Whether they need a checkup or something more involved, we’re ready to provide it in the most effective and comfortable way possible, so contact us today to schedule an appointment for children's dentistry in Reno, NV.
Children’s Checkups & Teeth Cleanings
Checkups and cleanings at Village Dental are a little different compared to those we provide for adults. Initially, our main goal is to help a child feel comfortable in our dental office, so their first visit or two might just consist of a quick exam. Once they feel more at home, cleanings will be added to the routine. Along the way, our team will teach your child the basics of oral hygiene, and we’ll also be happy to answer any questions you might have about their dental development.
As a parent, you always appreciate giving your child some extra protection, right? For a child’s most vulnerable teeth (the molars in the back), we can cover them with a thin layer of dental plastic, essentially sealing them off from bacteria, food particles, and plaque that could lead to decay. These essentially provide an invisible shield that offers round-the-clock cavity protection for up to 10 years.
Fluoride is important for people at any age, as it is a proven way to prevent cavities, but regular exposure is especially important for children. In addition to fortifying the enamel, fluoride also helps with the development of the adult teeth, even before they come in! That’s why, in addition to using a fluoridated toothpaste at home, we recommend that every child get a dedicated fluoride treatment twice a year, which we can conveniently provide as part of their routine cleanings.
