Preventive dentistry for a healthy smile
We believe that the best way to avoid dental problems is to prevent them! Preventive dentistry means a healthy smile for your little ones. We take particular care in providing preventive strategies that will give your child a greater chance of a cavity-free childhood. As pediatric dental specialists, we are trained to help families develop the best personalized in office and at-home preventive care routines. This will lay the foundation for good oral health. Preventive care starts with a global assessment of your child’s dental health, dietary habits and cavity risk.
Preventive care may also include cleanings and fluoride applications. The application of sealants is another great strategy to prevent cavities on certain adult teeth. They’re simple and non-invasive dental treatments that protect the grooves and pitted surfaces of teeth, especially the chewing surfaces of back teeth.
Other preventive strategies
Other preventive strategies include sports safety by selecting the proper mouth guard for your child. We also provide early diagnosis and care for orthodontic problems. This includes the growth and alignment of the teeth and jaws. We take particular pride in working closely with a team of orthodontists, who could not be closer as we share the same office!
