If your child is experiencing a toothache, it is possible they may have a cavity that needs attention. To catch cavities early, our Sierra Oaks Dental team offers cleanings and exams for children as well as adults. Routine dental exams allow our hygienists to remove plaque and tartar and examine teeth and gums to spot signs of tooth decay. Our hygienist then polishes the teeth and applies a fluoride varnish to protect their tiny chompers from further decay.

Fluoride is a natural cavity fighter that helps remineralize your child’s tooth to keep them healthy and strong! This is important, as their teeth are always at risk from bacteria, sugar and acids from the foods and beverages they consume. Our dentists, Dr. Peter Kim and Dr. Navid Torabian are ready to help your child with their smile with a fluoride treatment in Sacramento, California. Call (916) 481-2000 today to schedule a visit for your child!
