The best way to achieve a beautiful smile as an adult is to make regular dental visits at an early age. Many parents don’t realize that their child is at risk for developing tooth decay as soon as their first teeth begin emerging. That is why our dentists recommend that a child makes their first dental visit by their first birthday. From there, your child should continue to make dental visits twice per year so that we can monitor their teeth as they grow and develop. It’s much easier to maintain one’s oral health early in life than it is to correct problems in adulthood. You can count on our team to keep your child’s teeth healthy.

Cavities occur when the teeth are left exposed to harmful bacteria, tartar and plaque for extended periods of time. Sealants prevent this unwanted exposure by covering the teeth with a thin plastic coating. Not only are sealants safe and easy to apply, but they can also go a very long way towards keeping your child’s teeth healthy.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that offers proven benefits for teeth. This is especially true for young children whose teeth are still growing. Fluoride can actually bond with the developing tooth enamel and provide the structure with much-needed strength. This will make the teeth less likely to experience unwanted issues later on. Fluoride can even reverse the early effects of tooth decay and stop serious problems before they develop.
Although we do everything possible to prevent cavities, they may still appear occasionally. We can repair cavities that are caught early on with dental fillings. Our practice offers composite fillings that are effective, durable and look natural. These composite fillings are also designed to add to a tooth’s strength so that fractures and breakages are prevented. If your child ever develops a cavity, their teeth will be in the best possible care.
If severe damage happens, your child will need a restoration that works effectively and looks natural. Our dental crowns provide the perfect solution in these situations. Our crowns offer great performance in chewing tough foods. Your child’s tooth will look and function as good as new after receiving a crown.
Many children and teens experience dental injuries and sudden oral health problems that require prompt intervention. This can range from a sudden toothache to a chipped or cracked tooth. When your child needs unexpected treatment, Glacier Peak Dentistry will be on their side. We operate extended hours, and we will do our very best to quickly accommodate your child during their time of need.
