Preventive Dentistry in Levittown

Keeping Your Child’s Oral Health in Excellent Condition

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children have their first visit to the dentist when they get their first tooth but no later than their first birthday. At Little Smiles of Levittown, we offer preventive treatments to help children develop positive dental habits early so they can enjoy a lifetime of good oral hygiene and dental health.

We encourage you to contact our office at (516) 217-8910 to learn more about our preventive dentistry in Levittown.

Dental Exams & Cleanings

Although good home care is essential to healthy teeth and gums, regular professional cleanings help remove plaque and tartar that build up despite brushing and flossing. We allow kids to choose a fun toothpaste and fluoride flavor as well as provide tips about proper brushing, flossing, and healthy food choices. During the visit, Dr. Lee will conduct a thorough examination and build a lasting relationship with your child. If tooth decay or another problem is discovered, Dr. Lee will discuss the problem and any treatment that may be needed.

Preventing Tooth Decay

We use fluoride treatments to protect your child’s teeth in addition to keeping them strong and free of cavities. In our office, we use a flavored gel that is applied to the teeth after cleaning and allowed to set and absorb into the tooth enamel for 30 minutes. Supplemental fluoride may be recommended with fluoridated water, mouth rinses, and brushing. The other preventive treatment that we highly recommend is sealing the teeth to prevent tooth decay.

Dental sealants offer numerous benefits, including:

  • A barrier against cavities and decay in the baby molars, premolars, and posterior molars
  • Protection for chewing surfaces, which are difficult to clean with brushing
  • Protecting vulnerable areas from food contact and plaque formation

Dental sealants are a cost-effective and efficient way to protect your child’s teeth for several years. We recommend applying sealants as early as possible for maximum effectiveness. Sealants are less expensive than filling cavities, and the protection lasts for several years before another application would be needed.
