Prevention
Tuscumbia, AL


A dental assistant with a young patient at SRD on 5th in Tuscumbia, AL.Prevention is the key to a healthy and beautiful smile, especially for children. At SRD on 5th, we specialize in several preventive services to help your child maintain excellent oral health.

Preventive Dentistry Services


Your child's dental health today will echo into their adult years. The habits you instill in them from an early age will go a long way in preventing problems like tooth decay and cavities.

Initial Exam and Digital X-Rays


Regular dental exams and digital dental x-rays play a key role in diagnosing and preventing dental health problems. When done regularly, dental exams allow us to protect your child's oral health, pinpoint problems early when they're more treatable, and clean them in ways you can't back at home.

Age 1 to 2 Visits


People often think that infants don't need dental care until they are older. The truth is, dental care is needed as long as we have teeth, and that includes baby teeth. Parents often wonder how dental appointments work for an infant of 1 to 2 years.

Baby Teeth Matter


The American Dental Association (ADA) states that a child should receive a professional evaluation by their first birthday, or by the time their first tooth erupts. Proper infant dental care can prevent early instances of tooth decay and gum disease. It also helps us catch and correct development issues before they cause major problems for their permanent teeth.

Empower Kids to Care About Teeth


As a parent, you understand how important your child's health is, but they might not. It is often difficult to get young children to care about their health, including their oral health. Making sure your kids brush and floss can feel like an uphill battle. Fortunately, we here at SRD on 5th have some tips in this area.

Tips for Brushing


During your first appointment, or can show you the proper brushing technique for your infant or toddler. As the child grows older, we will show them the proper technique as well. Our goal is to make education fun and enjoyable, which helps your child establish better oral hygiene habits.

Toothpaste Selection


As long as they have teeth, children are at risk of tooth decay. Therefore, you must act proactively in preventing it. Many toothpastes contain fluoride, an additive meant to strengthen the enamel that baby teeth need for development. It's important to use a toothpaste that contains fluoride since tap water and bottled water don't always contain it.

Dental Sealants


A dental sealant is a very thin, plastic covering that we paint over the occlusal surface of a posterior (back) tooth. Most of the time, we place sealants over your child's permanent molars and premolars to protect them from possible tooth decay.
