Professional Dentistry for Children
For children, dental hygiene and care has a special importance. Making sure that their primary (baby) teeth remain healthy sets the tone for the health of their adult teeth later in life. Because primary teeth share different qualities than permanent ones, children need an experienced dentist, like Dr. Nielsen, who understands the nuances of children’s dentistry.
Children’s Dental Care Services
- Checkups and cleanings – During your child’s checkup and cleaning, Dr. Nielsen will take into account your child’s dental development to determine if corrective treatment is needed, such as orthodontics to straighten crooked teeth
- Dental sealants – Dental sealants are thin coats of safe acrylic that are painted onto the chewing surfaces of teeth. The sealants protect teeth against food particles and bacteria buildup, making your child less likely to develop cavities. The sealants are also biodegradable and will dissolve on their own so you won’t have to worry about removing them later.
- Fluoride treatments – The mineral, fluoride, is found abundantly in today’s dental hygiene products, and has been proven to strengthen tooth enamel against cavity development. A topical application of fluoride can also be administered in our office to help increase enamel strength.
