Children deserve healthy, problem-free smiles that allow them to go about the important business of being a kid. Unfortunately, too many children get slowed down because of dental problems that might have been avoided with proper preventive care.
Your job is to show them how to brush and how to develop a routine of healthy oral hygiene habits. Our job at Sabino Hills Family Dentistry is to provide the preventive services like routine cleanings and exams that support your at-home efforts.

There are other practical treatments like fluoride applications that will also help keep your child’s teeth strong and healthy. Dental sealants are another weapon we have against cavities because they seal out food debris and harmful bacteria that collect on tooth surfaces. This is especially true of permanent teeth like molars and premolars that have deep crevices that are difficult to clean thoroughly.
Application of sealants is a simple process and does not require any drilling or anesthesia and can usually be completed during your child’s cleaning appointment. At our Tanque Verde, AZ office, our children’s dentistry services include fluoride and sealant applications. Please call us to arrange an appointment to learn more.
