We believe in creating healthy habits for a lifetime of good oral health.

At FP Dental, we recommend bringing your child to the dentist as soon as their baby teeth appear (at around six months old). We have a calm and friendly environment to introduce your child to the world of oral health care. Bringing your child at an early age helps them get used to all the sights and smells, and it becomes a normal part of life.

What regular treatments will my child receive?

We are devoted to getting your VIPs off to a healthy start. Early dental care visits reduce a child’s anxiety over basic dental treatments such as fissure sealants and topical fluoride application.

Dental care for children is helpful in educating them on how to care for their teeth at a young age and ensuring that any potential problems are addressed early to avoid invasive treatments. During your visit, we will help to guide you on diet and lifestyle advice that will help to prevent decay.

Fluoride Varnish

Fluoride varnish is placed on teeth that are prone to caries (tooth decay), such as the molars. Children and their parents frequently find that the back teeth are difficult to clean properly, and fluoride varnish helps to keep the enamel solid. Fluoride varnish should be used 2-4 times per year, according to the Department of Health. The varnish is sweet and wonderful to taste, which is why children adore it!

Fissure Sealants

On the biting surfaces of molar teeth, pits and fissures can be detected. These small fissures are a breeding ground for the bacteria that cause decay. Fissure sealants fill and smooth these crevices as well as release fluoride to protect the enamel. The treatment is completely comfortable, and from a child’s perspective, there’s just a lot of washing and drying involved.
