As our team strives to have children feel relaxed at each visit, we welcome your whole family. We administer the latest advancements in technology for your children in a caring and thoughtful way, so there will be no fear in our little patients. Our hygienists also instruct children in good dental care so they will have healthy teeth for a lifetime. Our doctors look forward to seeing them for their first dental visit when they’re three years old and watching them grow year after year.
A Happy Visit is a Fearless Visit
According to our parents, our office is a happy place with a relaxed atmosphere that makes children want to visit us. We make it a point to have children grow up without fear of their dental appointments. No matter what the age of your child, we will make their dental work a good experience for them.
Instilling Good Dental Habits in Your Kids
With the use of the latest technology and a fun and comfortable office environment, we wish to encourage a lifetime of good dental hygiene in your child. Children’s teeth are more susceptible to cavities due to certain factors:
- They do not do an adequate job of brushing. Parents should be a part of a child’s daily dental hygiene to help them develop good habits.
- Children eat more often, which results in prolonged exposure to acid (acid is created whenever you eat) with the end result of more cavities.
- If a tooth is not as clean as it needs to be, when it is exposed to more food and juice, it will more easily have cavities develop.
A combination of good dietary and hygiene habits along with the application of a fluoride varnish will greatly reduce the chance of cavities.
Preventing Decay in Your Child’s Teeth
Even meticulous brushing may not reach all the grooves and contours in teeth. Areas that are missed will have a build-up of bacteria, plaque, and acids that lead to decay. When decay has begun, the tooth is permanently damaged and needs a crown or filling. Today, we can apply dental sealants to help prevent this from happening.
This is the way it works:
After the tooth is cleaned and sterilized, we apply a clear, thin, plastic coat. A curing light is used on the sealant so it will form a bond with the tooth. The procedure is painless and takes only a few minutes, and no shots or drills are used. The entire tooth remains healthy and intact. This is the best preventive measure for both children and adolescents to preserve their teeth.
