Preventative Dental Care in Northborough
We know you care about your children and want them to have the very best of everything. One of the greatest gifts you can give your child is a head start on a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.
The Importance of Preventive Care for Your Child
Preventive care is essential for protecting your child’s oral health. According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly 20% of children between the ages of 2 and 19 have untreated cavities, making tooth decay one of the most common (but preventable) chronic childhood diseases.
The problem with tooth decay goes beyond oral health – cavities can also affect your child’s speech, eating and nutrition, learning, and playing. At Children’s Dentistry of Northborough, prevention through education about good oral health is our primary focus.
The risk for decay and gum disease can easily be reduced with regular dental visits, proper oral hygiene, and sound nutrition. We use the most up-to-date equipment, techniques, and materials to ensure your child’s complete comfort and care.
Our team of friendly professionals loves working with kids and will do everything necessary to make sure your child’s visits are fun, comfortable, and enjoyable. Nothing makes us happier than seeing our young patients leave our office with a big smile!
Treatment That Fits Your Child’s Unique Needs
Our doctors and hygienists are skilled in working with children, and before we make any recommendations, we will spend some time talking to you about your child’s oral health, hygiene, and nutrition habits. This allows us to evaluate your child’s overall dental health and develop a treatment plan that takes their unique needs into account.
Based on the results of our assessment, we may recommend extra brushing or flossing, fluoride gel, or Xylitol to protect and strengthen their teeth. Dental sealants are also an effective way to prevent cavities and keep your child’s teeth healthy. If we do find a cavity, you don’t have to worry how your child will respond because we offer comfortable no-shot, no-drill laser dentistry, and TVs with movies in our treatment rooms.
