Preventative Dentistry

Importance of Preventative Dentistry

At Wilmington Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that establishing good oral health habits early in life is crucial for your child’s overall well-being. Preventative dentistry plays a pivotal role in maintaining healthy smiles and preventing dental issues down the road. By emphasizing preventive measures, we can protect your child’s teeth from cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems. Our team is dedicated to educating parents and children about the significance of preventive care and fostering a positive dental experience for your little ones.

Key Preventative Dental Services for Children

  1. Dental Cleanings and Examinations: Regular dental checkups are essential for your child’s oral health. During these visits, our experienced pediatric dentists will carefully examine their teeth, gums, and oral structures. We’ll also perform professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to cavities and gum disease.

  2. Dental Sealants: Dental sealants are a simple and effective way to protect your child’s molars and premolars from decay. We apply a thin, plastic coating to the chewing surfaces of these teeth, creating a barrier against bacteria and food particles that can cause cavities.

  3. Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks. Our fluoride treatments help fortify your child’s teeth, reducing the risk of tooth decay and promoting overall oral health.

  4. Oral Health Education: At Wilmington Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that knowledge is power. Our team takes the time to educate both parents and children about proper oral hygiene techniques, including brushing, flossing, and a balanced diet. We aim to instill good dental habits that will last a lifetime.
