Six-month dental checkups and teeth cleanings are essential to maintaining good oral health. At Frandsen Dental of West Jordan, we will not only check for cavities, but our hygienists will also use our Picasso laser to perform thorough teeth cleanings to eliminate bad bacteria from gum pockets. We’ll also screen for oral cancer and refer you to an outside specialist should we discover any abnormalities that require further testing.

Dentistry for Children

Children deserve access to high-quality dental care, which is why we are pleased to offer children’s dental services in our West Jordan dental office. A member of our team will carefully examine and treat young smiles to ensure that they remain cavity-free and continue to experience normal tooth eruption and facial development over time. If any changes occur that negatively affect their bite, teeth, or gums, we will work to correct the problem before it has a chance to worsen.

Fluoride Treatment

Found in toothpaste, tap water, and certain foods, fluoride is known to be a beneficial component of good oral hygiene. One method we use to protect cavity-prone teeth is fluoride treatment. Most beneficial for children, adults, too, can receive this unique service to combat dental decay and strengthen existing tooth enamel. Applied directly to the surfaces of teeth, the process takes only minutes and can be completed during a regular dental checkup.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants act as another form of protection, especially when it concerns the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. Children (and some adults) who struggle to reach and thoroughly clean teeth toward the back of the mouth can benefit from dental sealants, as they are clear coatings that are painted onto back teeth to keep bacteria from creeping into the various pits and grooves. They can last up to a decade and take little time to apply.
