Preventative Dentistry

Teeth Cleaning

The benefits of routine Teeth Cleanings (prophylaxis) for infants, young children and adolescents is numerous. Keeping teeth free of plaque helps minimize the risk of gum disease, tooth decay and other major dental problems. At Hawthorne Kid’s Dentistry we tailor each treatment plan to fit our patients needs.

Fluoride Varnishing

When used in addition to brushing, Fluoride Varnish provides extra protection against cavities. A member of our dental team applies the quick setting and pleasant tasting fluoride gel to the teeth. The gel penetrates the tooth enamel thereby hardening and protecting it. This helps to prevent new cavities from forming.

Dental Sealants (BPA Free)

A highly effective option to preventing dental decay is Dental Sealants. Dental Sealants are a safe and effective very thin plastic coating that is painted to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (the molars and premolars) and can help avert tooth decay for an average of 5 to 7 years. At Hawthorne Kid’s Dentistry we only use BPA free dental sealant.

At Hawthorne Kid’s Dentistry we believe in providing our young patients with a prevention plan that is fully customized to their individual needs. Each plan is created to help ensure the optimal health of your child’s teeth and jaws. We also provide oral hygiene instruction so your child can benefit from proper dental care at home.
