High-Quality Dental Care for Children
Children require professional dental care as much as adults, though the details of children’s dental care can sometimes vary from those of adult care. For example, children may be more likely to be anxious when visiting the dentist’s office, and their still-developing oral structures often require especially conservative care.
The Importance of Prevention
Preventive care for children includes a strong focus on oral health education. We help you teach your child proper brushing and flossing techniques at home, in a fun and engaging way that’s more likely to stick with them. We also perform routine checkups and cleanings on children over the age of three, which helps lessen the likelihood of tooth decay and increases our ability to diagnose problems that could occur with their primary and/or permanent teeth. By sticking to a preventive care routine, children can enjoy many benefits for their smiles, including:
- Improved oral health development
- Reduced risks of cavities that could affect their permanent teeth
- Lower risks of losing primary teeth prematurely
- Better chances of avoiding the need for restorative treatment
- And more
Restoring Young Smiles
When prevention fails to stop an issue from developing in your child’s teeth, our goal will be to restore the tooth/teeth as conservatively as possible, especially if the tooth is a baby tooth. For instance, if your child develops a cavity, we may be able to place a biocompatible, tooth-colored filling to preserve the tooth until it’s ready to fall out on its own. This also stops the decay from growing worse and potentially affecting the permanent tooth developing underneath it.
