Preventative Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry

Our team at Adventure Dental wants to give your little one’s smile a great start. That’s why we’ve
chosen to make preventive dentistry a centerpiece of our practice. Through routine care, we seek to  help children enjoy quality oral health as they grow. And with our commitment to education, we want to equip them with the knowledge they’ll need to develop healthy brushing and flossing habits-habits  that could lead to a lifetime of excellent health.

Our preventive dental services include:

Dental Cleanings and Exams

Let’s face it, children aren’t always the most thorough when it comes to brushing and flossing. As a result, young patients are often more vulnerable to dental problems like tooth decay and plaque
buildup. That’s why it’s so important for your son or daughter to see a dentist at least twice a year.

Dental Sealants and Fluoride Treatments

Besides helping young patients with regular exams and cleanings, we offer two other very effective
preventive services: dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Dental sealants are designed to protect the the pits and grooves on the chewing surfaces of the molars from decay. The service works using a thin layer of material that is applied to the patient’s teeth as a liquid and then dried, providing years of protection. Fluoride, on the other hand, works by providing minerals that will strengthen enamel against the damage that acidic bacteria can cause.
