At Smiles of Fairlawn we provide comprehensive pediatric dental care to help your child establish a strong foundation for a healthy, beautiful smile. Our 42101 kids dentist and caring professional staff make your child’s dental checkups informative, engaging and stress-free. Bringing your child in for periodic checkups provides him or her with the tools needed to maintain excellent oral health from the start.
As soon as your child’s first tooth erupts, usually by the age of one, it’s time for a checkup with our 42101 kids dentist. Our compassionate team of professionals provides personalized attention to help your child feel most at ease throughout his or her visit. With a comprehensive examination, we track the growth and development of your child’s teeth, gums and their supporting bone structure, and can detect oral health problems from the outset. Although cavities can occur at any age, due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially susceptible. Once your child’s permanent molars erupt we can apply dental sealants, which are protective coatings painted on the biting surfaces of the back teeth to seal out plaque and debris. We also offer periodic fluoride treatments, which help prevent the erosion of tooth enamel. As part of your child’s checkup we perform a thorough, professional teeth cleaning, which allows us to remove plaque and tartar from the most difficult to reach crevices of the mouth. A teeth cleaning is also an opportunity to teach your child the importance and responsibility of maintaining excellent oral hygiene, and how to better brush and floss his or her teeth at home.
When you bring your child in for a visit with our 42101 kids dentist, you can expect personalized, compassionate care from an experienced team of professionals. At Smiles of Fairlawn we provide comprehensive preventive care for the whole family. To learn more or to schedule your child’s checkup, call today.
