Preventive Oral Hygiene Instruction:
This includes proper brushing, flossing and eating habits, ideal fluoride levels and the use of pit and fissure sealants. We strive to provide a fun, educational environment where children learn about the importance of good dental hygiene.
This includes children’s fillings, crowns and prosthesis, including treatment of the often devastating nursing bottle decay. Our doctors are committed to discussing all options before these procedures and answering all questions you may have. Always working for the goal of a healthy smile is their priority.
Growth and Development and Braces:
A bite that does not meet properly ( a malocclusion) can be inherited, or some types may be acquired. Some causes of malocclusion include missing or extra teeth, crowded teeth or misaligned jaws. Accidents or developmental issues, such as finger or thumb sucking over an extended period of time, may cause malocclusions. Some minor malocclusions may be corrected in our office, however, severe malocclusions will need to be treated by an orthodontist.
