Kid-Friendly Checkups and Cleanings

At Old Greenwich Dental Center, we know that prevention is key when it comes to your child’s dental health. When you bring your child for a checkup and cleaning, we use the latest technology to thoroughly clean their teeth, removing any buildup of plaque and tartar. Not only does cleaning leave their teeth feeling fresh and looking great, but it also helps to prevent the buildup of harmful bacteria that can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, or early extraction.

We recommend that children visit our kids’ dentist for a cleaning and checkup at least twice a year, starting from the age of one. These regular visits are essential to maintain their oral health and ensure that any potential issues are caught early. That way, their visits are quick and simple for a positive view of dental care into adulthood.

Boost Young Smiles with Fluoride Treatments

In pediatric dentistry, fluoride treatments are a go-to for many dentists, and for good reason! Fluoride treatments are an effective and minimally invasive way to improve your child’s dental health. For growing smiles at our practice, we recommend fluoride treatments as a preventative measure against tooth decay. Fluoride is a mineral that helps strengthen tooth enamel and can even reverse the early stages of tooth decay. It’s a quick and painless treatment that can be done in-office during your child’s regular checkup.

Shield Against Bacteria with Dental Sealants

Getting kids to take care of their teeth can be tough, but our pediatric dentistry team has a secret weapon: dental sealants. These thin, plastic coatings are painted onto the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars, forming a barrier that keeps bacteria at bay. Not only are they an effective way to prevent cavities in kids, but they’re also quick and painless to apply. In fact, the procedure is so easy, it can be done right after a routine cleaning. Best of all, dental sealants last for years, so parents can rest easy knowing their child’s smile is protected.
