Taking Care After The Holidays

Christmas is right around the corner, which means you will not be able to squeeze in your next visit until after the holiday. This is a great time of year to come in. You can start the New Year off knowing that your young ones have had their first dentist appointment, and you can also rest easy once everyone’s dental problems have been addressed.

At your kid’s checkup, we will look for cavities and make sure that they have been taking good care of their pearly whites. If we notice any problems, we can help by giving them better tips on brushing.

Restoring Problems

Cavities and decay are one of the most common problems that your little ones will face. This can be due to a combination of learning how to properly care for teeth and eating sugary snacks. To help combat dental decay, we can offer fluoride treatment or sealants after cleanings. Fluoride is applied after a dental cleaning and strengthens your enamel against cavity-causing bacteria. Sealants are thin, protective coatings that protect the surfaces of the back molars which are hard for kids to reach.

If your child still has a cavity, do not worry, we can still help. A filling can be used to restore the damaged tooth. During this process, the decayed part of the tooth will be removed. This leaves a clean area on the surface, where we will then add a material made of composite resin. This helps stop cavities from spreading further. Do not worry, this will also blend in naturally with your tooth.

How We Make The Appointment More Enjoyable

Many kids do not like visiting the dentist, and we understand this. To help create a more positive experience for everyone, we have techniques that are soothing and kid friendly. We have blankets, pillows, TVs, and educational coloring books available for kids of all ages to enjoy.

We will also offer tips and tricks to make oral hygiene more fun for your young ones. This helps bring you peace of mind knowing that your kids are in good hands with our staff.
