Did you know that one of the big reasons why children miss hours of school every year is because they develop cavities and need to receive treatment? In fact, dental cavities are one of the most common diseases affecting children today. We encourage you to bring your child to the dentist regularly to prevent cavities with routine dental checkups.

The professional dental cleanings and exams provided by our team at Romney Pediatric Dental give us the opportunity to clean away plaque and tartar from the teeth and lower the risk of tooth decay. We polish the teeth to improve their look and help your child have a cheerful smile. Next, our dentist looks for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease or other dental problems so that we can quickly treat these concerns in the early stages. This helps reduce dental pain and can prevent the need for invasive treatment later on.

During this time, our dentist will also take a look at your child’s molars to determine if dental sealants should be applied to the chewing surfaces. These serve as thin coatings painted onto the teeth for form an invisible barrier against bacteria. Furthermore, we can provide fluoride treatments such as fluoride toothpaste to strengthen your child’s teeth in between dental visits.

If your child is due for a dental checkup in Salt Lake City, Utah, we encourage you to contact Romney Pediatric Dental at 801.960.7913 for a visit with one of our friendly dentists, Dr. Walter Romney, Dr. Briant Romney, or Dr. Clark Romney!
