Dr. Delaplain DDS, is a kid’s & family dentist practicing at Matrix Dental Group in Arnold, MO. The numerous years of experience in treatment procedures Dr. Delaplain has obtained as a pediatric dentist equivalent have allowed parents and families to feel comfortable sending their loved ones to Matrix Dental Group. During a dental appointment, dental assistants or hygienists will start by analyzing your kid’s medical history with you. This is to make sure that Dr. Delaplain and his team are up to date on the overall health of your child so that we may have knowledge about any issues that may affect your child’s dental health.
• Child’s mouth examined for overall oral health • Gently remove plaque and tartar that cause cavities & gum disease • Fluoride applied to protect & strengthen teeth in weak areas
• Promotes the remineralization of weak tooth structure, preventing cavities • Prescribe the specific amount of fluoride that your child may need by monitoring teeth over time • Too much fluoride may damage developing teeth & too little leaves teeth vulnerable to decay
• Children need X-rays more frequently than adults because of the rapid growth of their mouths • X-rays display weaknesses in the tooth structure that may not be visible through the eye alone • Use of digital radiography that emits 1/4 the radiation of old x-rays, safeguarding your children
• Repair fractured or decaying teeth • Used to restore front or back teeth where appearance is important • Shade of composite material is matched as closely as possible to natural teeth
