Early intervention is the best prevention. There is no child too young to be examined. Babies are born without the bacteria that causes cavities and we want to keep it that way!
If your child has never had a cavity we want to keep it that way. If your child has had a cavity we want to prevent that from happening again. Having routine visits and the right home care is the key to success.
The materials used to restore teeth have greatly improved over the last 20 years. We use the best techniques and materials. The new materials are white and they can release fluoride and prevent recurrence. Often no local anesthesia is required, meaning no shot!
Our goal is to have your child maintain a beautiful smile well into adulthood. As your child ages their needs change and we teach them what needs to be done in order to have a healthy mouth.
We counsel on a number of things that might come up during a child's growing years. Injury prevention while participating in sports, habits like thumb sucking and pacifiers and when to visit the orthodontist just to name a few.
