CHILDREN’S PREVENTIVE DENTAL CARE
It’s a well known fact that goes double for children’s dentistry: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of treatment! Kid’s preventive dentistry can prolong the health of your child’s teeth and stop painful or costly problems from getting worse or even developing in the first place.Schedule an Appointment
Let our team of professional children’s dental care experts help your child keep their natural teeth healthy for years to come with preventive treatments. With any of these simple, painless options, you could save money and your child from the discomfort of prolonged dental treatment in the future.
Our preventive treatments are designed to keep your child as comfortable as possible while strengthening and cleaning their teeth—so no more worrying about future dental problems! We offer services like:
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that hardens the enamel layer on the outside of the teeth, which can be weakened by harmful acids and bacteria over time. Our fluoride treatment comes in the form of a flavored paste that sits on your child’s teeth for a few minutes at a time, building up enamel and slowing decay.
Sealants are a good option for young children who may still be getting the hang of their daily oral healthcare routine. Sealants are a thin layer of plastic-like resin that sits over the top of your child’s teeth, and is then hardened by a special UV light. Sealants keep bacteria, acid, and plaque from directly contacting your child’s teeth.
SDF stands for Silver Diamine Fluoride and it’s ideal for young children or others who are uncomfortable sitting for prolonged dental treatment. SDF comes in the form of a powerful antimicrobial rinse that fights the microorganisms that cause tooth and gum decay.
