Routine Exams & Cleanings

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, children should have biannual dental appointments starting six months after their first tooth grows in. During these checkups, your Pittsford dentist will prevent future dental problems, treat current problems, and keep a thorough record of your child’s oral health and development. He or she may also perform dental X-rays to look for cavities and signs of decay.

Fluoride and sealants are often recommended for children to keep their teeth strong and protect them from cavities. Thorough teeth cleanings will remove built-up plaque, food, and bacteria between teeth and from hard-to-reach spots that kids might miss when brushing.

Baby Teeth Cavity Prevention

Pittsford Pediatric Dentistry You Can Trust

Children are generally far more susceptible to cavities than adults. Cavities form when teeth are regularly exposed to sugars and carbohydrates and when teeth are not properly cleaned. At Sanger Dental at the Basin, we work hard to educate children and parents about the risks of baby cavities and on how to properly prevent them through positive oral health habits.

Help your child prevent cavities at home by:

  • Ensuring they eat a balanced diet
  • Cutting out sugary snacks and juices
  • Avoiding sticky foods
  • Rinsing pacifiers
  • Making sure they brush and floss at least twice a day
  • Taking them to biannual dental checkups

Early Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontic treatment can prevent and amend irregularities with your child’s bite, which could be caused by genetics, early loss of baby teeth, thumb sucking, and other developmental problems or habits.

For children with orthodontic irregularities, treatments can:

  • Improve self-esteem
  • Help his or her jaw grow properly
  • Reduce the risk of developing bruxism
  • Reduce the risk of baby cavities
  • Prevent speech problems

Dr. Sanger can recommend which treatments and procedures are best suited for your children. We may recommend dental appliances like braces to straighten your child’s smile. A straighter smile makes it easier for your child to properly clean his or her teeth and can provide a boost of confidence.
