Receiving high quality dental treatment is just as important for children as it is for adults. We take great pride in helping our younger patients achieve excellent oral health and pediatric dental services in the surrounding communities.
Maintaining positive dental health and a great-looking smile is a process that starts early in life. Young people need to take precautions just as older people do to prevent serious conditions.
We feature a top-notch pediatric dentistry program that helps children and parents understand how to prevent serious oral health problems and issues. Children and teens who make regular dental visits during their younger years are much more likely to maintain strong and healthy teeth throughout their life. We ensure every child who visits Mirror Lake Dentistry feels relaxed and comfortable and excited for their next visit. Our lobby features refreshments for kids as they wait for their appointment, TV’s to entertain them during the visit and extended hours to make it easier to arrange an appointment that works with school and other activities.
Questions and Answers
What does pediatric dentistry include?
Pediatric dentistry includes using sealants to help prevent cavities and tooth decay on a child’s back molars. This is a proven preventive treatment that works by applying a thick acrylic coating over the teeth and allowing it to harden, which keeps out unwanted bacteria and plague that could otherwise harm the teeth.
Additionally, using fluoride applications to strengthen your child’s tooth enamel is extremely helpful in preventing decay. This involves applying fluoride directly to the teeth—it will bond the enamel and help keep teeth strong and healthy, it could even reverse decay.
What are the common issues of dental health in children?
Many of a kid’s dental problems are the same ones affecting adults, but as children’s teeth are still developing, untreated dental conditions can cause poor and misaligned tooth development, leading to a more serious problem as a child grows up.
Some of the most common issues with children are:
- Tooth decay
- Bad breath
- Sensitive teeth
- Gum disease
- Teeth grinding
- Canker Sores
- Baby teeth-loss
- Over-retained primary teeth
- Dental Anxiety
