A lot of children feel scared or uneasy about dental visits, and at Grace Dental Smiles we take their fear seriously. Our goal is to make your child’s visit a positive and pleasant experience. We always treat our younger patients with extra patience, sensitivity, and care and have equipped our office with kid-friendly amenities to help them feel more at home.
Your Child’s Visit to Grace Dental Smiles
While you check in at our reception desk, your child can play with our toys, books, and video games. Our treatment rooms are just as kid-friendly with pillows, blankets, and TVs on the ceiling to keep your child entertained while we work. You’re more than welcome to accompany your child to the treatment area while he or she gets familiar with our office and staff. After their visit, your kids can pick out a balloon and a surprise from our treasure chest! These unique dental experiences help shape a child’s attitude toward dentistry for many years to come, which is why we make it a priority to make sure that his or her visit to Grace Dental Smiles is as positive and stress-free as possible..
Children’s Dental Services
It’s never too early to begin a life-long, preventive dental care program focused on your child’s healthy smile. Starting on your child’s first birthday, regular checkups and cleanings are the best way for Dr. Cherian to catch problems, such as tooth decay and improper tooth eruption. We offer a wide-range of comprehensive and preventive dental services for toddlers, teens, and every age in between.
Routine Cleanings and Exams
Dr. Cherian will thoroughly discuss his findings with you after your child’s cleaning and exam, along with his recommendations for treatment and long-term maintenance.
Protective Dental Sealants
Dental sealants fill in the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, which can prevent bacteria and food particles from getting stuck in those teeth and causing cavities. Best of all, Dr. Cherian can apply sealants quickly with no shots or drilling!
Fluoride protects teeth from decay and can even help reverse the early stages of decay. Most toothpaste include a safe and effective amount of fluoride, but Dr. Cherian can provide a more concentrated fluoride rinse after your child’s cleaning to really fight off decay.
Custom Athletic Mouthguards
Athletic mouthguards shield your child’s teeth and soft tissues from injury during high-impact activities. They can also help prevent more serious head trauma like concussions.
Tooth-colored fillings require fewer shots and less drilling than traditional silver fillings, and the results look so similar in color and texture to natural teeth that you won’t even notice they are there!
