Periodic checkups with our Burlington kids dentist are vital for helping your child establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles. At Four Points Family Dental, we make every visit to our office a positive and engaging experience for your child. We focus on a preventive approach to help your child maintain healthy teeth from the start, and strive to impart excellent oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.
As soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, usually by his or her first birthday, it’s time for a checkup with our Burlington kids dentist. At every age, our friendly professional staff will help your child feel comfortable and relaxed, addressing any emotional needs that may arise during this new and important experience. At each checkup visit, we will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, tracking their growth and development and checking for any developing dental problems that require care. Due to dietary and lifestyle habits, children are especially susceptible to developing cavities; our team offers protective treatments to keep your child’s teeth cavity-free. When your child’s permanent molars erupt, we may recommend dental sealants, which are protective coatings painted on the biting surfaces of these vulnerable back teeth to prevent plaque from gathering in the crevices. We also offer fluoride treatments, which involve the application of the mineral fluoride to prevent the erosion of tooth enamel. As part of your child’s preventive care, we also provide a thorough teeth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from the most difficult to reach spots. Teeth cleanings are also an opportunity for us to guide your child on better techniques for brushing and flossing at home.
When you have a compassionate, experienced Burlington kids dentist, it’s easy to keep up with your child’s preventive checkups. At Four Points Family Dental, we provide the personalized attention and compassionate treatment your child deserves. To learn more about our services or to schedule an appointment, call today.
