What is Preventative Dentistry?
Preventative dentistry encompasses a wide range of essential dental services aimed at promoting and maintaining optimal oral health for patients of all ages. At Kirkland Kids Dentistry, our preventative dentistry services go beyond routine check-ups and cleanings. We provide comprehensive care that includes preventive treatments and patient education. From dental exams and x-rays, to sealants and fluoride treatments, our experienced team is dedicated to addressing the unique dental needs of each child. We prioritize early detection and prevention of dental issues, ensuring that your child’s smile stays healthy, beautiful, and bright. With our focus on patient comfort, education, and personalized care, you can trust us to be your partner in nurturing lifelong dental habits and promoting a lifetime of optimal oral health.
Fluoride treatment is a valuable component of our comprehensive general dentistry services at Kirkland Kids Dentistry. It is a simple and effective preventive measure aimed at strengthening and protecting your child’s teeth against cavities and decay. During a fluoride treatment, a concentrated fluoride solution is applied to your child’s teeth in the form of a varnish. The fluoride works by remineralizing the enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria and acids in the mouth. This helps to prevent tooth decay and keeps your child’s teeth strong and healthy. Our experienced dental team will ensure that the fluoride treatment is applied safely and comfortably, providing an added layer of protection for your child’s smile.
Dental sealants are another valuable preventive treatment that we offer as part of our comprehensive pediatric dentistry services. Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of your child’s back teeth. These teeth often have deep grooves and fissures that can trap food particles and bacteria, increasing the risk of decay.
During the dental sealant application process, a safe and BPA-free resin material is carefully painted onto the tooth surface, forming a protective shield. This shield acts as a barrier, sealing off the grooves and creating a smooth, easy-to-clean surface. By filling in the deep pits and fissures, dental sealants make it more difficult for plaque and bacteria to accumulate, reducing the risk of cavities.
Dental sealants are especially beneficial for children who may have difficulty maintaining proper oral hygiene in hard-to-reach areas of their mouth. The procedure is painless, quick, and non-invasive, making it an excellent preventive measure for protecting your child’s teeth. Our experienced dental team will evaluate your child’s dental health and determine if dental sealants are appropriate for their specific needs.
