Our doctors can put your children at ease for their treatments. Our
thoughtfulness is reflected in the way we provide dental care in a
gentle manner. We use the latest advancements that make visits easier
with less time in the dental chair.
We teach our young patients how to care for their teeth on a daily basis and instill the concept that proper care will help them keep their natural teeth for a lifetime. We enjoy every visit, beginning with their first tooth, and seeing them change each year as they grow up.
It is our goal to have each generation of children grow up without fear of dentistry. Parents have told us they are very pleased that their children enjoy their visits to our office. We can help with an active or scared child to make them feel comfortable and relaxed.
We believe in teaching children good dental hygiene to prevent oral
health problems. The best dentistry is less dentistry by preventing
whatever problems you possibly can.
Children's teeth are susceptible to cavities for several reasons:
Any amount of decay, even the smallest cavity, will require a
restoration. Is there a treatment that can help in the prevention of
cavities? Yes! Dental sealants have been proven to be very effective in
the fight against cavities. It is one quick and easy application to the
back teeth that will help to preserve children's and adolescents' adult
teeth for a lifetime.
The whole procedure takes just minutes! After the teeth are cleaned, one thin coating of a clear sealant is applied to the exposed surfaces. The dentist uses a curing light to bond the application to teeth. And that is all there is to it. No shots, drilling, or tooth removal are necessary. We highly recommend this treatment to reduce the occurrence of cavities.
You've probably read or heard about stem cell research in the news.
Studies have shown that using human stem cells for many dreaded diseases
can cure the condition. They work by regenerating many of the body's
vital functions. They can heal many types of tissue and have already
shown to successfully treat illnesses such as: brain injuries, heart
disease, arthritis, Muscular Dystrophy, Leukemia, Crohn's disease,
Multiple Sclerosis, diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, gum disease, and
sports injuries. There are even anti-aging applications.
Is it possible to store some of your stem cells to be used later on in life to combat disease? Yes, now we have the knowledge and capability to store the stem cells from your teeth. Amazingly, rather than discarding children's primary teeth, they can be preserved for future medical needs when they arise.
Your entire family deserves a healthy smile! Give us a call today at 575-522-1983 to schedule a visit for everyone.
