Great Oral Health Starts At A Young Age
Just as adults should visit the dentist every six months for exams and cleanings, so should children. We see kids starting as young as 1 or when their first tooth appears. However, regular exam and cleaning appointments aren’t necessary until the age of three. In addition to a professional checkup and cleaning, we might also suggest fluoride treatment, which bolsters your child’s tooth enamel, or dental sealants that create a barrier between your child’s teeth and the bacteria that could harm them.
Gentle Tooth Restoration
If your child develops a cavity or suffers damage to one or more teeth, then a custom restoration may be necessary to protect and preserve your child’s smile. To provide optimal results and encourage proper growth and development of your child’s teeth, we can design a conservative, biocompatible solution to address most tooth concerns. For example, a tooth-colored composite resin filling can treat a cavity discreetly, or a custom-made porcelain crown can restore a damaged tooth.
