Gentle Children’s Dentistry in Prairieville
Receiving preventive childhood treatment is the best way to prevent a lifetime of dental problems and to maintain good oral health for life. At Prestige Dentistry, we understand this. It is our mission to be a true family dental practice and provide care to all ages, including kids. The team at Prestige Dentistry is delighted to treat children from the age of three and up with gentle, comprehensive care. Our aim is to give your child the proper dental care he/she needs to preserve healthy teeth from now and long into the adult years.
Patients at Prestige Dentistry have been bringing their kids to our office from an early age. When children are introduced to dentistry early on, they are much more likely to keep healthy dental habits as adults. We often hear from adults that they had put off seeing the dentist due to a negative experience they had as a child. Rest assured that we do everything we can to provide a positive, wonderful experience for your child and that your child feels comfortable and safe with us for each visit.
Preventive Treatment for Children
The best way to prevent dental problems at any age, including in children, is with routine preventive care. At our office, we are pleased to provide the preventive treatment needed to maintain your child’s healthy smile.
Exams and Cleanings
Bringing children in for professional cleanings and checkups twice a year is the best method for preventing serious dental problems. These visits ensure that any problems are caught and fixed before they progress and become serious. They help us track your child’s oral health.
At your child’s first visit, we will complete a thorough comprehensive examination of all teeth, soft tissue, and hard tissue, including an oral cancer screening. We will take the necessary x-rays and perform a professional cleaning.
At the end of the visit, we will apply a fluoride varnish to the surfaces of the teeth, either with a soft brush or fluoride trays. Studies have shown that fluoride can provide lasting benefits for the teeth for up to several months after the child’s visit, and helps to prevent the occurrence of decay.
Molars and premolars often have deep grooves that are difficult to clean. These grooves make it easy for plaque and bacteria to accumulate on the tooth, causing decay. The application of dental sealants is a great way to prevent decay on these teeth. Dental sealants are a thin plastic coating usually applied to these uneven surfaces to seal out bacteria and food particles, preventing the formation of decay. Sealant application is a simple, effective, and painless process.
Comfortable Care for Children
Dr. Oza and the staff understand that your child’s comfort is of the utmost importance. Our team at Prestige Dentistry shines at building a relationship with your child that involves trust and relating to them on their level. We make sure the child is comfortable with the sights and sounds of the dental office and has a pleasant experience.
