We know that children can easily develop fears and anxiety about visiting the dentist. Our goal is to make your child’s visit as comfortable and educational as possible. Pediatric dental care helps develop a positive relationship between your child and the dentist, and it ensures that their primary teeth remain healthy and free from cavities and other problems. We recommend that you bring your child to visit the dentist as soon as their primary teeth begin to erupt, or no later than their first birthday. These initial visits are designed to help your child feel comfortable and provide you with the information you need to care for your child’s oral health.
As your child grows, continue to teach them good oral habits and bring them to our office every six months. This allows us to monitor their oral health and quickly provide treatment for any problems before they can become serious.
Preventive care is the key to a lifetime of healthy smiles! A large part of our focus is devoted to preventive care, beginning with education and continuing with professional services such as cleanings, exams, sealants and fluoride. We strongly encourage you to visit our office every six months for a routine cleaning and exam, as this will help to prevent or halt any problems before they can cause damage to your oral health and smile.
If your teeth have sustained damage due to decay, infection or injury, restorative treatments are available to help you regain a healthy smile. Our dentists will work with you to determine which treatment or combination of treatments will provide the best result for your oral health and smile. Common restorative treatments include dental fillings, dental crowns, root canal therapy, dental implants, dentures and dental bridges.
