Tooth decay is one of those things that most adults our age have learned to live with. We get a cavity and then we get a filling. That’s just the way it is. But modern dentistry can take active steps to prevent permanent teeth from getting cavities early. We encourage your child to take their dental hygiene seriously and with fluoride treatments and sealant, we can prevent many of the problems that we had to endure as we entered our 20’s and 30’s.
Sealants prevent plaque and bacteria from building up in the grooves of molars which, as you know, are the first teeth to go. Fluoride treatments strengthen teeth and help teeth build new enamel. This prevents cavities down the road.
It’s possible that your child may be scared of dentists. That’s OK. Sometimes, we scare ourselves and each other. If your child is uncomfortable with dental procedures, we can administer sedatives to help them through the process. Maybe afterward, they won’t be so afraid of the mean old dentists.
We also provide basic services to children including:
- Wisdom teeth removal
- And periodontal care.
