Dentistry for Kids
We provide general dentistry services for children of all ages at our practice. In addition to regular cleanings, exams, and fillings, we provide preventive services to children as well. These include sealants and fluoride treatments.
Sealants are applied in a simple, painless procedure. Dental sealants are a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth. They fill the deep grooves of the teeth to keep bacteria out. They are usually painted on the back teeth (premolars and molars) to protect teeth from cavities.
Fluoride varnish is a highly concentrated form of fluoride that is applied directly to the teeth. It is typically a pale yellow gel that sets quickly when applied to children’s teeth using a soft brush. Fluoride provides teeth with extra protection against cavities, and we will apply fluoride twice a year when your child comes for their cleanings.
