Basically, children start visiting our facility when they are around 3 to 5 years old. We accept patients as young as 2 years old if they are able to sit comfortably throughout the dental session.
At the end of the kids’ visits, they get to pick a toy or prize from our beloved treasure chest. It’s a treat all kids love, and it makes them look forward to future visits. If you’re looking for a facility that can handle pretty much any dental treatment for the whole family, come to Perrigo Dental Care. You will be pleasantly surprised!
Treatments for Children at Perrigo Dental Care
Children at Perrigo Dental Care get training on how to brush their teeth and floss properly from of our experienced and friendly dental hygienists. Our children will also learn why dental hygiene is important for their overall health and will get tips that they can use at home to practice good oral health every day in a fun and gentle way. Our methods of dental cleaning are very comfortable for children.
We also offer the application of dental sealants on permanent teeth to keep children’s teeth from getting hardened plaque and eventually experiencing tooth decay. The sealants work as an extra protection from unwanted bacteria that stick around due to poor brushing and flossing. The application of dental sealants does not cause any pain to the patient. It entails applying a thin, plastic coating that hardens on the tooth after just a few seconds.
With dental sealants, the child may be able to avoid the application of fillings or crowns in the future, making them a great tooth decay protection option for children of all ages.
