Gentle teeth cleaning
Regular cleanings are an important part of keeping your child’s teeth healthy. This sort of preventative dental care can help head off problems like cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease before they start. Our dentists will gently clean your child’s teeth while making sure they feel safe and comfortable during the visit.
Safe oral sedation
If your child feels nervous about visiting the dentist, we can help! Not only do we work to create a relaxed, welcoming environment for all of our guests, but we also offer oral sedation options to help soothe any nerves. Typically taken in pill form, oral sedation will help put your child into a calm, drowsy state during their appointment to help them feel more comfortable. For additional support, we can also offer nitrous oxide during procedures.
Did you know that tooth enamel (the hard surface of your teeth) wears down over time? Fluoride treatments can help with what is called remineralization, or the process of strengthening enamel that has begun to wear away. Our dentists recommend regular fluoride treatments for your child to help prevent cavities and tooth decay and keep their enamel strong and healthy.
Sealants are plastic coverings applied directly on top of your child’s teeth to help protect the tooth structure and prevent cavities. These typically go in the grooves of the teeth that are used for chewing, as those are often missed during brushing.
If your child needs a cavity filled, we can take care of it quickly and gently. We use tooth-colored fillings made from a safe, non-toxic material called composite. These blend in with your child’s natural teeth, so the fillings won’t stand out.
For teeth that are heavily damaged, we can place a crown to restore function and protect the remaining tooth structure. Crowns are made from strong, durable porcelain, look like your child’s natural teeth, and can help restore their ability to eat and chew normally. We use advanced CEREC technology to make same-day crowns, so your child won’t have to wait weeks to get their bite back.
Care for special needs children
We offer a warm welcome to all special needs children! Our experienced team provides gentle, friendly care and will make it a priority to help your child feel safe and comfortable during their visit.
Low-radiation digital x-rays
While X-rays are an important diagnostic tool for all dentists, we understand that you may have concerns about exposure to radiation. Your child’s safety is our top priority, which is why our practice uses low-radiation digital x-rays. These emit up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays and offer a clear, accurate picture of what is going on inside your child’s mouth.
We rise by lifting others
Our team understands the importance of contributing to our community. Each of us strives to be kind and helpful in all of our dealings and works to give back to those around us. We are deeply committed to making a positive impact on you and your family and invite you to schedule an appointment using our online booking system today!
