Checkups and Cleanings
Regular checkups and cleanings are imperative for your children. At checkups, we enjoy teaching children proper brushing and flossing techniques to use at home so that they will have a healthy foundation of oral health. Establishing good oral care habits early will give your child the best possible chances of keeping his or her teeth for life. Regular checkups also help us spot any newly developing problems early enough that conservative, minimally-invasive measures can be taken to correct them. We can also spot issues with tooth eruption or jaw development at stages in which they can be more easily corrected.
Fluoride and Sealants
While good oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings will decrease the likelihood of cavities, some children are simply more prone to developing tooth decay. For this reason, Dr. Sand Wall offers a professional fluoride treatment for children in the form of a varnish applied to the teeth. For even more protection for the vulnerable molars that collect plaque and food debris, your northern Kentucky dentist can also apply dental sealants, which are thin plastic coatings placed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.
