The Focus of Children’s Dentistry
Just like adults, children of all ages should visit the dentist at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings. Younger children may require extra assistance to help prevent common dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease until they become accustomed to taking care of their teeth by themselves at home. We recommend children begin their dental journey just after their second birthday. Our office is fully equipped to meet your child’s dental needs, and our staff is highly experienced at helping protect you and your child’s smiles.
Prevention and Correction
Children’s dentistry primarily focuses on prevention and education. When your child visits us for an appointment, we will provide a warm and welcoming environment and help you and your child understand what is happening during the visit and how to practice good dental hygiene at home. We offer treatments to help protect against tooth decay, such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments. We also offer restorative options to repair any damage that has occurred.
