Teeth for Life

 

Practicing good oral hygiene means maintaining your child's smile by visiting Little Pearls Dentistry regularly and taking care of her teeth and gums in between checkups. Our practice wants to make sure that your child gets the most out of her office visits, and that her teeth stay healthy for life! We'll work with you to provide complete dental care, and show you how to maintain your child's smile at home with the right dental products for you and your family.

Dental Cleanings and Regular Checkups

Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining good oral health. During regular checkups, we will:

  • Check for any problems that may not be seen or felt
  • Look for signs of tooth decay
  • Inspect the teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
  • Provide a thorough teeth cleaning, rinse, and polish

Visiting us every six months gives you and your child the chance to talk with us and receive answers for any questions you may have about your child's oral health. Checkups are also a great way to find out about new treatments that may benefit your child's dental health.

Choosing the Right Toothpaste and Toothbrush

The right toothpaste and toothbrush will vary from child to child. We have recomendations and would be happy to share these at your child's appointment!
