Children are special – and so are their smiles! Dr. Skatvold and Dr. Johnson and our team enjoy teaching children and teens how to properly care for their teeth. By establishing a fun outlook on dental visits and oral health early on, your children will be equipped to keep their teeth healthy throughout life. We’ll also give you tools and information to help your child develop a healthy, strong smile.
Back teeth can be difficult for children to keep clean. When sugars, starches, and food particles on back teeth aren’t removed during brushing and flossing, they lead to cavities. Our dentists often suggest dental sealants, which are clear plastic coatings that form a barrier to protect young teeth from decay. Fluoride supplements also deter cavities by attracting minerals that strengthen tooth enamel. These quick, easy, and painless procedures go a long way toward preserving dental health in children.
