Nurturing Optimal Oral Health for Kids
We love working with families, especially kids! Our children’s dentistry program shows kids that dental care can be fun and helps them – and their parents – learn the proper way to care for their teeth. Our office regularly cares for the dental needs of children as young as two years old.
Getting Kids Used to the Dentist
You may want to bring your child to your dental checkup when he or she is about two so that your child can become familiar with the sights, sounds, and friendly helpers in our dental office. We call this a Happy Visit. Your child’s independent checkup at age three will involve a tooth-by-tooth inspection. The dentist will check for proper development, as well as tooth decay and other areas of concern.
As your child grows, he or she will need regular checkups and hygiene visits to ensure optimal oral health. Our team will also teach oral homecare techniques so that your child can learn how to effectively brush and floss, with your help at first, then on his or her own.
Sealants & Flouride Rinses
The dentist may recommend dental sealants or fluoride rinses for your child. Sealants are thin, clear coatings that protect hard-to-clean back teeth from the sugars that cause tooth decay. Fluoride rinses are another way we protect tooth enamel and help ward off cavities.
