What to Expect
Preparing your child for their preventive dentistry appointment starts at home. Explaining to your child what they can expect can help them overcome any anxiety they may feel about going to the dentist. At Timber Orthodontics, we create a comfortable environment so your kids will feel right at ease! During the appointment, our dental hygienist will thoroughly brush your child's teeth and remove any hardened plaque or tartar that cannot be taken off with a toothbrush. They will then floss your child's teeth and take up-to-date x-rays. The dentist will then perform an exam to determine if there are any present dental issues of concern and provide a treatment plan if needed. Your child is welcome to ask questions at any time!
An important step in protecting your child's teeth is applying fluoride during their routine visit. An easy process, fluoride is an essential mineral that helps protect tooth enamel from cavities and tooth decay. Your kids will love that they can choose the flavor, and as a parent you can feel confident that they will be protected in between dental visits.
