At Prospect Family Dental, we love treating children and cherish the chance we may get to care for your child's oral health. Our caring team features family dentists who can offer the top pediatric solutions to keep your young ones smile strong and healthy for years to come.
We typically recommend that you schedule you child's first appointment before they reach 3 years old, or even sooner if you notice particular issues. We will examine their smile gently to check for proper alignment and development, and then suggest any possible prevention or treatment options.
Dental Sealants and Fluoride Treatments
In order to help prevent cavities in young patients, we will often recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Sealants are thin, plastic coatings that go over the grooves of the teeth- creating a surface that is easier to clean and repeal decay.
Fluoride is also another powerful way to defeat cavities. If you drink exclusively bottled water, instead of tap water, you could be losing out on this mineral. We have the ability to apply fluoride directly to the teeth of your child to strengthen and protect them. We also have this treatment option available for adults.
