At the office of O2 Dental Group, we place a special focus on the oral health of children. We use our knowledge along with child-friendly techniques to create the perfect environment for comfortable and relaxed dental care for our young patients. We understand the unique needs of children, and we will work to give them an excellent foundation for a lifetime of exceptional oral health.
As a measure of preventive care, we offer dental sealants and fluoride applications for children. Sealants are a thin, invisible coating of plastic material that is painted on the pits and grooves of the molars to prevent cavities. They are mostly used for children but are also effective for adults at high risk of tooth decay. The use of sealants can reduce the chances of tooth decay by up to seventy percent, preventing the need for restorative treatments in future and allowing you to protect the health of your child's teeth. In addition to sealants, we offer topical fluoride applications in gel, foam and varnish variants to further protect your child’s teeth from cavities and to add strength to the tooth enamel.
We also offer tooth-colored fillings and crowns to help restore your child’s teeth when necessary. Tooth-colored fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of teeth. These metal-free fillings look natural and add strength to teeth that have been weakened due to cavities. A crown is a “cap” that can be used to strengthen a damaged tooth or to replace a missing tooth.
Our special emergency dentistry services for children make it possible for you bring your child in on the same day in cases where they need immediate professional dental care.
