We are not a “drill and fill” office. As such, we place a strong emphasis on prevention. The main goal of preventive treatment is to minimize dental caries and to prevent malocclusions (crooked teeth).
Regular dental visits help your child stay cavity-free. Dental cleanings remove debris that build up on the teeth and harbor cavity-causing bacteria. Gingivitis (gum imflammation and periodontistis – gum/bone disease) are also prevented by regular dental cleanings.
Fluoride treatments renew the fluoride content in the enamel, strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. Individualized and regular oral hygiene instructions provide direction and motivation to both parents and children leading to more effective brushing and flossing, cleaner teeth and healthier gums.
