Keeping Smiles Healthy from the Start

Your child’s oral health plays a significant part in the development and integrity of their future adult smile. That’s why our team focuses on preventive techniques and oral hygiene education, giving children the tools they need to enjoy stronger teeth.

Some of the ways we do this are through services like:

Exams and X-rays — Routine evaluations are important to monitor your child’s oral development and identify concerns or problems in the earlier stages.

Gentle Cleanings — Our hygienists love working with children. During your child’s cleaning, they will discuss forming good habits like tooth brushing and show them new ways to keep their smile clean.

Dental Sealants — The deep grooves and pits of the back adult teeth (molars) are at a higher risk of collecting bacteria and thus are some of the first areas to decay. Sealing them off makes these teeth easier to clean each day.

Fluoride Treatments — Stronger enamel is more resistant to decay. A fluoride application can also reverse early demineralization in teeth.

Mouthguards — Sports injuries can be common in children, especially to the mouth and teeth. A custom made appliance can help reduce the risk of dental accidents and trauma.

Fillings— Catching cavities or dental decay early on is important in our littlest clients. We encourage regular visits from 12 months of age or whenever you notice something that you are unsure of.

Orthodontic Evaluations — Monitoring your child’s bite development provides us with an opportunity to offer interceptive services, potentially avoiding more complex treatments in the future.
