Preventive Care

Young children and adolescent should have preventive dental care regularly to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Our office offers a wide range of preventive care including dental exams, cleaning of the teeth, x-rays and fluoride treatments.

Fluoride treatment

It is our principle to customize fluoride supplements and in-office applications based on the specific caries and cavity risk factors of a child. It could be that the risk is high, moderate or low. Thus, we create a preventive care plan correspondingly.

Sealants

Our office performs dental sealants to prevent tooth decay. This involves applying thick plastic coatings on the chewing surfaces of the back of the teeth to keep germs and food debris from slipping into the grooves. It is most recommendable to apply sealants as soon as the teeth erupted to stop decay.
