Special Room for Children’s Appointments:
We have a special treat for the children that visit our office! We have a room especially designed and decorated for our small patients. Ashleigh is in charge of our pediatric program, and the patients thoroughly enjoy their visit to her special room. When leaving, patients are given a “goody bag” with a new toothbrush
Regular Recare Appointments:
We encourage parents to schedule their child’s next six-month recare appointment before leaving our office.
Kodak Digital Radiography:
We utilize the Kodak digital radiography system for all our X-rays. Digital X-rays use much less radiation than standard film. Bitewing X-rays are taken to check for cavities between teeth. Panoramic X-rays allow us to see if all the permanent teeth are in place to erupt properly.
Evaluation for Orthodontics:
Children are checked for the need of orthodontic care. We have an orthodontist in our office that we refer for orthodontic treatment.
Children are given a fluoride treatment at their appointments to make their teeth more resistant to decay. Occasionally, home fluoride is recommended if there is a high decay rate.
Sealants on Permanent Molars:
Children are evaluated for the need of dental sealants. Sealants are placed on the chewing surfaces of posterior permanent molars. The sealant seals the grooves in the teeth to help prevent decay. We usually recommend sealing all six-year and twelve-year molars.
