At All Smiles Bethesda, we understand the unique dental needs of everyone. We see children beginning at the age of 6 months up to elderly patients over 100 years old. Each person has their own unique set of goals and challenges. We formulate individual treatment plans for everyone.
For children, we like to establish good habits from an early age. A healthy diet, good oral hygiene routines, and regular dental checkups can help maintain a healthy mouth from the very start of their oral care journey. Your child’s first dental visit gives us a chance to see how their teeth and gums are developing and if there are any possible issues that need to be addressed.
Preventive treatments such as dental sealants and topical fluoride applications may be administered during your child’s regular dental checkups. Sealants help in preventing cavities by sealing out the pits and fissures on the surface of the back teeth. Fluoride applications help strengthen the enamel and make your teeth more resistant to decay.
Regular dental visits are just as important, if not even more important, for the elderly. As you age, many of us will experience medical changes what will affect our teeth. The mouth is the entry point for the entire body, and changes in your oral health can affect your overall health, and vice versa.
Regular checkups and cleanings help us keep track of your child’s oral development and treat or avoid potential problems in the future. For adults, we want to help maintain healthy teeth and healthy habits.
