Dental Checkups & Cleanings
for Kids

Preventive dental care is just as important for children as it is for adults. In fact, it is arguably even more important; keeping the mouth healthy helps ensure that there aren’t any unforeseen complications in your child’s oral development. During your child’s regular checkups and cleanings, we’ll take the time to teach them more about the best ways to brush, floss, and generally take care of their smiles. Also, we’ll keep you informed about any new developments in their mouth that could require attention.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are meant to help keep the molars safe while your child is still learning how to brush properly. It’s very easy for bacteria and food debris to settle in the crevices on the chewing surfaces of the molars, putting these teeth at risk for cavities. Dental sealants are thin layers of plastic that close off the crevices, protecting them from harmful substances and making it easier for your child to take care of them even while they’re still learning about the best brushing techniques.

Fluoride Treatments

You’ve probably heard about fluoride being added to tap water to promote oral health. Fluoride helps build strong teeth that are resistant to decay, and it helps fight the bacteria that cause cavities in the first place. Growing teeth can benefit greatly from a professional fluoride treatment, which involves applying fluoride in a highly concentrated form directly to the teeth so that it can be absorbed into the enamel. This process only takes a few minutes and can easily be done during a routine appointment.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth decay is a very common childhood disease, so it’s not unusual for little ones to need a filling or two. We generally recommend tooth-colored fillings over metal fillings since they’re more conservative; more of your child’s natural tooth structure will be saved with a tooth-colored restoration. Also, a filling that blends in with the natural tooth looks a lot more natural, meaning your child is less likely to be teased by their peers for their dental work.

Athletic Mouthguards

For patients who are involved in sports, we recommend custom made Sports Mouth Guards. These are plastic individually made appliances that fit precisely in your mouth. They protect not only your teeth, but also your jaw and mouth, lips, and tongue. Wearing an athletic mouthpiece prevents tooth loss and tooth fracture, dislocation, and fracture of the jaw, tearing and bruising of soft tissues of your face, as well as your existing dental work. Do not take a chance. Please schedule an appointment and in less than an hour you will have protection for your teeth and peace of mind for years to come.

Special Needs Dentistry

Children with special needs typically require much more attention in terms of dental care, as depending on their situation they could be more susceptible in general to gum disease or a number of other dental problems. Dr. Yana will treat your little one with patience and understanding, and she can adjust her approach according to what’s needed to keep your child’s smile healthy while also assuring that they remain comfortable.

Pulp Therapy

Pulp is found at the center of every tooth and is a combination of tissues, nerves, and blood vessels that work to keep the tooth healthy throughout its lifetimes. However, damaged or infected pulp can cause chronic pain, and the issue needs to be treated before it starts to spread. During pulp therapy, we open your child’s tooth and take out either part of the pulp or the entire pulp depending on the extent of the issue.
