You may occasionally find yourself looking at your child’s smile, wondering if everything is okay in there, if maybe there’s some problem you won’t know to look for, etc. The uncertainty can be a bit unsettling! The good news? When you keep up with bringing your child in to see your Riverside children’s dentist, there’s nothing to worry about. Through consistent preventive dental checkups and cleanings, your child receives consistent monitoring with our Riverside, CA practice. So, whether there’s something you need to bring to our attention that has changed or something you’re worried you won’t notice has changed, we’ve got it covered!

#1: Dental Sealants!

As you already know, you cannot really see the dental sealants on your child’s teeth, which means you don’t have the means to keep an eye on how they’re doing. Fortunately, when you bring your child in to see your Riverside children’s dentist, this is something we will watch. If touch-ups are required, we’ll let you know! Otherwise, those sealants are doing their job.

#2: Home Brushing And Flossing Habits

If you’re feeling unsure about how dental hygiene is going (or you’ve given your kids some freedom in terms of trusting that they’re doing a good job on their own because they’ve gotten a bit older), rest easy: Your Riverside children’s dentist can make suggestions about brushing and flossing habits, if necessary.

#3: Oral Health

You cannot necessarily tell what’s going on with your child’s oral health at home. If a cavity is just beginning to form, you cannot see it and your child probably won’t feel it right as it begins. Fortunately, when you bring your child in to see your Riverside children’s dentist every six months for checkups and cleanings, we can detect early changes! We may then offer advice to stop reverse very early decay or will suggest a filling to treat it!
