Preventive Services: Cleanings and Sealants

Teach your children the basics of good oral hygiene and keep their teeth healthy with our children’s dental cleaning service in The Woodlands, TX. At Enchanted Forest Pediatric Dentistry, we offer thorough cleanings to supplement the daily brushing and flossing necessary for healthy teeth and gums. The reality is that even if you brush your teeth and floss them regularly, you still need routine attention from a dentist. A routine cleaning helps your teeth stay healthy and helps the dentist detect signs of trouble, such as gum disease. A good approach is to follow the Rule of Two—brush twice a day for at least two minutes and see your dentist twice a year. With regular visits like this, problems are detected earlier, meaning the ensuing treatment is often easier and less expensive.

Kids’ Dental Cleaning For Oral Health In The Woodlands

Debris can build up on your child’s teeth even if he or she is brushing regularly. Come in for a kids’ dental cleaning that removes the left-behind debris that irritates the gums and causes decay. Young patients also benefit from the hygiene instruction provided by our staff. This guidance can improve their brushing and flossing skills, leading to healthier gums, cleaner teeth , and a more confident smile.

Thorough Pediatric Dental Cleaning

The mouth is different from the rest of your body, and it needs constant care to stay healthy. A thorough pediatric dental cleaning will remove the buildup of plaque and tartar in your mouth. The accumulation of plaque and tartar is normal, but too much of it can lead to gum disease. The body’s immune system correctly identifies tartar and plaque as a foreign substance and attacks it, which can lead to inflamed gums. By getting regular cleanings, you lend a hand to the immune system in its fight against a disease that damages both the bone and tissue of the mouth.

Fluoride Treatments & Testing

Fluoride is a substance that has been proven to strengthen teeth, making them significantly more resistant to decay. We offer treatments to replenish the fluoride content in the enamel of the teeth, strengthening them to prevent cavities. Fluoride-treated water, along with brushing and flossing regularly, dramatically reduces the risk of cavities. Knowing how much fluoride is in your primary source of drinking water will help you with preventive measures. We will evaluate the level of fluoride in your water. If it’s too low, we may recommend fluoride supplements, usually in tablets or drops, to increase the results you receive.
