Our office is here to help your children have the very best oral health,
and they do so with the latest advancements in children's dentistry. Our
team also teaches them how to maintain healthy teeth and gums at home with
proper brushing and flossing.
We want all children to have no fear of dental care. We administer our services with thoughtfulness, and our practice is a happy place to visit. We enjoy a child's first visit as soon as they cut their first tooth, and continue caring for them throughout their formative years. According to our parents, we are successful in achieving our goals, whether a child has fear or is just very active.
We want our young patients to understand the importance of keeping their
teeth and gums healthy. We teach both parents and children that children's
teeth are quite prone to cavities and emphasize the reasons for this
Children often have not yet acquired the best habits in daily dental hygiene. We encourage parents to be a part of their daily care and supervise so that they brush and floss properly until they can do so on their own.
Kids eat more often throughout the day, and each time this exposes their teeth to the acid produced to digest food. Teeth that are not well brushed encourages development of more acid, which in turn leads to cavities. The cycle increases how rapidly cavities develop as well as the number of them. We advise on better, more nutritious food choices, better daily care, and a mineralizing varnish to keep cavities at a minimum.
Even when kids are good brushers and diligent flossers, the deep grooves
of back teeth can collect bacteria and are most prone to cavities. We
recommend a proven and effective treatment to help preserve natural teeth.
One coating of a dental sealant is one of the best preventive treatments.
It is quick and easy, and the whole procedure takes just minutes.
After the teeth are cleaned and sterilized, one thin coating of the sealant is applied. This mineralizing varnish is clear or white in color and invisible on the teeth. With a curing light, the dentist bonds the sealant to the teeth – and that is the whole procedure! No shots, drilling, or tooth removal is needed.
Sealants protect both children's and adolescents' teeth to help keep them cavity free for a lifetime when combined with regular professional cleanings and good daily hygiene.
