We believe in dentistry for the whole family, and that includes your youngest family members.
Our office begins seeing children at a young age to promote a healthy foundation for excellent dental health right from the start. We also work with parents on techniques and education so that they have the tools to succeed when it comes to oral care for their kids.
At Cathedral Dental, our entire staff is patient and experienced with dentistry for children at age 5 years and up. We strive to provide the best dental care for all ages!
Please feel free to check out some of the information below concerning common questions about children’s dentistry.
Children's First Dental Visit
Our dentists begin seeing patients at age ages 5 and up. At your child’s first visit, we will help familiarize them with our dental office, so they feel completely comfortable. We will show them their teeth in the mirror, take them for a ride in the chair, and brush their teeth. That way, when it is time for their dental cleanings and other regular care to start, everything is familiar.
We believe all great dental health begins with an excellent preventive routine. That is why we work with parents to create a successful home care regimen, including brushing and flossing, avoiding sugary treats, and eating a good diet to promote healthy teeth and gums.
We complement excellent home care with routine examinations and cleaning appointments. If necessary, we can also offer additional preventive treatments such as fluoride and sealants to keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong.
Fluoride & Dental Sealants
Fluoride is an important part of your children’s dental health as it helps prevent tooth decay and strengthens the enamel. Fluoride is found in small amounts in our water system, many types of toothpaste, and some of the foods we eat.
Dental sealants are a plastic coating that we apply to your child’s teeth to prevent decay. If your child is at high risk for decay or has particularly deep grooves in their teeth, we can apply dental sealants to keep food and bacteria from settling in those grooves where brushing and flossing cannot reach. Dental sealants are less expensive and less invasive than fillings. They can last for up to five years and can be replaced once they wear off.
