You want the best care for your children, and that includes protecting their precious smiles. At Smile Design Studios, we enjoy working with families and helping children grow up with healthy, beautiful smiles. Our friendly staff takes the time to make our younger patients feel comfortable during their important checkups and cleanings. Our dental team helps kids learn the importance of caring for their teeth and gums.
General dental care is crucial for growing smiles. Children should have their first dental checkup by their first birthday and routine checkups at least once a year. We offer convenient family block appointments to make it easier for our busy parents to bring in their kids for routine dental checkups. We can see the whole family at one time, making it easier to stay on top of your family’s oral care.
We Love Your Kids!
We know how important it is for kids to have a pleasant experience when they first start going to the dentist. Our team loves working with children, and we have a comfortable, fun environment for them to enjoy. They can watch movies or use their phones with our free Wi-Fi during their visit. We want to help them create good oral health habits that will protect their smiles for a lifetime.
Dental Sealants for Kids
On top of routine checkups, cleanings, tooth repairs and even orthodontics for teens, we offer dental sealants at our office. Dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth. It is usually placed on the back teeth (the premolars and molars) to prevent tooth decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth.
Thorough brushing and flossing can remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth. However, it cannot always get into all the nooks and crannies of the back teeth to remove the food and plaque. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas from tooth decay by “sealing out” plaque and food, which is especially important for kids and teens.
