Benefits of Preventative Dentistry for Young Children

As with most things, it’s best to prevent a problem rather than solve it. Pediatric preventative dentistry aims to minimize the risk of cavities, fight gum disease, and freshen kids’ breath.

Expect Caring and Compassionate Care

Clover Hills Dentistry is committed to providing young children with reliable, gentle, and effective pediatric dental care. Dr. Ochoa and his team know dental appointments can feel overwhelming for some kids, so we are sensitive to each child’s needs. Clover Hills Dentistry aims to provide the best preventative dental care services possible to keep smiles strong and healthy, including:

Dental Cleanings & Checkups

The American Dental Association (ADA) advises that children visit their dentist every six months for routine exams and cleanings to keep their teeth clean and gums healthy. Regular dental appointments are also an opportunity for Dr. Ochoa to devise individualized treatment plans and answer any questions you or your inquisitive kid might have.

Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF)

Does your young child have a cavity but struggle with the idea of sitting through drilling and filling? SDF is a drill-free, pain-free dentistry solution for minor tooth decay. With this topical solution, Dr. Ochoa can prevent cavities from growing larger.

Dental Sealants

If your child is over 6 years old and has molars (back teeth), ask Dr. Ochoa about dental sealants.

Back teeth can be hard to reach at this age with a toothbrush and floss. Consequently, this can pose a unique oral hygiene challenge for young children and increase the risk of tooth decay in the molars. 

Dental sealants protect the deep grooves in the back of the teeth so that it’s tougher for bacteria and food particles to seep into these deep grooves and trap them in the back of the mouth.

Space Maintainers

Even though children lose their baby teeth as their adult teeth emerge, they need intervention if they lose a tooth too early because of an accident or tooth decay. Space maintainers are orthodontic appliances that preserve the perfect amount of room for the emerging adult tooth and prevent other teeth from shifting into the space.
