A Positive Experience for Your Child
Our entire team is dedicated to providing your child with the personalized, gentle dentistry that they deserve.
As pediatric dentists we have specialized training after dental school, and we are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years. The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. We are best qualified to meet these needs.
It is very important to maintain the health of the primary teeth. Neglected cavities can and frequently do lead to problems which affect developing permanent teeth. Primary teeth also affect the development of speech and add to an attractive appearance. While the front 4 teeth last until 6-7 years of age, the back teeth (cuspids and molars) aren’t replaced until age 10-13.
Preventive treatment includes infant lap exams, cleanings, x-rays, exams, sealants and fluoride therapy.
Restorative treatment includes fillings, crowns, pulp therapy, extractions, and limited orthodontics.
