For advanced oral health issues, our dentists might recommend restorative treatments

At your child’s twice-yearly cleaning and exam, we’ll be on the lookout for any and all oral health issues. When this happens, we’ll recommend the appropriate treatment or referral to address the issue. We’ll always lay out your options, explain the risks and benefits, and leave plenty of time to answer your questions.

Preventive Treatment Services at Children’s Dentistry of Charlottesville

We recommend that patients come to our office for a twice-yearly exam and cleaning. At your child’s exam, we’ll discuss any issues they’ve been experiencing over the previous 6 months, and any concerns you have.

At your child’s twice-yearly appointments, you can expect…

  • Thorough dental exam
  • Comprehensive teeth cleaning
  • Yearly x-rays to examine bone structure, tooth development, and identify early-stage decay
  • Outline of at-home oral hygiene and nutritional tips because prevention is the key to excellent oral health.

Teeth Cleanings

Dental cleanings clear your child’s teeth and gums of potentially dangerous plaque, tartar, and bacteria to prevent tooth decay.

Ongoing Care & Maintenance FAQ

Is preventive dentistry and routine care covered by insurance?

Exact insurance coverage depends on your plan, but preventive care such as oral exams and dental cleanings are commonly covered.

When should I schedule my infant’s first appointment?

We recommend that most children attend their first dental appointment around the time of their first birthday or when their first tooth comes in. Whichever comes first.

How often does a child need a dental exam and cleaning?

For most children, we recommend 2 dental exams every year, about 6 months apart. Of course, if your child needs extensive treatment, more frequent exams might be needed.

My child has special needs and has trouble at the dentist. Can you still perform preventive treatments?

Absolutely. In most cases, we are still able to perform basic dental exams for children with Special Needs. Our dentists have lots of experience working with children who have special needs, including Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, and dental anxiety.
