Preventive dental care begins with a thorough cleaning to ensure your child's teeth and gums are healthy. A professional dental cleaning will start by addressing the tartar and plaque deposits on the enamel, which is challenging to treat at home with just daily brushing and flossing. Special instruments are used to scale buildup without harming the tooth. Once the teeth are clean, the enamel will be polished to remove stains. A professional fluoride treatment can be done following the cleaning if needed or requested. Another critical aspect of preventive dental care is an annual dental examination of their oral health. During this exam, we will assess the health of the mouth, teeth, tongue, gums, throat, and roof of the mouth. Digital images will be taken to gain a comprehensive picture and identify any issues. If your child has prosthetics, like bridges or dentures, we will assess their fit and check for wear. If any concerns are found, we will review them and discuss possible solutions.

Preventive dental care at South Coast Pediatric Dentistry offers a variety of benefits to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Some of the benefits preventive dental care provides our Santa Ana, CA patients include:
