Children’s Dentistry Belmont WA
Are you aware of your child’s oral health?
Accurate monitoring and planning during the childhood years are essential. In children, preventive dentistry is very important.
Early exams and cleaning can ensure a lifetime of dental health. After getting your kid’s teeth cleaned, reinforcing the dentist’s work with fluoride can help make the teeth more resistant to decay.
Fissure sealants are another preventive measure, which may benefit your child.
As children’s permanent molars erupt between the ages of six and twelve, dental sealants are applied to the surfaces to prevent decay from happening in the grooves found in these back teeth.
As they continue to grow, they may need to undergo orthodontic work (braces), where they wear brackets and wires surrounding most of the teeth to prevent misalignment as the jaw matures into adulthood.
At Epsom Dental Care, we provide comfortable dental care and environment for your child.
