The removal of bacteria from your child's tooth surface and underneath the gum line is extremely important for maintaining optimal oral health and total body wellness. Teeth cleanings are based on 15 minute intervals and vary from child to child. The amount of time required for a teeth cleaning is assessed on an individual basis. Your child's teeth may become discoloured by unsightly stains on the surface(s) of their teeth by consuming certain drinks/foods and/or food debris being left on the tooth surface. The good news is that most stains on the outer surfaces of the teeth can usually be removed with a professional teeth cleaning and selective polishing as the need permits. We are pleased to offer selective polishing using a fluoride-free paste to remove stains on the teeth.
Pit & fissure sealants are a safe and painless option to help protect your child’s teeth from tooth decay. A sealant is a protective coating which is applied to the biting surface(s) of the back teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that prevents food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves of the teeth and causing tooth decay.
An individualized home care regimen is discussed with you and your child to help achieve optimal oral hygiene and total body wellness. At Life Long Smiles, Melissa truly believes that prevention is the most cost effective treatment option.
