We have finally reached August with its notorious heat and humidity. Even though summer is still in full swing, the back-to-school season is just around the corner. You’re certain to be busy buying new clothes, shoes, and school supplies for the kiddos.
However, don’t forget their smiles! Don’t send your child back to school without scheduling their fall dental cleaning and exam. These checkups are important for keeping their mouths healthy and their smiles bright.
If you have any questions about checkups, or to make an appointment, just give us a call at 317-298-3384. One of our friendly team members will be glad to help.
Make Sure Your Kids Maintain Happy Smiles
When you partner with Isaacs Family Dental, you’re teaming up with a group of professionals who are dedicated to providing the very best smile care possible to you and your loved ones. After all, “Family” is our middle name! You can count on us to help your child keep their smile in good shape.
Here, routine checkups are anything but routine. We won’t just give your child’s mouth a quick “look-see.” Rather, we’ll take our time and give them a complete exam to uncover any looming problems that could sidetrack their smiles.
That’s why we use electronic cavity detectors in our practice. They use light to detect traces of decay that are invisible to the naked eye. We can catch decay sooner this way, making the treatment less invasive and costly. The smaller the cavity, the simpler the repair is.
Depending on the condition of your child’s teeth, we may recommend fluoride treatments or dental sealants as preventive measures. When fluoride is applied directly to the teeth, it will remineralize and strengthen the enamel, helping keep decay away.
Sealants are thin plastic coatings that we place on the biting surfaces of molars to form a protective shield against decay-causing bacteria. These two services work extremely well to help fight cavities in kids’ mouths.
After inspecting their teeth and gums, our dental hygienist will thoroughly clean and polish each of their teeth. They will make sure to pay special attention to those areas that your child might miss at home, in between teeth and around their back teeth. When your child leaves our office, they’ll have that “fresh-from-the-dentist feeling” that they can only get from a professional cleaning.
Finally, Dr. Isaacs will perform a complete inspection on their mouth. He will look carefully at any trouble spots noted by the hygienist and, if necessary, make recommendations for additional treatments.
You can rest assured that your child will receive only the best care from Dr. Isaacs and our compassionate team. We love to treat children and teens, and it shows in everything we do. We’ll work hard to help them feel at ease, eliminating any dental anxiety they may be feeling.
