Will Preventive Dentistry benefit my child?

 

Yes! Your child will benefit from the preventive approach recommended for all children – effective brushing and flossing, moderate snacking and adequate fluoride intake.  Home care takes just a few minutes a day and prevents needless dental problems. Regular professional cleanings and fluoride treatments by our staff and doctors are also very beneficial.  In addition to regular cleanings, sealants on the biting surfaces of your child’s teeth are highly recommended to protect against decay because this area is where four out of five cavities occur in children.
