Expert Dentistry for Kids & Teens

Keeping your family's oral health on track requires routine check-ups, cleanings, and other preventive services. At our dental practice, we focus on monitoring your child's oral health starting at age 12. We are right next door to a pediatric dentist and an orthodontist for your convenience. We collaborate to ensure treatment is provided early enough to avoid future complications. Our services for kids and teens include:

  • Cleanings: Regular professional cleanings remove any plaque or tartar deposits from your child's teeth, helping to prevent tooth decay. We recommend cleanings twice a year to supplement daily brushing and flossing.
  • Fillings: In the case of cavities, we can remove the decay and place a high-quality filling to minimize the chances of further damage.
  • Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride treatments slow the growth of cavities and help reduce the risks of developing more. It strengthens the enamel to prevent the need for complex dental work in the future.
  • Sealants: If your child has a tooth that is vulnerable to decay, we can apply sealants to create a barrier that keeps food and bacteria from building up on the enamel.
  • Simple Extractions: If a tooth is badly damaged and there are no other treatment options left, we may suggest a dental extraction. This treatment will prevent decay from moving to other teeth.

In addition to preventive treatments, our team monitors your child's dental development and educates them about dental hygiene, routine maintenance, and proper diet. We also offer after-hours emergency appointments to resolve dental concerns as quickly as possible.
