Dental Care for Kids
As a parent, you look after the wellbeing of your children. Part of this responsibility means caring for their physical health, including their teeth. Because your kids have the potential to keep their natural teeth throughout, you need to start them out right with early childhood dental visits.
Our dentists recommend that children begin routine visits by age three, but if you notice any oral health issues before age three, please don’t hesitate to call us. During “happy visits”, we will examine your child’s mouth and talk about the importance of brushing and flossing. By starting early, we can build a good rapport with our youngest patients, which will help them develop positive ideas about dental visits.
Most of the time, we recommend dental sealants to protect molars from tooth decay. Thin coatings of plastic, dental sealants protect the grooves and pits in back teeth, shielding them from food and bacteria. Sealants take mere minutes to apply, and they’re simply painted on to teeth, then dried. They dissolve naturally over time, so your child won’t need to come in to have them removed. Sealants could significantly decrease the number of cavities your child experiences.
