Besides improving your child’s general well-being, they can also help boost their self-esteem by keeping their million-dollar smile. Some of our services include:
Dental x-rays help us visualize your child’s teeth, gums, and other oral tissues. These images can help us gauge the extent of their dental condition. They are especially helpful in hard-to-see places, where cavities usually start forming. They also help us provide better dental management plans.
Dr. Rebecca Petersen, our skilled dentist in St. Paul, MN, recommends having dental exams at least twice per year. Regular dental visits can help maintain your child’s oral health, prevent the development of oral conditions, and halt the progression of existing problems. Frequency may vary depending on their condition.
We can also perform professional cleaning during your child’s appointment. We can perform root planing and teeth scaling to ensure every nook and crook of their teeth gets cleaned. This way, we can prevent plaque-causing bacteria from building up.
To strengthen your child’s teeth, we can also provide fluoride treatment. This substance can reinforce the layers of their teeth, which helps in preventing tooth decay. We may recommend using fluoride toothpaste when they turn 2 years old.
We can also apply sealants on your child’s teeth. These plastic coatings act as barriers to protect their dental enamel. They can reduce acid-induced breakdown of the teeth and are usually placed on your premolars and molars, which are primarily used for chewing.
Aside from offering dental services, we also accept the major dental insurance plans in St. Paul, MN, and at all of our locations, for you and your child’s convenience. Call us today at (612) 638-1234, so we can start maintaining your child’s oral health. You can also fill out our form to request an appointment.
