As your 85304 pediatric dentist, we believe it’s never too early for your child to begin establishing excellent oral hygiene habits. As soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, usually by the age of one, we recommend coming in for a comprehensive checkup. Our dentist will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, tracking their growth and development, and looking for the earliest signs of any adverse conditions. Due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially prone to developing tooth decay. Once your child’s permanent molars come in, we recommend dental sealants, which are protective coatings painted on the biting surfaces of the vulnerable back teeth to seal out plaque and food debris. We also offer periodic fluoride treatments, which involve the application of the mineral fluoride to prevent the erosion of tooth enamel. As part of your child’s checkup our dentist also provides a thorough, professional teeth cleaning to remove plaque buildup from difficult to reach spots. A teeth cleaning is also an opportunity for us to guide your child on better techniques for brushing and flossing at home.
At Healthy Teeth Family Dentistry, your child’s oral health is our top priority. Our 85304 pediatric dentist is committed to helping your child enjoy a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles. To schedule your child’s checkup or to learn more about our services, call today.
