Preventive treatments are important for children because they help reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease. In addition, it is also beneficial for teaching your child good oral hygiene habits. Preventive treatments are considered an important part of a child’s oral health.
Fluoride treatments are great for strengthening teeth and preventing tooth decay. During a fluoride treatment, a dentIST will apply fluoride to your child’s teeth using a special fluoride varnish or gel. Fluoride binds to the minerals in teeth, helping to build enamel and prevent tooth decay.

A preventive sealant is a plastic material that the dentist can apply. The sealant will bond to the chewing surface of your child’s teeth and protect them from decay.
A complete dental examination is initiated at the dental practice where the dentist uses a small concave mirror to receive a better view of the child's mouth. They may also take X-rays of the mouth to have a complete view of the mouth. This process helps to detect any decay or cavity on the teeth, helping the dentist to initiate the treatment at the earliest.
Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar from your child’s teeth. This will keep your child’s mouth healthy and prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Children should get their teeth cleaned every six months. We may also recommend more frequent cleanings if your little one is prone to tooth decay.
Some children may have misaligned teeth which can cause several dental problems. Visiting the dentist at the earliest helps to tale preventive measures that help to avoid further dental complications.
