Preventive Dentistry for Children – Protecting Your Child’s Teeth


A child receiving dental care at Smile Shoppe Pediatric Dentistry in Rogers, ARDental health problems can affect anyone, even young children. On top of that, some of the dental problems that affect young adults and adults stem from dental problems that were not discovered or treated at an early age. Preventive dentistry at a young age is thus a vital part of an oral health problem, as it can help to guarantee a great future for your child where their teeth are concerned. This is why we, at Smile Shoppe Pediatric Dentistry, offer preventative pediatric dental care that you and your child can rely on.

Why Do Children Need Preventive Dental Care?


•  Preventive dental care at a young age sets a great foundation for great oral health, and this foundation can last a lifetime.
•  Dental problems such as cavities and tooth decay can affect even infants, toddlers, and young children. However, these problems are easily prevented with preventive dental care.
•  Dental problems that affect infants, toddlers and children can interfere with their nutritional intake, for example, inability to chew food, which can then cause general health problems. Preventive dentistry helps to avert this.
•  Preventive dental health helps to promote strong and healthy teeth formation in your child, which in turn translates into a great smile and a confidence boost.

Types of Preventive Dental Care


We offer a wide range of preventive pediatric dental services. These services include:
•  Cavity prevention treatments. Cavities are one of the main dental problems that affect children, usually due to poor oral hygiene and over-indulgence in sugary snacks. As a result, we offer cavity prevention treatments such as dental sealants to help prevent or treat early-onset cavities.
•  Fluoride treatments. Poorly developed baby teeth can result in serious dental problems in later years. Due to this, we offer dental care services such as fluoride treatments, which promote the growth of healthy and strong teeth in your child.
•  Dental appliances. Dental appliances play an important role in preventing dental problems or fixing minor dental problems before they become too serious. For example, a mouthguard can help to protect the teeth from damage when they are playing. Other dental appliances such as braces, space maintainers, aligners, and others can fix problems such as teeth and jaw misalignments at their onset.
•  Digital dental x-rays. Our digital dental x-rays help to evaluate the current dental health status of your kid. This is very important as it can help to identify minor or potential dental problems, thus allowing their timely treatment. For example, they can detect the onset of cavities, teeth alignment issues, wrong teeth positions, and others.
•  Oral health care education. The preventive dental care services we offer are effective, but their effectiveness is diminished where poor oral hygiene and care is involved. Therefore, as part of our dental care, we also offer you information on how you can properly care or empower your child to care for their teeth.

At Smile Shoppe Pediatric Dentistry, we are committed to helping your child avoid dental health problems through our preventive dental care. Get in touch with us today at 470-876-8883 to learn more about our preventive care or to schedule an appointment.
