Preventive Services

Our practice philosophy is “prevention is better than cure”. As a specialists in pediatric dentistry we are like the pediatricians for your child’s oral health. At every preventive visit you can expect the following services : cleaning of teeth, application of fluoride varnish to prevent tooth decay, monitoring tooth eruption – if your child has crooked, missing or sometimes extra teeth or delayed eruption of teeth. Monitoring growth and development of jaws, and referral to appropriate specialists if needed. Discussion regarding sport safety – mouth guards for sports. Teaching your child how to care for their teeth – brushing, flossing techniques, and finally motivating them to keep up the good work by rewarding them with prizes, and induction in to the “Cavity Free Club”.
