Helping children understand how their teeth work and how to keep them healthy is key to lifelong dental health. While our staff helps educate you and your child about the ways they can avoid potential problems, we also perform routine procedures such as fluoride treatment and bonding.
Here you can find these procedures and an explanation of how each helps your child maintain their dental health.
Fluoride is a terrific tool used to make your child’s teeth healthy and strong. Fluoride naturally binds to calcium and makes teeth more dense and less prone to cavities. The treatment is short, but is exceptionally important for your child’s health. In fact, the American Dental Association recommends fluoride treatments since it naturally protects your child’s teeth from the acid attacks which cause tooth decay.

Children with Special Needs
Getting appropriate dental care is important for all children, but can also be more difficult for children with special challenges. Our staff provides extra special attention for your child to make sure they not only get the right treatment, but have a positive experience during their dental visit.
Sometimes accidents happen and your child may chip or damage a tooth. Our staff are aware of these circumstances and provide dental bonding as a quick, easy option to repair any damaged teeth. During bonding, a tooth-colored resin is applied to the teeth to fill in any damaged areas. This can repair decayed, chipped, fractured, or discolored teeth.
Because the resin is the same color as your child’s tooth they won’t even be able to tell the difference. This procedure is also very simple and can be done in a single visit, so you don’t have to worry about scheduling multiple visits to repair your child’s teeth.
Bonding is one of the cheapest and easiest cosmetic dental procedures. Although it is mostly used to keep your child’s teeth looking nice, it can also protect the root of teeth if they have become exposed.
