We strive to
keep up with the latest advancements in children’s dentistry, and we deliver them with care and thoughtfulness. Your children
will be comfortable during visits to our office. We also teach them the importance of maintaining their smiles. We enjoy
seeing them during their regular visits and helping them to have healthy teeth for a lifetime.
We work to make sure children are relaxed during their visits so they don’t fear going to the dentist. As many of our parents have told us, we are achieving those goals. The atmosphere in our office is calm and cheerful, and our youngest patients enjoy their visits. Regardless of how anxious your child might be, we are here to make it easy for everyone.
Children may have difficulty brushing properly. With all the grooves and contours in the back teeth, surface areas may be missed and improperly cleaned. When bacteria and plaque form on a tooth, decay begins. Once there is decay, a filling is required, or if there is a lot of decay, a crown will be necessary for a restoration. The solution for this problem is an application of dental sealants on all the teeth. Here is how this easy this treatment works: After the teeth are cleaned and sterilized, a transparent coating of dental sealant is applied. A curing light is used to bond the sealant. No shots or drills are required and the entire process takes just minutes. This sealant helps to prevent cavities for both children and adolescents.
Teeth change over the years, just as our bodies do. Over time, teeth may become stained or plaque builds up, leading to health problems from infected gums. Some medications may cause dry mouth or reduced saliva flow. Fillings crack or degrade over time. We can help to prevent these types of problems with regular checkups. Good daily hygiene and proper eating are also important to maintain or prevent tooth decay or tooth loss. If your gums become red or start to bleed and/or teeth begin to loosen, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
If a tooth is damaged or infected, it used to require extraction. But with today’s dentistry and advanced technology, we can save the tooth with a root canal. Using this procedure, the pulp chamber is removed and replaced with a dental filling. With anesthetics, root canal therapy is manageable and no longer dreaded like it was in the past.
