Going to the dentist at any age can be intimidating to some, but it is especially so with children. Our talented and comforting team at Peregrine Family Dentistry will be able to create a relaxing environment for your child to feel at ease during their appointment. We want to make sure your child is informed and understands what happens during a dental exam, that way they are included in the process.
We will take the time out to teach your child proper brushing and flossing techniques and routines, as it is important to make sure healthy dental habits are established early. If we find some sort of decay, like a cavity, during your child’s appointment, we will go over the options to best take care of the situation. With each appointment, we will remind your child of the brushing and flossing techniques, always keeping the information fresh in their minds.
If desired, your child’s dental appointment may include fluoride treatment and dental sealants. Fluoride is a key mineral in making sure your child’s teeth grow to be strong, and it is also a key factor in preventing cavities. Dental sealants are protective coverings that can be placed on your child’s molars. Because teeth such as molars have many grooves and pits, it can be an ideal location for bacteria to make your child’s tooth its new home. With dental sealants, bacteria are blocked from settling in those grooves, resulting in a healthier, happier smile!
Our top priority for all of our patients, especially our youngest ones, is that you feel comfortable and well taken care of throughout your entire appointment. Building healthy relationships and healthy smiles is our number one goal, and we are not satisfied until all of our patients, young and old, are proud of their smile!
