Charles Town, WV Dentist
With regular check-ups and cleanings, we can ensure healthy and happy smiles. It is recommended for all patients to schedule a routine six-month check-up exam. Our team will screen your child’s mouth for tooth decay 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 molars. Molars are the most susceptible to cavities and least benefitted by topical fluoride. Sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and are highly effective in preventing tooth decay. Fluoride may be applied to the teeth as well. Topical fluoride is used to strengthen enamel and make teeth more resistant to tooth decay.
Without proper dental care, children are susceptible to oral 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.
Each child will react differently with the dentist based on their age, experiences and developmental levels. Our hope is that we can provide dental care under the most stress-free environment. In the instance that your child is more comfortable with a pediatric dentist, we may refer you and your child to a specialist.
