We Care About Kids!
Our team works hard to relieve a child’s anxiety before any kind of procedure. We use cutting-edge techniques and deliver treatment with care and compassion. Our team inspires children of all ages to cultivate correct dental hygiene at home, and we teach them how to do so. We like to see them at age two for their first visit and hope to enjoy their return visits as we help them keep their natural teeth for a lifetime.
Calming Dental Fears
We desire for all of our young patients to be reassured about their dental treatment and to relish their visits through adulthood. Our many appreciative parents have told us their children find our office a pleasant and relaxed place to visit. No matter the age or needs of your children, we can assist them in conquering their dental anxieties.
Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is Like Choosing Their Pediatrician
Children’s teeth are more susceptible to cavities than adults. They often do not brush properly, and they eat more often throughout the day. As a result, acids, bacteria, and plaque will build up. If teeth are already not as clean as they need to be, additional exposure to acids from eating (acid is formed in the mouth when eating) will speed up the rate of cavity development.
We encourage parents to oversee their children’s daily dental care until they can clean their teeth properly by themselves. We advise them on how to make better nutritional choices to help care for their teeth and recommend an application of a fluoride varnish to mineralize their teeth to significantly reduce cavities.
Preventing Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!
Even the most meticulous brushing does not reach all the areas and contours of teeth. As bacteria and plaque build-up, decay will occur. Even a small amount of decay will need restoration with a filling, and for larger amounts of decay, a crown.
There is a technique that can help to reduce the development of cavities – and the application of dental sealant. This treatment is easy and quick.
The teeth are first cleaned and sterilized. A thin coating of the sealant is brushed on the surface of each tooth. This is clear and invisible. A curing light is applied to bond the sealant to the teeth. The complete procedure takes only minutes but can help to preserve children’s and adolescent’s natural teeth for a lifetime. It is painless, as no shots or drilling are necessary.
