Preventative Pediatric Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy, clean, and white. This helps you avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and other issues as you age which directly affects your overall body health. Preventative dental care especially benefits children because it allows their newly developing adult teeth to come in strong and healthy. It also helps create better conditions for the development of overall health and decrease their risk for certain systemic conditions affected by oral bacteria. Children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age so they can participate in their own preventive dental care.

There are many forms of preventive pediatric dentistry along with daily brushing and flossing including exams and cleaning, services like digital dental x-rays, dental sealants, space maintainers, dietary counseling, and oral hygiene instructions.

See also our Pediatric Surgical Dentistry page and our Laser Frenectomy page for information on more specialized services for children.

We are committed to providing family-friendly dental surgery tailored to your child’s unique health issues. Our pediatric dentists are up-to-date on the latest dental treatments and procedures and will always have your child’s best interest at heart.

From congenital and injury concerns to dental hygiene issues, we will provide your child with the best possible care and attention while we correct any painful or problematic dental conditions.

We will explain what will happen during the dental visit to your child at a level he or she can understand, so your child will not be scared of the procedures. During your visit, we will describe what happens using simple language, and we take the time to make your child feel at ease before any procedure.
