Schedule Your Child’s Fall Dental Cleaning and Exam Now
Even though it’s just the first of August, you know it can’t be too far behind. What is it, you ask? It’s back-to-school season! Before you know it, the kids will be back in school and the house will be a little quieter.
But before they can head off to school, you have to get them ready to go. That means trips out to get new clothes, shoes, and school supplies, or at least some time spent online ordering all those items.
There is one thing, however, that you may not think about at first, and that’s your child’s smile. Don’t send them back to school without making an appointment for their fall dental cleaning and exam. Make sure that their teeth are in good shape for the new school year by calling Oregon Smile Care Center today at (503) 837-2718 to schedule an appointment.
We’ll Give Your Child Excellent Treatment
When you partner with us for your child’s dental care, you’re getting more than just a great dentist. Our team loves taking care of our dental family’s smiles, and it shows in everything we do. Bring your child in to see us and we’ll make sure they get the best treatment possible to help them maintain a bright smile and a healthy mouth.
Our dental hygienist will examine your child’s teeth and gums, looking carefully for any problems that need attention. Of course, cavities are always a big concern with kids. With that in mind, we’ve invested in an electronic cavity detector that can catch small traces of tooth decay invisible to the naked eye. We believe this is the best way to catch problems early and provide the best treatment.
Another piece of high-tech equipment we use in our office is our digital X-ray machine. Not only does this technology emit up to 90 percent less radiation than a standard X-ray machine, it also gives us more detailed images faster. The result is an all-around better experience for our patients – in this case, your child.
Our Hygienist Will Thoroughly Clean Your Child’s Teeth
After they examine your child’s mouth, our hygienist will give your child one of our famous teeth cleanings. Your child can choose the flavor of polish we use, which should make them a little happier about being at the dentist!
The hygienist will carefully clean and polish each of your child’s teeth, making sure to reach all the nooks and crannies they might miss at home. When we’ve finished, their teeth will sparkle and they’ll have that “fresh-from-the-dentist” feeling that only comes from a professional teeth cleaning.
Your Child May Need Extra Treatments
Depending on what we find when we examine your child’s teeth, we may recommend additional treatments. Fluoride applications are common, as they are a great way to help prevent cavities. When fluoride is applied directly to the teeth, it will strengthen and help remineralize tooth enamel. The result is stronger, healthier teeth that are more resistant to cavities.
As a special bonus for our younger patients who are athletes, we provide a custom-fit athletic mouthguard once a year. Did you know that athletes who don’t wear mouth protection are 60 times more likely to suffer a dental injury than athletes who do? We do our part to help kids maintain an intact smile. So, if you have a budding athlete, be sure to let us know.
Don’t forget to schedule your child’s fall dental cleaning and exam. Now is a great time to do it before school starts back! Call Oregon Smile Care Center today at (503) 837-2718 to make an appointment. You can also request an appointment time online.
