well. Topical fluoride is used to strengthen enamel and make teeth more resistant to tooth decay.

Healthy smiles should not stop at our dental office. Our team will educate you and your child on how to make good food choices and how to properly brush and floss at home.

Academy Dental Care has the experience and gentleness to care for your child’s teeth throughout various stages of childhood. Contact our office today!
