Children’s Dentistry

Comfortable Dentistry for Children of All Ages

One of the most important parts of keeping young smiles healthy is teaching children to properly brush and floss their teeth every day. However, good hygiene also requires regular visits to the dentist for checkup and cleaning appointments. At our office, we offer a variety of children’s dentistry services to help keep young smiles in excellent shape. Our caring and compassionate team is experienced at helping children become comfortable with visiting the dentist, as well as teaching children and parents how to keep their smiles healthy at home.

Treatments Designed Specifically for Young Smiles

Dental health care for children isn’t completely different from adult dental health care. Both focus on prevention, which requires routine dental exams and professional cleanings. However, children’s smiles are still developing, and therefore, much of their professional dental care focuses on improving that development. For instance, if your child’s tooth enamel is particularly weak, then we can recommend fluoride treatment to strengthen it against the formation of a cavity. We can also suggest placing dental sealants, or thin layers of biocompatible acrylic, over the chewing surfaces of some teeth to prevent oral bacteria and food particles from accumulating. If your child exhibits malocclusion (an imbalanced bite), then the dentist may recommend early orthodontic treatment to promote straighter, healthier growth and development.
