Dentistry For Children

Even when your kids brush and floss on a regular basis, plaque can build up on their teeth over time and lead to cavities. Other problems, such as jaw misalignment, can affect their oral health. That’s why it’s so important for kids to have regular dental care from a family dentist. At Issaquah Premier Dental, Dr. Diana Wu offers caring and comprehensive family dentistry for children in Issaquah, Washington.

Dentistry for Children Q & A

What are the benefits of family dentistry?

Dr. Wu can track the progress of your kids’ dental and orthodontic development over the years and provide treatment for any problems that occur.

Plus, going to a family dentist means that everyone in your family will be seeing the same dental provider for all of your needs. That makes scheduling appointments more convenient, and it can also help your kids feel more comfortable about dental visits.

What kinds of dental services does pediatric dentistry include?

Dr. Wu provides routine dental checkups and cleanings for your kids, as well as extractions, crowns, and other services for tooth care and restoration.

When you bring your kids in for cleanings and exams, Dr. Wu might also apply sealants, depending on their age. They also receive fluoride treatment to help reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Dr. Wu even provides entertainment systems and other comforts to help kids relax.

What are sealants?

Sealants help protect your kids’ teeth from plaque buildup. Dr. Wu applies sealants on children’s back teeth to lower the risk of having bacteria build up.

The grooves on the surfaces of these back teeth are difficult for kids to brush thoroughly, which makes them more susceptible to bacteria. Having sealants on, which don’t take long to apply, significantly reduces the risk of cavities in these back teeth.

How often do my kids need to see a dentist?

Kids should have dental cleanings and exams done twice a year to ensure their teeth are free from plaque and tartar.

These visits give Dr. Wu a chance to check for any problems with your kids’ teeth, gums, or jaw alignment. Since your kids’ jaws are still growing, checking for misalignments and correcting them helps prevent complications, such as difficulty chewing.

What happens if my kids have dental problems?

If Dr. Wu finds a problem with your kids’ teeth, gums, or alignment during routine appointments, she’ll recommend treatment as needed.

For example, your kids might need help learning to floss if they have gingivitis, or they might need to visit the dentist more frequently to have Dr. Wu fill cavities caused by tooth decay. If there are problems with jaw alignment, Dr. Wu will discuss treatment options and refer you to an orthodontist if needed.

If your children need dental work or routine checkups, please contact Issaquah Premier Dental, in Issaquah, Washington,  to schedule an appointment with Dr. Wu.
