Providing affordable dental care for the entire family is our mission at Independent Dental Care. We love helping children and teens maintain positive oral health and great-looking smiles. Our experts know how important it is for young people to receive proper dental care early in life. Children who receive regular dental visits when they are young are more likely to continue practicing good oral care habits when they grow older. They will also have a better chance of maintaining positive oral health into their adult years. That is why it is critical bring your children in for regular dental visits as soon as their first teeth begin to emerge.
We also strive to make children feel comfortable when they visit. We make sure to put on our friendly faces and use our gentlest touch. Additionally, we can also provide blankets and pillows to help your child feel more relaxed while treatment is provided. And with family scheduling, every member of your family can conveniently receive treatment at the same time.
We offer the following pediatric dental services at Independent Dental Care:
- Sealants: Dental sealants are an acrylic coating that is applied over the surface of one’s back teeth to protect them from harmful bacteria and acids. They also smooth out the rough surfaces that are present on teeth and make them easier to clean and maintain. By applying dental sealants, a child’s teeth are more likely to remain healthy as they continue to properly develop their brushing and flossing habits.
- Fluoride Applications: One of the most effective natural substances for strengthening teeth is fluoride. For a fluoride application, this substance is applied directly to a child’s teeth. This will help to strengthen tooth enamel and reverse any early effects of tooth decay. Fluoride applications are very easy to provide, and the process can often be completed alongside a dental checkup.
- Fillings: Cavities are extremely common in children, and our team is always ready to provide a filling if needed. We offer composite tooth-colored fillings that look natural and add to the overall strength of treated teeth. The main benefit of a filling is that it will seal off any voids that are present on the tooth. This will prevent bacteria and plaque from accessing the inside of the tooth and causing damage.
The team at Independent Dental Care is ready to help your child achieve great oral health and a winning smile. Remember, starting early will give your child the best chance of maintaining healthy teeth as an adult. Please call us at (239) 437-8900 to schedule an appointment.
