Visit a dental practice in Suffolk to reduce your child’s risk of gum disease

While most people think professional teeth cleanings are only to prevent cavities, they also serve another important purpose in preventing periodontitis(gum disease). Adult tooth loss is incredibly common with periodontitis as it is a leading cause. Parents who instill the practice of proper oral hygiene in their children at a young age, decrease the risk of periodontitis for their children as they age. At Fun Park Pediatric Dentistry, we know that periodontitis is typically caused by plaque building up on the teeth and becoming trapped under the gums. When your child practices good oral hygiene, which includes brushing twice a day and flossing daily, the risk of getting periodontitis is reduced. However, no matter how diligent your child is, it is possible for plaque to become trapped in hard-to-reach spaces. This is why professional dental cleaning is so important. We can prevent periodontitis by performing a deep cleaning to remove all of the plaque and tartar from your child's mouth. If we identify early signs of periodontitis, we can treat it right away before it causes irritation or gingiva recession. If you live in the Suffolk and surrounding area, we invite you to call 757-767-2767 to schedule an appointment for your child's dental cleaning today.

Visit a pediatric dental practice in Suffolk if your child’s tooth becomes damaged

While teeth are made of strong dentin and enamel, it is possible for them to become damaged. Let's face it - accidents happen, whether it be from playing sports or playing in general, and teeth can get damaged. When this happens, it is important to visit our dental office so our pediatric dental team can complete a restoration for your child. By leaving a child's damaged tooth exposed, bacteria can be allowed to infect the area and possibly cause further issues. We can treat the tooth quickly so it can be restored to full functionality and appearance. Selecting the right dentist office is critical. You will want a restoration for your child that looks natural and blends in so no one can tell the difference.

Visit a dental practice in Suffolk to have your child’s restorations inspected

In our Suffolk, VA we can inspect your child's restorations to ensure they are holding up. Dental fillings, for example, are not designed to last forever. They can become worn down over time, and the initial space they were filling can enlarge due to wear from daily eating and drinking. This can create the need to have the filling replaced or a dental crown placed around the tooth. At Fun Park Pediatric Dentistry, we can inspect your child's dental fillings, and crowns when you come in for a dental appointment. If they are looking worn, we will let you know, so you can determine if you want to replace them preemptively or wait until it is necessary. Taking action in advance can sometimes prevent future discomfort, so it is important to consider all of your options.

Visit a dental practice in Suffolk to plan for your child’s future

At Fun Park Pediatric Dentistry, we help our patients to have a lifetime of good oral health with a smile they can enjoy both now and in the future. This requires careful planning. The best case scenario is for your child to maintain all of the adult teeth as he or she ages. To do so, your child's teeth need to be cared for at home and need to have professional teeth cleanings twice per year. This will help to prevent cavities and gum disease. Your child's treatment plan should also include steps that can be taken to keep your oral health in great shape. For example, we can whiten your Teenager's teeth on request. When you visit our dental office, we can work together to create a plan that works for your child's health, both now and well into the future. To get started, call 757-767-2767.
