Family Block Appointments
We understand that making several trips to the dentist for multiple appointments can be both time-consuming and stressful. In an effort to eliminate unnecessary hassle, we offer family block scheduling. What does that mean? It means you can get every member of your family into our office at the same time. This scheduling convenience is especially helpful for nervous kiddos. Seeing their siblings or family members have a positive experience in the dental chair encourages them to do the same!
Services for Smaller Smiles
Our approach to kids’ dentistry places a heavy emphasis on preventive care and eliminating problem areas before they become larger dental issues. We offer a variety of dental treatments to safeguard their teeth and gums and keep them on the path to great oral health for the rest of their lifetime.
Routine Exams & Cleanings
Bringing your child into our office every six months is one of the most important aspects of their dental hygiene routine. This allows us to accurately monitor their development and recognize any problem areas before they get out of hand. Each visit will consist of a thorough cleaning and any additional preventive treatments they may need.
For children who need a bit of extra protection against cavities and decay, additional fluoride can be applied in the form of a gel, foam, or varnish. Fluoride is a natural mineral that strengthens a tooth’s enamel and helps ward off cavity-causing bacteria. After fluoride is applied, make sure your child refrains from eating for at least 30 minutes.
A dental sealant is a plastic-like coating that protects your kiddo’s tiny teeth from cavities and decay. Teeth are filled with small crevices that accumulate bacteria and leftover food particles, leading to damage. Sealants are painted onto the crowns of the teeth, most often the molars, to lock out this bacteria and food.
We offer customized mouthguards to place a protective barrier between the top and bottom rows of your child’s teeth. Whether it’s for contact sports or to protect against nighttime teeth grinding, a personalized fit offers the most comprehensive protection.
