Pediatric Dentistry Services
Visiting the dentist is an important part of maintaining a healthy and vibrant smile, and along with proper hygiene at home, it’s one of the most significant things you can teach your children. Pediatric dentistry describes diagnostic, preventive, educational, and other services designed specifically for younger children. We offer a warm, lighthearted, and fun atmosphere that makes children feel comfortable and welcome every time they visit. With a strong focus on education and prevention, the goal of our pediatric services is to give children the knowledge and tools they need to maintain excellent oral health for life.
What Pediatric Dentistry Means
The tenets of pediatric dentistry are the same as those of preventive dental care for adults. By the age of three, children should begin a regular schedule of exams and cleanings with their dentist to effectively prevent or control potentially harmful dental issues. Because children may be less successful in maintaining good hygiene between visits, their dentist may also suggest additional preventive treatments. For instance, fluoride treatment can strengthen the enamel around children’s teeth to better prevent cavity formation. Dental sealants can be applied to the chewing surfaces of their molars to block the accumulation of plaque, tartar, and food debris.
