Preventive Dental Care


Preventive dental care helps keep your children's teeth healthy. At Small World Dental, we can help you avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and other common dental problems. There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings. Preventive care includes:


  • Yearly examinations

  • Dental cleanings

  • Full-mouth x-rays

  • Fluoride treatments

  • Space maintainers

  • Tooth sealants


Did you know? The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child is seen by 6 months after his/her first tooth erupts or by 1 year old, whichever is first. We generally recommend scheduling check-ups every six months.


This frequency may vary depending on your child’s oral health.


Why pediatric preventive dental care?


With excellent dental hygiene your children can:


  1. Prevent expensive dental problems from developing.

  2. Enjoy a beautiful and healthy smile.

  3. Keep natural teeth for a lifetime.
