What happens during pediatric dentistry visits?

During pediatric dentistry appointments at White Hill Dental, friendly staff members welcome your child or teen to the practice. They take dental X-rays if needed while your child sits in a comfortable, reclining chair.

A specialist gently cleans the teeth to remove hard-to-reach tartar and plaque. They also polish and floss your child’s teeth before a dentist completes a dental exam and reviews the results of their dental X-rays. 

Your child might be a candidate for preventive treatments, such as fluoride treatments or sealants, or restorative dental procedures (fillings, crowns, etc.). Their dentist tailors each treatment plan to maximize oral health and reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth damage.

Encourage your child to brush their teeth after meals, floss every day, and limit sugary drinks and sweets in favor of healthier options. They should wear a mouthguard if they play contact sports or grind their teeth at night and avoid chewing on hard objects that can damage their teeth.

How often should I schedule pediatric dentistry appointments?

Schedule a pediatric dentistry appointment for your child at White Hill Dental at least every six months or if they experience new or unusual symptoms. You can also call the office or schedule an appointment if you have questions or concerns about your child’s dental health.
