Dentistry for Children and Young Patients
All good dentistry requires a gentle approach, but caring for children’s smiles also requires experience in working with children and their unique dental health needs. In addition to providing child-specific treatment options, we also know how to help young patients feel comfortable and at ease while at our office.
Because personal hygiene is paramount to a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles, our children’s dentistry techniques include fun education on the importance good hygiene at home. We can teach you and your children how to make the most of your toothbrush and floss to keep your smiles healthy and future dental visits simple!
How We Protect Young Smiles
Young smiles are still developing, and don’t always qualify for more advanced restorative dentistry options, like crowns or root canal treatment, when teeth are afflicted. Therefore, prevention is typically the best medicine.
For improved protection against cavities, we may recommend fluoride treatments to boost the protective enamel around your child’s teeth. Dr. Newton may suggest dental sealants, which protect the grooves in the chewing surfaces of back teeth. If your child displays tooth and/or bite misalignment, Dr. Newton may recommend orthodontic treatment with a specialist to avoid more severe alignment problems in the future.
