What is preventive dentistry? Preventive dental care is the number one way to avoid major dental issues later down the road. It is the key to long-term dental health for people of all ages. Below are some of the ways our office can help you stay healthy.
Preventive Care for Children
What is the goal of preventive dentistry? Preventive dental care is especially important for children. The habits children learn while they are young will stay with them throughout their entire lives. It is important to teach your child good oral hygiene habits and proper nutrition in order to build a foundation for a healthy mouth and a healthy body for life.
We offer dental visits for children beginning around age 2. These are “Happy Visits” intended to allow your child to acclimate to our office and get a head start on being healthy. We also offer pain-free fillings for kids, as well as other services and products to prevent major dental issues. Read on to learn more about how we can help your child prevent oral health problems.
