Studies show that each year children across the United States lose 51 school hours each year due to dental disease. Our kids dentist in 43123 focuses on a preventive approach to help your child spend less time in the dentist’s chair and more time in the classroom. As soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, usually by his or her first birthday, it’s time for a dental checkup. Our dentist gently and precisely examines your child’s teeth, gums and their supporting structures to monitor growth and development and to provide care to prevent dental disease and diagnose adverse conditions early on, when they are typically the easiest to treat. Although cavities can occur at any age, due to lifestyle and dietary habit children are especially susceptible.
Once your child’s permanent molars erupt, we recommend dental sealants, which are protective coatings painted on the surfaces of these vulnerable back teeth to seal out plaque and debris. Dental sealants are proven to reduce the risk of cavities in children by up to 80%. We also offer fluoride treatments, which involve the application of the mineral fluoride to the surfaces of teeth to prevent the erosion of tooth enamel by dental decay. As part of your child’s checkup, our dentist will also perform a thorough, professional teeth cleaning, to remove plaque and tartar from the most difficult to reach crevices of the mouth. A teeth cleaning is also an opportunity for us to guide your child on better techniques for brushing and flossing at home.
At Smile Envy, we believe that education is an important preventive tool, and strive to teach your child healthy habits. Our kids dentist in 43123 provides comprehensive preventive care and makes it easy to schedule dental checkups for the whole family at our convenient, state-of-the-art office in Grove City.
