  1. Keeping Your Child At Ease During Treatments

Half of the job of treating children patients — or any dental patient — is making them feel comfortable in the dental care. We love seeing youngsters in the office, as most of us have children of our own. In fact, the first few visits are all about making sure your child feels at ease during their visit. We make a game out of “counting teeth” and showing your kids how to brush their teeth. We even have TVs, games, and toys for your child to play with while they wait.

  1. Educating Your Children

Everyone needs a hand in developing great oral health habits. Whenever we meet with your children, we’ll show them exactly how to brush and floss their teeth. It’s important that your child brushes their teeth twice a day and for at least two minutes. In addition to visiting our office, you can also download a few free dental apps that teach your child more about their teeth. Some apps even provide guided brushing, and you can purchase toothbrushes for children that have timers that help your children brush for the appropriate amount of time.

We also provide some nutritional counseling so your child understands what foods or habits can hurt their smile.

  1. Offering Advanced Dental Prevention

Education is one part of dental prevention, but then you also have dental intervention. Whenever your child is a little older, we can begin offering dental cleanings and polishings. The cleanings remove the plaque and bacteria from the teeth, while the polishing makes it more difficult for harmful plaque and acids to stick to the surface of the tooth. Additionally, we can provide fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Fluoride has been proven to reduce the risk of tooth decay and actually repair damaged teeth, while dental sealants are placed on the biting surface — one of the most likely areas to get a cavity — and literally seal off the decay.

And do you have a little one in sports? You can come to us for a custom mouthguard. The custom mouthguards fit much better than boil-and-bite mouthguards and better protect the teeth.
