Even the youngest smiles need quality preventive care. Routine preventive care appointments allow Dr. Snyder to carefully monitor the health of your child’s teeth. We recommend that all children have their first smile check-up by their first birthday.

Dental Sealants

Along with routine cleanings and exams, we also offer fluoride treatments and sealants to our pediatric patients. Cavities tend to form in the deep grooves and pits of the difficult-to-clean back teeth. Sealants are thin layers of composite material that are painted onto the back teeth to protect those areas from developing tooth decay.

Fluoride

As a naturally occurring mineral, fluoride helps to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay. It is naturally found in water in small amounts, as well as in some foods such as eggs, meat, and fish. Fluoride treatments are given to children who still have developing teeth at the end of their dental exam and cleaning, usually twice a year. It is the most effective agent available to help us proactively prevent tooth decay.

Oral Hygiene Instruction
