Children’s Dentistry

Teaching children to care for their teeth properly is one of the most important things we can do for their long-term dental health. It is also important to help them feel at ease with regular dental visits. We recommend bringing a child for their first visit around the age of two, and starting a routine of regular exams and cleanings by the age of three. We understand that young children have dental needs that differ from older teens and adults, and we take care to provide services that are tailored to those needs.

Providing The Right Support For Younger Smiles

Regular dental exams and cleanings are important at any age. With that said, a child’s first few visits can be difficult for them simply because they are unfamiliar with oral health care. Our office takes the time to ease them into this kind of care. From the time they arrive, we strive to make their experience in our practice a comfortable one by offering a friendly welcome and amenities to make waiting more pleasant. Our doctors and team members will gently introduce younger children to our office, tools, and treatments to remove the mystery from care. As they grow older, we can shift our focus to education, helping them develop better hygiene habits to practice at home!

Fluoride Treatments

Enamel is a remarkably strong substance, which helps people of all ages avoid issues like dental decay and damage. While kids have approximately the same natural protection from their enamel as adults, their inexperience with smile care and oral hygiene can raise their risk for dental problems. Fluoride treatments boost the strength of tooth enamel – the protective layer of minerals that shield teeth from cavity-causing plaque and tartar. If your child is at risk of cavities, then fluoride treatments (coupled with regular cleanings and improved hygiene habits) can help lower their risk.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are a more direct form of protection for teeth. Sealants are thin layers of biocompatible acrylic that are painted onto one or more molars’ chewing surfaces. They provide an additional layer of protection against harmful oral bacteria and prevent food and plaque from becoming stuck in the molar’s grooves.
