Regular dental check-ups are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health, especially for children. DiBona Dental Group, your trusted Exeter dentist, emphasizes the importance of routine dental exams every six months.

During your child's visit, we thoroughly screen their mouth for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. Professional dental cleanings are essential to remove plaque and tartar buildup, preventing tooth decay and gum issues.

Our friendly and experienced team takes the time to discuss proper brushing techniques and oral hygiene with your child. Depending on their age, we may also educate them on flossing and mouthwash use, ensuring they develop good oral habits early on.

Fluoride application is often recommended as part of your child's treatment. This strengthens enamel and makes teeth more resistant to decay, promoting long-term oral health.

Sealants are highly effective in preventing cavities on molars and premolars, which are prone to decay due to their grooves. Children typically receive sealants as soon as their permanent molars and premolars erupt, protecting them during cavity-prone years.

The process of applying sealants is quick and painless:

  1. Thoroughly clean your child's teeth.
  2. Dry the teeth.
  3. Apply a liquid solution to the chewing surfaces.
  4. Cure the solution with a special light.

Sealants act as a protective barrier, safeguarding enamel from plaque and acids. With proper care, sealants can last several years, providing long-lasting protection against decay.

However, it's essential to remember that sealants don't replace brushing and flossing. Regular oral hygiene practices, including daily brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings, are crucial for maintaining oral health.

At DiBona Dental Group, we believe that healthy smiles start at home. Our caring team will educate you and your child on making healthy food choices and maintaining proper oral hygiene practices.

With our experienced dentist and knowledgeable team, your child's dental health is in good hands at every stage of childhood. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today.
