Studies show that each year children across the United States lose 51 school hours due to dental disease. At Smile Envy, we focus on preventive care to help your child spend less time in the dentist’s chair and more time learning and having fun. By bringing your child in for periodic checkups with our Grove City children’s dentist, we can help prevent setbacks during the school year and keep your child’s smile healthy and beautiful from the start.
Our Grove City children’s dentist strives to make every checkup visit a positive learning experience for your child. Our goal is to provide your child with effective tools to establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. During your child’s first checkup visit, we’ll discuss how to clean and care for their newly emerging teeth, how to handle the discomfort of teething and the prevention of baby bottle tooth decay. As your child gets older, we will teach them more about the importance and responsibility of maintaining excellent oral hygiene. Due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially susceptible to developing cavities. In fact, studies show that 50% of children ages 2-12 have had a cavity, with that number increasing to 78% among 17 year olds. For this reason we provide periodic fluoride treatments, which help strengthen tooth enamel and protect against cavities. Once your child’s permanent molars erupt, we also recommend the placement of dental sealants, which are protective coatings applied to the biting surfaces of the back teeth to seal out plaque and food debris. At Smile Envy, we monitor your children’s dental and facial development as they grow to make sure that their smiles are realizing their full potentials. If we detect any signs of conditions affecting their oral health, we’ll provide the prompt, gentle, and effective care they require.
At Smile Envy, we provide personalized, compassionate care for patients of all ages. Our Grove City children’s dentist makes checkups easy and stress-free for you and your child. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
