It’s Not Just a Cleaning!
Prevention should serve as a lifestyle pattern for total health, not the least of which is dental health. Prevention in dentistry during the early years leads to improved long-term oral health and reduced dental costs in the future. It encourages a bright smile, fresh breath, and an overall good feeling for the child. Prevention is your insurance policy for a healthier pain-free lifestyle.
Children's Dental Care of Garland can provide excellent services to help your child maintain his or her dental health for a lifetime. Your cooperation can serve to maintain optimum dental health. When you bring your child to our office for regularly scheduled hygiene appointments the following benefits will result:
Our staff will customize a personal home – and preventive – care program for your child, and inform you of those dental products that are appropriate for his or her particular needs. You will be instructed in the proper methods of tooth brushing, flossing, and using adjunctive dental health products.
Your child’s teeth will be cleaned and polished to remove plaque and tartar both above and below the gum line, eliminating bacteria that lead to cavities, bad breath, and gum disease. Fluoride will also be applied to teeth to strengthen the enamel and reduce the risk of decay.
Sealants may also be recommended and can be applied to the chewing surfaces of children’s teeth to protect against future decay. This will be scheduled for a separate dental visit.
Home-care recommendations and instructions will be provided based on your child’s individual needs. The hygienist will provide you with information about what types of home care your child can manage independently based on his or her age and about the assistance that you will need to provide for your child.
Maintaining regular hygiene appointments with your pediatric dentist offer you the assurance that any problems regarding your child’s oral care will be addressed immediately.
