Here at Southern Maine Pediatric dentistry, we offer comprehensive preventative care to promote the optimal health of your child. Prevention begins with the first tooth.
Our professional cleanings will remove the buildup of plaque and tartar from the teeth, and the hard- to reach areas under the gums. . After cleaning, your child’s teeth will be polished so that they shine! Fluoride treatments are applied to help prevent tooth decay.
During your visit a though examination is completed by one of our doctors. This will help determine if your child has any issues that need to be addressed. We evaluate your child’s teeth, gum health, jaw positioning, and bite. Our goal is to catch problems early so that they can be dealt with before they become bigger ones. The findings from the exam are reviewed and discussed with parents so that an individualized prevention plan can be created for your child.
