We are pleased to be able to treat every member of a family – from little children to senior citizens. – with care appropriate to the individual’s needs, objectives and budget. Dentists and hygienists work together to accomplish the best outcomes.
Starting when your child turns 3, we welcome him or her to our office and carefully check on the development of the smile that will be your child’s lifelong greeting. Our kind and gentle hygienists teach careful brushing that becomes a life-long habit, preserving teeth and enhancing smiles.
Children may also benefit from the application of sealants and fluoride treatments when their adult teeth come in, to help strengthen tooth structure and avoid early decay. While the mineral fluoride promotes the growth of strong teeth, sealants provide a physical barrier on the chewing surfaces of teeth and help prevent decay from food particles that land there. Sealants are generally invisible once applied to the teeth. (Occasionally, adults may require the same type of treatment.)
If young athletes play contact sports, they may need mouth guards to prevent broken teeth. These guards are custom-fitted for each child.
