At Holmes Dental, we understand the importance of preventive care for children’s dental health. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential to prevent dental problems. We emphasize oral hygiene education, teaching proper brushing and flossing techniques to maintain optimal oral health. We also highlight the significance of a healthy diet and nutrition in promoting strong and healthy teeth. Our dental sealants provide an added layer of protection, shielding your child’s teeth from decay.
Dental Exams & Cleanings
Our dental exams and cleanings for children are thorough yet gentle. We conduct dental exams to detect any dental issues at an early stage, ensuring timely intervention. Professional teeth cleaning is essential to remove plaque and tartar buildup, promoting healthy gums and teeth. Our dental team understands the importance of making the experience comfortable and fun for children, fostering a positive attitude towards dental visits.
Dental X-rays play a crucial role in pediatric dentistry. They help us diagnose dental problems accurately, even those not visible to the naked eye. We use low-radiation digital X-rays to minimize your child’s exposure. Rest assured, we take necessary precautions to protect your child during X-ray procedures, including the use of lead aprons and collars.
Fluoride treatment is highly beneficial for children’s dental health. Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay and strengthens tooth enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks. Our fluoride treatments come in various forms, including topical fluoride application or fluoride varnish. These treatments are safe and effective, providing added protection for your child’s teeth.
Space maintainers are crucial in preserving the space for permanent teeth to erupt properly. We understand the importance of maintaining proper dental alignment and bite development. Our dental team provides different types of space maintainers, such as removable or fixed appliances, tailored to meet your child’s specific needs. Rest assured, we are dedicated to helping your child achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
In some cases, tooth extractions may be necessary for children. Common reasons include severe decay, overcrowding, or to facilitate orthodontic treatment. Our dental team ensures that the tooth extraction procedure is comfortable and safe for your child. We use gentle techniques and provide appropriate anesthesia to minimize any discomfort.
Dental emergencies can occur at any time, and we are here to help. Our experienced dental team is available to handle dental emergencies promptly and effectively.
