Dental work can seem scary to children, but at our Family First Dental clinic in Richland, WA, our team is trained to carry out all specialized dentistry treatments we offer adults on children. We know the importance of taking care of your child’s first teeth, so they understand good oral hygiene for life. This means our dentists can make your child’s visit to the dentist a relaxed and enjoyable one.
Regular dental cleanings are a standard dental treatment that can help prevent the buildup of tartar or plaque on the teeth, leaving you with a sparkling clean smile. Our dentists will begin by examining your child’s teeth, scraping off any excess plaque build-up and using a sonic dental tool to carefully clean around each tooth. This quick and painless treatment will leave your child’s teeth looking clean and healthy. We recommend your child visits us every six months so we can set their dental care on the right path.
Dental sealants are commonly used to prevent cavities forming by coating the tooth with a protective resin film, filling any crevices where bacteria and plaque can lie. This is an excellent option for those kids who have trouble brushing their back molars. This is a completely safe option for children and a great way to ensure your children’s teeth will be protected from plaque for many years to come. Book an appointment with your Family First Dental team and we can advise you if sealants are the right choice for your child.
You may already be familiar with fluoride as it can be found in a number of toothpastes, dental products and even our drinking water. Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen and protect teeth from decay. Our fluoride treatment for children is a quick and easy treatment that involves carefully applying the fluoride in a gel or foam form to each tooth. The fluoride is left to harden and can be brushed off after 4 – 12 hours. Fluoride treatment could be the perfect solution to help you protect your child’s teeth, book an appointment today and find out more about this treatment!
