​What to Expect at Your Child’s Dental Appointment​ | Dr. David Ward

Dentist Auburn

Regular dental check-ups are vital for maintaining optimal oral health, especially for children in their formative years. At Evergreen Dental, led by Dr. David Ward, we prioritize preventive care to ensure healthy smiles for our young patients.

During your child’s routine visit, our dedicated team will conduct a thorough examination to assess for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Professional dental cleanings play a crucial role in removing plaque and tartar buildup, safeguarding against tooth decay and promoting overall oral wellness.

We understand the importance of educating children about proper oral hygiene practices. Our team will take the time to discuss effective brushing techniques, the importance of flossing, and the benefits of using mouthwash. We strive to create a supportive and nurturing environment where children feel comfortable asking questions and learning about dental care.

As part of our preventive approach, we may recommend topical fluoride application to strengthen enamel and enhance resistance to tooth decay. Additionally, dental sealants are highly effective in protecting the vulnerable chewing surfaces of molars and premolars, particularly in cavity-prone areas.

The process of applying sealants is quick and straightforward, involving thorough cleaning, drying of the teeth, application of a liquid sealant, and curing with a special light. These sealants serve as a protective barrier, shielding the enamel from harmful plaque and acids, and can last for several years with proper care.

While sealants offer valuable protection, they are not a substitute for regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings. Our team will provide comprehensive guidance on maintaining optimal oral hygiene habits to complement the benefits of sealants.

At Evergreen Dental, we believe that every child deserves a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime. Our experienced dentist, Dr. David Ward, and our knowledgeable team are dedicated to providing personalized care to support your child’s dental health journey.
