Why Are Early Dental Visits Important?

Parents should bring their children for their first dental visit once their baby teeth emerge, typically after they turn one. Children’s dentistry is an important way of building good oral health habits. Patients who visit the dentist as a child and continue visiting the dentist as they grow have happier, healthier smiles.

Before your child’s first visit, you can play pretend that you’re at the dentist with them and describe what happens when they visit. Getting children ready for the dentist makes the experience more enjoyable. Furthermore, when children visit our friendly dental team at an early age, they feel comfortable in our office. Early visits can prevent dental fear and anxiety. 

Fluoride and Sealants

We typically recommend fluoride treatment and dental sealants for children to prevent cavities. Children are prone to decay and cavities, especially in the back of the mouth, which can be difficult to clean. At routine visits, we can apply fluoride varnish to teeth. Patients need to avoid eating for several hours as fluoride penetrates the tooth enamel. 

Dental sealants are a protective coating we place on the molars. Sealants can work for years after application to protect molars from decay-causing bacteria. In addition, both sealants and fluoride strengthen the tooth enamel and prevent cavities. 

Family Dentistry For All Ages in Clarkston, MI

As we age, we can discover new dental problems or may have accidents that injure our smiles. Because of this, Clarkston Dental Care offers restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments for older patients. So whether you want to brighten your smile or need to replace a knocked-out tooth, we can help.

Our restorative treatments include dental implants and implant-secured restorations. Dental implants are small titanium screws that we place in the jaw bone. Implants create a stable foundation for single dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. In addition, implants can secure one or more replacement teeth for improved function and aesthetics.

Once patients restore their smiles, they may want to address discolored or injured teeth. Dental veneers and tooth bonding treatment can cover gaps, chips, cracks, and dull teeth. Tooth crowns fully cover broken or worn teeth. We also typically provide crowns for patients following a root canal.
