What Procedures Are Included


During kids' cleaning appointments at Lynnwood Dental Excellence, our skilled pediatric dental professionals perform a range of procedures tailored to meet the unique needs of children. These procedures aim to promote good oral health, prevent dental issues, and create a positive dental experience for your child. Here are some common procedures included in kids' cleaning:

  • Thorough Teeth Cleaning

    Our dental hygienists gently and carefully clean your child's teeth using specialized tools to remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains.
  • Fluoride Treatment

    Fluoride is applied to the teeth to strengthen the enamel and protect against tooth decay. This quick and painless treatment helps keep your child's teeth strong and resistant to cavities.
  • Dental X-rays

    Depending on your child's age and dental needs, dental X-rays may be taken to get a comprehensive view of their oral health. X-rays can help identify any hidden dental problems or monitor the development of teeth and jaws.
  • Dental Exam

    Our pediatric dentists will perform a thorough examination of your child's teeth, gums, and oral tissues to check for any signs of cavities, gum disease, or other dental issues. This evaluation allows us to provide early intervention and treatment if necessary.
  • Oral Hygiene Education

    Our dental professionals will educate your child about proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing techniques. We will explain the importance of maintaining good oral health and provide personalized recommendations for your child's specific needs.
  • Sealants

    Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent cavities. They act as a barrier, sealing off the deep grooves and crevices where bacteria and food particles can accumulate.
  • Oral Cancer Screening

    As part of our comprehensive kids' cleaning, our dental team will conduct an oral cancer screening. While rare in children, early detection is crucial for timely intervention and treatment.
These procedures are tailored to the age and specific needs of your child, ensuring that their dental health is properly cared for during their cleaning appointments. At Lynnwood Dental Excellence, we are dedicated to providing gentle and comprehensive kids' cleaning services to help your child maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.

How are inlays and onlays different from dental fillings?
Inlays and onlays are larger restorations that cover a larger portion of the tooth compared to fillings. They provide additional strength and support to the tooth structure, making them suitable for more extensive damage or decay.
Does a root canal treatment hurt?
The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, so you should not feel any pain during the treatment. However, you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity in the days following the procedure, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
How long does it take to get used to wearing dentures?
It may take a few weeks to get used to wearing dentures and develop the proper speaking and chewing function. Initially, you may experience some soreness or discomfort, but with time and practice, these issues usually resolve.

General Dentistry

Why do wisdom teeth need to be extracted?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often require extraction due to various reasons such as inadequate space in the mouth, impaction, improper alignment, risk of decay or infection, and potential damage to surrounding teeth or structures.
Does wisdom teeth extraction hurt?
Wisdom teeth extraction is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that you do not feel pain during the procedure. You may experience some discomfort and swelling afterward, but your dentist will provide post-operative instructions and may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort.
What is TMJ disorder or TMD?
TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) disorder, often referred to as TMD, encompasses various conditions that affect the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. It can result in jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds, difficulty in opening or closing the mouth, and other related symptoms.
How is TMJ disorder treated?
TMJ disorder treatment varies depending on the specific diagnosis and severity of the condition. It may involve conservative approaches like lifestyle changes, stress management, jaw exercises, oral splints or nightguards, physical therapy, or in some cases, more advanced treatments like orthodontics or surgery.
Why are routine dental cleanings important?
Routine dental cleanings are essential for maintaining optimal oral health. They involve the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth, along with a thorough examination of your oral cavity. Regular cleanings help prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental issues.
How often should I have routine dental cleanings?
It is generally recommended to have a professional dental cleaning every six months. However, the frequency may vary based on your specific oral health needs. Your dentist will assess your condition and recommend the appropriate interval for your routine cleanings.

Cosmetic Dentistry

What are Invisalign clear aligners?
Invisalign is a clear aligner system that straightens teeth without the use of traditional metal braces. It uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift teeth into the desired position.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on individual needs. On average, treatment can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months. Your dentist will provide a personalized treatment plan and timeline during the initial consultation.
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. They are used to improve the appearance of teeth by altering their shape, color, size, or alignment.
Are veneers permanent?
Veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic dental treatment, as a small amount of enamel is typically removed to ensure a proper fit. However, they may need to be replaced over time due to normal wear or if damage occurs.
What is in-office teeth whitening?
In-office teeth whitening is a professional teeth whitening treatment performed at the dental office using high-concentration whitening agents and advanced technology. It is a safe and effective way to achieve a brighter, whiter smile in a short amount of time.

How long does cosmetic bonding last?
The lifespan of cosmetic bonding depends on various factors, such as oral hygiene practices, bite forces, and the location of the bonding. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, cosmetic bonding can last for several years.

Pediatric Dentistry

When should my child have their first dental cleaning?
It is recommended that children have their first dental cleaning by the age of one or within six months after their first tooth erupts. Early dental visits help establish a foundation for good oral health and allow the dentist to monitor your child's dental development.
How often should my child have dental cleanings?
Typically, children should have dental cleanings every six months. However, the frequency may vary depending on your child's specific oral health needs and the dentist's recommendation.
What are dental sealants?
Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth (molars and premolars). They act as a barrier, preventing the accumulation of plaque and bacteria in the deep grooves and pits of the teeth.
When should dental sealants be applied to my child's teeth?
Dental sealants are usually applied to permanent molars as soon as they erupt, typically around the ages of 6 and 12. Applying sealants early helps protect the vulnerable chewing surfaces of the teeth from decay.
What is the importance of preventative care for children's oral health?
Preventative care is crucial for maintaining optimal oral health in children. It includes regular dental check-ups, cleanings, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and education on proper oral hygiene practices. These measures help prevent cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues.
How can I help my child maintain good oral hygiene at home?
You can help your child maintain good oral hygiene by encouraging them to brush their teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste, teaching them proper brushing and flossing techniques, and promoting a healthy diet low in sugary snacks and beverages.
