Children just like adults should be seen by a dentist twice a year so your dentist can detect and correct problems early. And by establishing a pattern of regular treatment and quick attention to small problems before they expand, you and your dentist can ensure a lifetime of good oral health for your children.
Tooth decay in children often leads to pain and infection, sometimes requiring the tooth to be extracted. By regularly treating teeth – for example, sealing permanent molars with a special coating soon after they erupt to prevent tooth decay from developing, and by applying fluoride to the teeth for added protection – you are investing in your child’s smile for life.
24-80’s pediatric specialists are trained in the latest techniques for children, who can be treated under sedation or general anesthesia if necessary to assure their comfort during their visit to the dentist. And our friendly administrative staff are skilled at easing the concerns of the youngest patient.
