At Smiles 4 Life Pediatric Dentistry, we want your child to have a good head start when it comes to dental care. We are devoted to ensuring that our patients have excellent oral health. Preventative dentistry starts early and continues throughout your child’s development.
Preventative dental care includes the following:
- Bringing your child in twice a year for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We can check for problem areas and begin treatment right away.
- Digital imaging and x-rays that can help us properly diagnose issues like cavities and tooth root infection.
- Educating our patients about proper dental hygiene, and encouraging patients to brush twice a day and floss at least once per day.
- Thorough exams that include screening for oral cancers and other dental issues.
Your child deserves a healthy start, which is why we provide quality pediatric dental care for patients in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area.
Why Does Preventative Dentistry Matter?
As children grow, their bodies change and develop at an incredibly fast rate. Over the years, your child’s baby teeth are replaced by adult teeth. The shape of the jaw and cheekbones also change with your child’s growth.
On occasion, certain dental problems can happen during development, which is why routine care is important. We work together with you and your child to make sure everything is working right when it comes to your child’s teeth.
Partnering With the Parent
Parents are one of our most important partners in dental care! Encourage your child to brush and floss regularly and to eat foods that help maintain a healthy mouth. Early care can prevent problems that might be worse down the road, causing a lot of pain and costing a lot of money.
