Does your child struggle with cavities or keeping their teeth clean? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), dental caries is among children's most common chronic diseases. But there's good news: cavities are 100 percent preventable!
Your child can avoid tooth decay and other harmful health concerns with excellent oral hygiene and habits. Practicing proper brushing and flossing at home is essential, but routine dental exams and cleanings are integral to their oral health regimen.
Our Randolph, NJ dental office offers various children's dentistry services for all of your child or teen's needs. Dr. Chris Kaplan is a highly skilled and compassionate children's dentist who loves helping little ones discover their healthiest, most beautiful smiles.
Our Children's Dentistry Services in Randolph
Your child's smile is precious, and it deserves the best possible dental care available. That's why we offer various children's dentistry services at Randolph Dental Associates, including:
#1 Children's Dental Cleanings and Exams
Dental cleanings and exams are the bread and butter of dental care. As a dental team with our own families, we always strive to ensure your child feels safe and comfortable in our care. We check for signs of decay, gum inflammation, developmental milestones, and more during each exam. We gently and thoroughly clean their teeth for cleanings to remove plaque and food debris, therefore decreasing the risk of cavities. Dr. Kaplan or the hygienist can also show you the proper techniques for brushing and flossing your child's teeth for at-home care.
#2 Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride helps prevent cavities and strengthens the teeth. We are pleased to offer fluoride treatments to children and teenagers so they can maintain healthy, strong smiles that are cavity-free.
#3 Dental Sealants
Dental sealants are like little raincoats for the teeth, as they repel bacteria and cavity-causing plaque. Your child's dentist paints the thin coating onto the tooth with a tiny brush, protecting the tooth.
Mouthguards protect your child's smile during sports and physical activities. With a mouthguard, your child can run, jump, tackle, and more with extra protection for their teeth and gums. Mouthguards may also help your child if they have a tooth grinding or clenching habit.
