At Children’s Dentistry of Morristown, our pediatric specialists are dedicated to making your children’s visit to our office informative, engaging, and positive experience. With a staff that loves children, our Mendham pediatric dental office
serves the oral healthcare needs of kids ranging in age from infancy through adolescence. Whether your kids are getting ready to start the new school year, or are experiencing dental pain of any kind, you can depend on our experienced team of dentists to provide the gentle, compassionate, and effective care they deserve.
As your Mendham pediatric dental office
, one of the most important services we provide for your children is encouraging instruction in the proper methods for brushing and flossing at home. By brushing and flossing daily, the risk for developing cavities—the single most common childhood dental condition—is greatly diminished. Maintaining good oral hygiene is critical in the prevention of dental disease, so we also provide professional teeth cleanings when your children come in for their checkup. Expertly removing any accumulated plaque from difficult to reach areas, we can help maintain the health of your little ones’ smile. We also periodically provide specialized treatments which further help to protect their developing teeth from cavities. As their permanent premolars and molars come in—typically between the ages of 6 and 12—dental sealants can be applied to the back teeth. Dental sealants are thin protective coatings, which smooth over the deep grooves on the biting surfaces of the back teeth, helping to prevent debris and dental plaque from accumulating. According to the Center for Disease Control, school age children with dental sealants develop significantly fewer cavities that children without dental sealants.
When it comes to your children’s oral health, your Mendham pediatric dental office
is an exceptional resource. Proudly providing the instruction, treatment, and education necessary for your little ones to establish and maintain excellent oral health well into their adult lives, we welcome the opportunity to see their smiles! To schedule their next checkup at our office, give our friendly office staff a call today!
