Spring: The Perfect Time to Visit Your Local Dental Office, Anchorage, Alaska

Spring cleaning is a time to refresh and rejuvenate your home, but it doesn’t have to be limited to just your house. Treat your children’s teeth and gums the way you treat your home by giving them the deep cleaning they need after months of holiday sweets. Schedule exams at Discovery Dental, the Eagle River, AK-based dental office providing preventative dentistry services for kids, infants, and teens.

Here are some of the many services the family dentist offers to keep your children smiling brightly throughout the spring season and beyond:

Teeth Cleanings & Exams

Schedule teeth cleanings and general exams for your kids this spring if it has been six months or more since your last dental office visit. Professional teeth cleaning services are the only way to remove tartar, the hardened form of plaque that irritates gum tissue. Dental exams follow routine teeth cleanings to check for signs of cavities, gingivitis, and other issues that are less painful and costly when spotted early.

Correct Brushing & Flossing Techniques

Work with your dentist and dental hygienist at Discovery Dental to ensure your children learn the correct way to brush and floss their teeth. The dental clinic makes learning about oral hygiene fun with a brightly-colored environment that includes the use of toys and movies.

Fluoride Treatments & Sealants

Consider dental sealants and fluoride treatments for your little ones this spring. Dental sealants are thin coatings of plastic applied to molars and premolars to protect enamel and prevent tooth decay. Fluoride treatments are often recommended for children older than 6 months of age to strengthen their tooth enamel against cavities.

Work with the family dentistry team dedicated to making every dental office experience positive and informative. Schedule springtime dental appointments today by calling Discovery Dental at (907) 622-5437.
