When it comes to children’s dentistry, providing a comfortable experience is just as important as delivering high quality care. We want all of the little smiles who come through our doors to feel completely relaxed from check-in to checkout while we provide the personalized services they deserve. Whether you have a toddler, teenager, or someone in between at home, know that they are always welcome to our practice! To schedule your child’s next appointment, contact us today.
Your child’s routine appointments will be tailored to their age, oral development, and unique personality so we can provide the most effective care possible. Younger patients will receive gentle exams and cleanings, and as a child grows, their visits will begin to more closely resemble your own. Along the way, we’ll fix any cavities or damaged teeth that develop and provide helpful tips so they know how to care for their smile at home.
While it’s possible for any tooth to develop a cavity, the back teeth in particular are vulnerable due to their location and wide, grooved surfaces that easily trap food and bacteria. To keep these teeth safe, we can apply a clear, thin layer of a plastic-based substance that quickly hardens into an invisible barrier. This will prevent anything from damaging the enamel. Patients of all ages can benefit from sealants, but they are especially useful for children while they are still learning to brush.
It’s easy to find fluoride if you look for it, as it’s added to the overwhelming majority of oral healthcare products. That’s because this helpful mineral actually strengthens the enamel and repairs minor damage whenever it’s exposed to the teeth, drastically lowering someone’s risk of decay and cavities. As part of your child’s routine checkups, we can give them a topical fluoride treatment that only takes about a minute, but it will go a long way in keeping their teeth healthy until we can see them again.
Sports-related dental injuries are extremely common for athletes of all ages, but fortunately, preventing them isn’t that complicated. By simply wearing a mouthguard, a young athlete can protect their teeth from unexpected impacts on the field or ice, giving parents one less thing to worry about. We can custom-design a mouthguard just for your child that’s both comfortable and extremely strong so they can stay safe while they stay in the game.
