“Thank you for the great care of myself and my three young children all in one visit. I know that I can trust that my children are being well taken care of while I am having my appointment.” — Sandra H.
Establish Dental Health Habits Early
We start treating children at approximately age 3, but it is common and encouraged for parents to bring their children with them to dental checkups for a couple of visits prior to the child being seen. This helps your child get used to the process and become comfortable with the dentists and hygienists.
In addition to providing a welcoming, relaxed environment, our team also strives to educate our younger patients about establishing good dental hygiene habits. Encouraging these habits early on builds the foundation for long-term dental health. For more information on specific care of children’s teeth, review our information on dental hygiene for children.
Protect Your Child’s Teeth
To help prevent cavities, we offer sealants and fluoride treatments for our young patients.
Sealants protect the grooves and depressions on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Almost 90 percent of cavities in school-aged children in America are caused because food and bacteria build up in this hard-to-clean area.
Fluoride treatments can help teeth become stronger and resistant to decay. The staff at Wood Creek Dental can help you determine when these treatments may be appropriate for your child.
