Kid’s Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings

Whether it is your toddler, school-aged child, or teen, six-month dental checkups are highly recommended by our Pleasant Dental team. During these appointments, Dr. Bodapati will examine their mouth and remove any accumulated plaque should any be found. We’ll go over ways to improve oral hygiene habits at home and discuss a personalized treatment plan if more extensive services are required.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

When cavities form, it can be a time-sensitive issue when it comes to providing treatment. Waiting too long will cause the decay to spread; however, with silver diamine fluoride (SDF), our team can attack it at the source. Once applied, the silver works quickly to kill the bacteria, while the fluoride prevents additional decay from forming. This effective combination is a great way to treat young patients who are fearful of needles and who may not be ready to receive a tooth-colored filling.

Dental Sealants

Cavities are preventable, but it’s not uncommon for them to form in children’s mouths, especially among the molars and premolars. These teeth are highly susceptible to decay because of their pits and grooves as well as their location within the mouth. Because they can be hard to reach for small hands, they may be overlooked while cleaning. With dental sealants, though, we can apply this clear coating over the chewing surfaces, better protecting your child’s smile year after year.

Athletic Mouthguards / Sportsguards

Playing contact sports can be fun for kids, but it can also lead to injury. Keeping your little ones protected is important, which is why you should inquire about a custom-made athletic mouthguard. Instead of those found in local sporting goods stores that are one-size-fits-all, we can create one from impressions made of your child’s teeth so that it fits comfortably, delivers maximum support and protection, and is more likely to stay in their mouth throughout the game.

Non-Nutritive Oral Habits

Thumb-sucking and using pacifiers are normal for infants learning to soothe when faced with uncertainty, but these habits can become problematic if they’re allowed to persist. These non-nutritive habits can lead to changes in facial shape and tooth alignment, negatively affecting their bite over time. Our team will work with you and your child to eliminate these practices using techniques focused on positive reinforcement so that there is less stress and more successful outcomes.
