We Care About Kids!
A Lifetime of Healthy Smiles
Our team strives to make children of all ages feel at ease and enjoy themselves, so bring the whole family along! You can rest assured your child will receive the latest advancements in children’s dentistry, delivered with caring, thoughtfulness, and compassion.
We encourage the proper dental care habits in children and enjoy teaching them how to keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime. We look forward to seeing them for their first visit with us when they are eight months old and then watching them grow year after year.
Engineering Straighter Teeth
Traditional orthodontics typically involve the use of metal or possibly ceramic braces. Steady, gentle pressure in the direction of desired change will correct the position of teeth over time. This allows for better dental hygiene, less risk of damage, a more even bite, and an overall healthier smile.
Here’s How it Works
Stainless steel, titanium, or ceramic brackets are bonded to the tooth. These brackets work as handles to which other components are attached to move your tooth in various directions. A skinny metal wire known as an archwire connects to each bracket. Using tension, these wires place pressure on your teeth to move them into place. Colorful (or clear) elastic bands are stretched to hold the archwires to the brackets. As adjustments are needed, archwires of various diameters are tensioned and ligature elastics are changed.
One of our goals is to make sure that this and future generations of children grow up without a fear of the dental office. According to our many happy parents, we are doing just that! Our office is a relaxed and happy place that children love to visit. Whether you have an active six-year-old or a scared three-year-old, we are here to help you.
Instilling Good Habits Early
We strive to create an environment that’s comfortable and fun and teach both parents and kids good oral hygiene habits. It’s important for parents to be involved in their child’s daily dental care to ensure both thorough cleaning and the development of proper dental habits when they’re little.
Easy Prevention of Child Tooth Decay
Even meticulous brushing often may not reach the deep grooves in the back teeth. This results in bacteria, acid, and plaque formation, which will lead to decay that requires a filling or crown. Dental sealants can help! This thin plastic coating is white or clear and bonded into place with no shots or drills or removal of any tooth structure. Applying dental sealants is one of the best preventive things both children and adolescents can do to preserve their natural teeth!
