Our Dental Services
Cavities are a serious and extremely prevalent health complication among school-aged children. During the summer, oral hygiene routines can become less strict and the amount of sweets consumed much higher. Your child may not currently be expressing symptoms of cavities but that does not mean they aren’t there!
In order to meet the unique needs of every patient we offer a wide range of services including:
- General cleanings
- Cosmetic dentistry
- Cavity checks and fillings
- Smile alignment services
- Fluoride treatments
- Gum disease treatment
- Sedation dentistry
Our focus as your family dentists at Whitewing Dental is to repair oral complications and equip you and your child with the knowledge to care for and prevent cavities, protect against weakened enamel, and help you avoid oral gum disease.
Your child’s back-to-school dental checkup will include:
- A review of your child’s dental and medical history
- An examination of their teeth and jaws to check for existing complications
- A routine dental cleaning followed by fluoride solution
- An assessment of additional dental care treatments to fix any issues
In addition to the care we provide at WhiteWing Dental, we want to make sure you and your child are aware of the steps you can take at home to achieve your best smile.
Oral Hygiene Tips 101
Keeping the mouth clean and healthy requires a strict oral hygiene routine on a daily basis. The following simple but important steps can truly make the difference between a mouth full of pearly whites or a mouth full of cavities:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste.
- Rinse with antiseptic wash and floss to get rid of food particles.
- Make better food choices. Pick fruits and veggies over junk foods.
- Drink plenty of water and eliminate acidic or sugary beverages.
Taking care of your teeth on a daily basis can help you maintain that super soaring confidence with a vibrant smile. It will also make your dental visits a breeze, plus you and your children won’t have to worry about pesky cavities and toothaches.
