Mill Creek Pediatric Dentistry
Because Even the Smallest Smiles Deserve Excellent Dental Care.
A smile that lasts a lifetime begins with early, regular dental care. Mill Creek Dentist Dr. Brian Rutherford offers pediatric dentistry so that kids can get their smiles off to a strong, healthy start.
Regular Check Ups and Cleanings
We recommend that your child first be seen by the dentist at age 3 to make sure teeth are developing normally. Once your child has all his or her teeth, we recommend he or she be seen every 6 months for a thorough check up, cleaning and fluoride treatment.
Fluoride protects the smallest of children against dental decay. Not only should you use fluoride toothpaste at home, we recommend your child receive a fluoride treatment every 6 months at his or her check up.
Dental sealants are one of the most valuable innovations in modern dentistry, protecting back molars from decay and cavities. The tooth-colored sealant material is “painted” on the molar, and then dried with a hand-held light. The procedure is quick and painless and the sealant lasts for several years.
A protective mouthguard should be worn every time your child plays a sport. Dr. Rutherford offers Under Armour® Performance Mouthguards that not only protect teeth, they also enhance performance. These custom-fit mouth guards help athletes of all ages and ability achieve better balance, longer endurance, improved strength, more power and expanded range of motion.
Under Armour Mouthguards provide superior comfort and protection against injury than those “boil and bite” mouth guards available at sporting goods stores.
We look forward to taking care of your children’s smiles for their lifetimes. Schedule their next check up today at your Mill Creek Dentist.
