PEDIATRIC

Good oral hygiene practice is important and should start as early as infancy. It’s best for your child to have the first dentist appointment by the time he/she is one or two years old. Early dental care sets your children up for success for a healthy mouth in their future. Pine Tree Dental Care is ready to be your family dentist and protect your children’s teeth for the rest of their lives.

Kids are notorious for being bad brushers and extra attention is needed to protect their teeth. In order to protect your children’s teeth, Pine Tree Dental Care offers a number of services  to keep those mouths clean, happy, and healthy! We assist with:

  • Sealants: The American Dental Association recommends dental sealants for kids when their adult teeth arrive. These sealants will fill out grooves in the teeth where food and bacteria hide.
  • Fluoride Treatments: Fluoride is an important mineral for children’s teeth because it can reverse early signs of decay and protects from acid damage.
  • Metal-Free Fillings: Metal-free fillings match the color of the tooth while protecting its structure.
  • Athletic Mouth Guards: Sports can play a huge role in a child’s life, but without a mouth guard, your kid is at risk for chipped, cracked, or broken teeth! Pine Tree Dental Care recommends a custom fit mouth guard to ensure the best fit and protection.
