Children's Dental Care
We are a family dentist, meaning we are ready to handle the needs of patients of all ages. We do this for your convenience, so that you and your entire family can get dental care in one place. We are firm believers that good dental hygiene habits start at an early age, which is why it is crucial to teach your kiddos the importance of brushing, flossing, and seeing the dentist regularly. We recommend that you start bringing your children to the dentist when they are around one year old, but feel free to come earlier if you have any concerns about their mouths.
We have many different services to help keep your child healthy and their smile happy. We provide fluoride treatment, which is an effective way to prevent the development of cavities for months at a time. Dental sealants are another service we have, which we primarily recommend for children and teens. Dental sealants are essentially thin coatings of a plastic-like material that we pain onto your children’s teeth. This acts like a raincoat and seals out any food and bacteria that would otherwise get caught. The ridges and grooves in the back molars are often hard to effectively brush and floss and food can easily become trapped in these spaces. This is especially true for young children, whose brushing skills are still developing. Dental sealants are a great way to avoid cavities and to protect your kiddos smiles for years to come.
We believe that dental education is incredibly important for developing good dental hygiene practices. Because of this, we offer educational lessons on brushing and flossing techniques at our office. We are passionate about your children's’ dental care and are eager to set them up for future success by teaching them good habits early on. If your child is old enough to come see the dentist, schedule an appointment with us today.
