To protect your little one’s smile, you need an experienced dentist – such as Dr. Le – with the patience to help them feel at ease and the expertise to meet their ever-changing dental needs.

Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings for Kids

Just like adults, children need regular dental checkups and cleanings. Normally, these visits take place every six months, but your little one may need to start coming in more frequently depending on the state of their oral health. As they grow up, we can advise you on how much toothpaste they should use, what to do about poor oral habits such as thumb-sucking, and other issues that might come up as their mouth grows and develops.

Dental Sealants

Your child’s permanent molars and premolars are among the teeth that are most likely to develop cavities. This is largely due to them having numerous crevices where bacteria and debris can become trapped; many children simply can’t brush efficiently or effectively enough to keep these areas clean. A thin plastic coating called a dental sealant can be painted onto these at-risk teeth to help keep them safe during your little one’s cavity-prone years (generally between 6 and 14).

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Sadly, it’s all too common for children to develop at least one cavity before adulthood. These small holes can be sealed with a filling, which will also prevent the decay from spreading any further. But instead of a metal filling that might make them self-conscious about smiling for their yearbook photos, we can give your child a composite filling that blends right in with the rest of their grin. It also allows us to keep more of the tooth’s natural structure intact.

Athletic Mouthguards

It doesn’t matter what sport they’re playing; you should never let your child walk out onto the field without a mouthguard. Instead of getting one from the store, however, you can ask Dr. Le to provide one based on impressions taken of your child’s teeth. Such a precisely fitted appliance will be far more comfortable for your child to wear (and thus help to ensure that they won’t “forget” to put it in), and it will provide much better protection for their teeth and gums.
