Children’s Dental Checkups & Cleanings
We provide routine dental checkups and cleanings for children to prevent and detect oral health issues while they are still small. Children tend to be susceptible to problems like cavities and decay, which we can catch before they turn into more extensive and expensive procedures down the road.
These appointments also help to educate and familiarize your children with Dr. Jones or Dr. Franzese. The more positive dental experiences that your little ones have early on in their lives, the more likely they will be to continue practicing positive oral healthcare as they grow older.
Lastly, these biannual appointments are important because they provide your children with a thorough cleaning. Kids simply can’t take care of their teeth and gums as well as adults, which is why our dental hygienists provide thorough cleanings to remove plaque and tartar that couldn’t be reached at home. This is also a great opportunity for you to ask about any tips or tricks for better at-home oral healthcare for your kids. Our dental hygienists are knowledgeable and ready to help!
Dental sealants are a safe and effective way that we can help your kids prevent cavities from occurring in the first place. They are applied to the surfaces of back molars—where cavities usually form. These molars are the main chewing surfaces that your kids use, which is why they are susceptible to decay. Your family dentist in Ridgefield paints a thin plastic resin onto the tooth surfaces, protecting the molars’ pits and fissures against bacteria and food particles. Dental sealants bond to the enamel and will last for years.
Fluoride supplements can be applied during children's dentistry checkups and offers extra fluoride protection between visits. The supplement, a gel or foam, is added to a comfortable mouth tray. Your child only has to wear it for a few minutes for it to take full effect. See for yourself how simple our children's dentistry solutions are! Let us take care of your kids’ smiles to give them the wonderful oral health that they deserve.
