Children's Flouride Supplements
Fluoride is a mineral that helps to strengthen teeth to prevent cavities and reverse or restore minerals to small cavities that are affecting the outer enamel layer of the tooth.

 

Patients who are at risk for cavities most likely need fluoride supplement therapy along with good nutrition and dental home care to help control tooth decay.

 

At My Fairfax Dental, we have Fluoride treatments for children and recommend this during their regular dental cleanings.

Children's Dental Sealant
Most people who have grooves on their teeth cannot remove all the bacteria that causes decay just by brushing alone which is why Dr. Le recommends Sealants.

A sealant is a thin coating that the Dr. Le applies to the surface of molars, premolars and any deep grooves of teeth.  More than 75% of dental decay begins in these deep grooves.  Teeth with these conditions are hard to clean and are very susceptible to decay.  A sealant protects the tooth by sealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface.

 

Sealants are especially recommended for the adult first and second molars, for children around 6 years and 12 years of age respectively.

 

Regular checkups and professional cleanings can help maintain good oral health by removing harmful bacteria buildup known to cause dental diseases.

 

  • Sealants for Baby teeth:
    Dr. Le will recommend that sealants be done only if the teeth have deep grooves or depressions and child is cavity prone.
  • Sealants for Children and Teenagers:
    Dr. Le recommends that Sealants be applied for children as soon as the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear and any time throughout the cavity prone years of 6-16.
  • Sealants for Adults:
    We recommend that Adults also get Dental Sealants for those tooth surfaces without decay that have deep grooves or depressions to protect the tooth from decay.

Childen's Dental Exam in Fairfax, VA by Dr. Hang Le
Regular dental exams along with modern low radiation digital dental Xrays are crucial in helping to identify any soft and hard tissue abnormalities of the oral cavity and surrounding structures of the head and neck area.
It can also show:

  1. Abnormal Development or poor positioning of either tooth and roots.
  2. Moderate to Severe bone loss,
  3. Tooth Decay,

X-Rays also allow the Dentist to see problems that occur below the gum line or inside the tooth itself.

 

Children are recommended to have at least two checkups with professional cleanings per year. Most insurances will cover cleanings and checkups, contact us to make an appointment and find out.

 

Early detection of dental problems are crucial to preventing more expensive treatment later on and unncessary pain and discomfort.

Are X-Rays Safe
Everyone is exposed to natural background radiation in the environment, however although digital x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered very safe, dentists still take necessary precautions to limit the patient’s exposure to any radiation from the X-ray. We only take X-Rays that are necessary and do so while using and using lead apron shielding to protect the body. At My Fairfax Dental, we use digital x-rays which minimize exposure to your child. Our digital X-Ray machines only need half the radiation to get a much better image than the regular film. Don’t take our word for it, it says so right on the machine.

  1. Our Digital x-rays produce a significantly lower level of radiation compared to traditional dental x-rays. Digital x-rays are not only better for the patient’s health and safety, they are quicker which reduces time in the dental office.
  2. Digital X-rays are also more environmentally friendly since the digital image is captured electronically and there is no need to develop the x-rays using environmentally harmful chemicals.
  3. Our award winning Carestream Digital Panorex machine is even better than before. This Red Dot Product Design Award winning panorex machine uses far less radiation and with a single touch, it will automatically adjust settings for Kid’s without the need for error prone settings by the operator.
