Dr. Coleman will put your children at ease so they actually enjoy their visits. She uses the latest technologies in children's dentistry that are less time consuming and easier for the patient, and she administers to their needs with gentle thoughtfulness. Our team teaches our young patients good dental hygiene to help them keep their natural teeth for a lifetime. We enjoy all their visits starting at age one and look forward to each one thereafter.
We want every generation of children to be able to enjoy their dental visits and not feel anxiety or fear. As many of our parents have happily related, we are accomplishing this goal! Our office has a cheerful atmosphere so children are calm. No matter what fears or problems your child may experience, we can help them feel relaxed and secure.
Our team helps your children maintain good dental health by teaching them
proper daily dental care. Their teeth are more susceptible to decay than
adults' teeth for various reasons. Children eat throughout the day, which
exposes their teeth to acid more frequently. Kids also do not brush as
well as needed, increasing the chance of developing more cavities at a
We advise parents to be a part of their kids' daily brushing and flossing to make sure they do the best cleaning possible. With good daily care, healthier food choices, professional cleanings, and mineralizing teeth with a dental sealant, the start of cavities can be greatly reduced.
Children often do not brush thoroughly. But even the most meticulous
brushing can miss certain areas in the grooves and contours of teeth. As
bacteria build up, plaque forms and leads to decay. Even the smallest area
of decay will need a filling to prevent further damage.
We have a preventive treatment that can keep this from happening. With just one application of a dental sealant, your child decreases the risk of decay and increases the probability of keeping his or her natural teeth for a lifetime.
It's a quick and simple treatment. First, the teeth are cleaned, then sterilized. One thin coating of the sealant is applied to all teeth surfaces. It is clear and invisible. Dr. Coleman applies a curing light to bond the sealant to the teeth. And that's the whole procedure that does not require any shots, drills, or enamel removal!
We highly recommend this easy treatment for both children and adolescents.
Your entire family deserves a healthy smile! Give us a call today at (317) 875-7645 to schedule a visit for everyone.
